|Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh|
Below is a brief description of a poetry contest Ni'Ma is sponsoring. I received this from a friend who's working on their new website. This group (Ni'Ma) is up-and-coming, for now you can check out www.newmuslim.org. They hold classes in arabic and Islamic studies, taught by a lot of well-qualified instructors/shaykhs.
Anyways, as regards to the contest, you could win a trip to the Zaytuna Institute! But hurry, the deadline is soon and you have to be at the event to claim the prize, it seems. Unfortunately, I will not be able to compete due to my lack of skillz in rhyming and prose, but good luck!
