US Travel Ban

January 30th, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order on January 27th that temporarily suspends all immigration for citizens of seven Muslim countries for 90 days. This has created confusion at airports and border crossings over who was affected by the ban and to what extent.

The ban affects people from Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and Libya. Even if you hold dual citizenship, you may be refused entry to the United States.

Entry to the United States is granted by the U.S Customs and Border Protection, a federal law enforcement agency. Please note the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) only controls entry into Canada.

  • Lessons from Prophet Yusuf (Joseph)

    December 3, 2016

    The story of Yusuf (also knon as Joseph) Peace be upon him is very encompassing. His life embodies many dimensions, many will be able to identify themselves with his life.

    It is appealing to the child, it strikes a chord to the young, it gives direction to the infatuated individual and it gives hope to the victim. It has solutions for the issue of sibling rivalry, it has a message for the ruler and a source of relief for those in distress.
