Intention: May we remember to look up and reflect.
Why is it important to look at the sky? Why did Muslims in the past spend so much time exploring the realms above us?
The Qur’an calls us to reflect on the beauty and majesty of nature; we look to read the 'signs' of the natural world. This is really why we explore creation and our place in the cosmos, nurturing awe and wonder in learning.
We learn meaningful knowledge, internalized values, and gain inspiring role models from Islamic civilization and tradition. We look to the past and also to what lies ahead of us, finding our place in the timeline of history.
We believe good deeds and stewardship are essential to our faith. We try to actualize this in our lives and share these values within the Sakinah community. Each of us makes a positive difference in the world.
