On behalf of CAIR-Arizona and Islamic Cultural Center of Tempe - we would like to invite you to a FREE and empowering event this weekend: Day of Justice!
This promises to be a unique and thought-provoking series of panels, lectures and discussions - along with a great creative portion to express the concept of justice in Islam.
The Phoenix community welcomes our visitors from out of town:
