Islamic Circle of Mercer County
336 Lawrence Station Rd, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648
YM Sisters, YM Brothers and Lantern Initiative are bringing you this event in effort to raise awareness for domestic violence. We recognize that putting an end to domestic violence is everyone’s responsibility and that stopping this silent war against victims requires education and working together as a community. Through this event, we aim to educate the community about this important issue and promote taking individual and collective action against it. Domestic violence thrives when we are silent; but if we take a stand and work together, we can end domestic violence.
About the instructor:
Shaykh Dr. Mateen Khan was born and raised in the Philadelphia area. He completed his medical degree from Temple University Medical School, and specialized in Emergency Medicine.
As he began practicing as an Emergency Medicine physician, Shaykh Dr. Mateen simultaneously enrolled in the prestigious seminary program at Darul Uloom Al-Madania in Buffalo, where he spent six years intensively studying core disciplines of the traditional Islamic sciences, such as Arabic, Tafsir (Quranic Exegesis), Hadith (Prophetic Traditions), Fiqh (Jurisprudence), and other related subjects.
As the new branch of the seminary opened in Chatham, Ontario by the name of Darul Uloom Canada, he relocated to it and completed his graduation there, gaining Ijazas or authorizations to teach the various subjects, most notably, the six most authentic books of Hadith, namely, Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Sunan an-Nasai, Sunan ibn Majah and Sunan Abu Dawud.
