Welcome Home

The Ta’leef community was born in the late 90's in people's homes. Learning happened with the sharing of good food, tea, coffee, and the sweet scent of "oud" (aloeswood). Newcomers to Islam not only felt welcomed, but were made to feel at home. If we were to try to describe Ta'leef in one word it would be just that; 'home'.

People often come through our doors feeling dislocated, lonely, seeking personal and spiritual growth. We are all in this together and have to see one another as family, and families need a home to grow in. As the saying goes, "Home is where the heart is" and the heart is where our work is.

May we be greeted in paradise by our Beloved, peace be upon him, with a smile and a 'Welcome home'.
