The Extent of Our Deeds: Giving Back to Imam Siraj Wahhaj

Imam Siraj Wahhaj is sick, and in need of our help. No words can truly verbalize what Imam Siraj means to the North American community, or what he has done for Muslims living in the West. So instead, we leave you with some inspiration from the Imam himself:
