Comments:
Lo, like a candle wrestling with the night
Over my own self I pour my flooding tears
I spent myself, that there might be more light,
More loveliness, more joy for other men

Translated from Allama Iqbal’s poem Rumuz e Bekhudi 1918 (The mysteries of selflesness) .

The recurrent themes of Iqbal's poetry are references to the past glories of Islam, complaints about the present decadence of Muslims, and a call to unity and reform. Reform can be achieved, he argues, by strengthening the individual through three successive stages: obedience to the law of Islam, the development of self (Khudi) through discipline and integrity, and committing to serve through a life of selflessness (Be khudi)

8pm Adjourn

About the Speaker

Dr. Teepu Siddique, an internationally recognized researcher, has received numerous awards for his work in neuromuscular disorders, especially amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease.
He earned his medical degree in 1973 from the University of Karachi in Pakistan, In 1981, as a junior faculty member at the University of Southern California medical school, Dr. Siddique decided to take on Lou Gherig’s disease. Dr. Siddique joined his colleagues in testing possible treatments for the disease, but he soon became frustrated. With no known causes, he was fighting a war against an elusive enemy. ALS affects up to 30,000 people in the United States; it renders the muscles of the body useless while leaving the mind unaffected. There is no effective treatment or cure for ALS.
ALS is inherited in 10 percent of cases and thus Dr. Siddique assumed there must be a gene responsible for the inheritance. In 1984, he transferred to Duke University Medical School, where he and his team embarked on a search for the culprit. They discovered a gene mutation is responsible for a rare, slowly progressive, early-onset form of the disease, called juvenile inherited ALS.
Dr. Siddique’s awards include the 1994 Hope through Caring Award from the Les Turner ALS Foundation; the Forbes Norris Award from the International Alliance of ALS/Motor Neuron Disease Associations in 1995; the Sheila Essey Award for ALS Research from the American Academy of Neurology and ALS Association, which he received as a co-recipient in 1996; the Teacher Investigator Development Award from the National Institutes of Health in 1985; and the Third Annual Eleanor and Lou Gehrig Award from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1997. He is the author of more than 200 journal articles, abstracts and book chapters.

Dr. Siddique is an avid student of Allama Iqbal, the greatest Muslim poet of the 20th century, who wrote extensively in Persian and Urdu.. Dr. Teepu heads the Iqbal Society in Chicago and is a keenly sought after speaker on the poet’s works and philosophy.

About Community Builders, West www.mycommunitybuilders.com
Tel. 773 775-1990 
Community Builders, Chicago (CBC) is a group of community activists engaged in facilitating the social and economic development of the Muslim community in Chicago. The group has been in existence since 2003. There are presently two chapters. CB North meets on the first Friday of each month from 7pm-10pm. At present the meetings are held at the Holiday Inn Northshore, 5300 W. Touhy Ave, Skokie, IL.  CB West meets on the third Friday of each month from 7pm-9.00pm. Currently their meetings are held at One Trans Am Plaza Drive, Conference Room of Batuta Inc. Oakbrook Terrace, IL. Both chapter meetings offer dinner (optional) for a fee but the meetings are free and open to the public.
  
  We believe that in order to promote our interests in America we need to establish more than Mosques and Islamic Schools in our communities. We feel that there is a need to establish institutions that will serve the social, political and economic needs of our community as well. Such institutions could be in the area of health care, business, finance, social welfare, media, public policy, philanthropy, etc.
  Thus far Community Builders is facilitating the growth  of five independent programs in the community: These are the following:
  
  1. Compassionate Care Network, providing affordable health care alternatives for the uninsured, www.ccnchicago.com
  2. Sabeel Food Pantry, providing free food distribution to the needy in Chicago's west side, www.sabeelpantry.org
  3. Chicago Muslim Yellow Pages, connecting Muslims with Muslim businesses, www.chicagomuslimyellowpages.com
  4. MCC Food Pantry, providing free food packages to the needy in Chicago's north side, www.mccchicago.org
  5. MCC Senior Group providing educational and recreational programs for people 50 and above, www.mccchicago.org
 
  We realize that in order to strengthen the economic condition of our community it is important to improve its educational standard. This applies to every level of the community, stretching from the young to the old and includes not only formal school and college based education but also a wider availability of community learning through educational workshops and open forums. Throughout the year CBC organizes Forums and Workshops on topics of community interest and need.
  
    Our goal is to improve the condition of our community and also of the society we live in. We believe this can be best accomplished through first, an in depth  discussion  and understanding of the problems facing us, next, seeking options  in the light of the guidance in the Quran and the Sunna (the words and deeds of the Prophet,pbuh) and finally providing solutions through  the many talents and resources we have within our community itself.
  
  We  utilize several modes of communication including open forums, workshops, panel discussions as well as radio, print  and electronic media to explore ideas, share experiences and establish programs for the common good.  Empowering people through education and networking remains our mission.

Ayah of the Day
And (remember) when you met (the army of the disbelievers on the Day of the battle of Badr), He showed them to you as few in your eyes and He made you appear as few in their eyes, so that Allâh might accomplish a matter already ordained (in His Knowledge), and to Allâh return all matters (for decision). [Al-Anfal 8 : 44]
Hadith of the Day
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri: Allah’s Messenger said, “There are two characteristics which are not combined in a believer; miserliness and a bad character.” (At-Tirmidhi reported it and there is weakness in its chain of narrators)
Quote of the Day
Aisha asked the Prophet, "O Allah's Messenger, to which of my two neighbors should I send a gift?" He replied, "The one that's closer to you." Hadith
