Pictures from my graduation ceremony at the University of Maryland, College Park. Alhamdulilah for Shaykh Abdul Kerim teaching us to honor the sunnah of the Holy Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasalam).
He is teaching us to hold on tight to these traditions and to never compromise, even if it means you will be the only one out of thousands to do so.
