During the Shaaban festivities in the month of April, the Mainstay Foundation partnered with the Islamic Institute of America in holding an event called the Knights of Light. This event celebrated the Imams of Ahlulbayt born in the months of Rajab and Shaaban. With opening remarks by the founder of the IIA, Sayyid Hassan Qazwini, a TED Talk by Br. Jalal Moughania, and recitations by Mulla Ali Fadhil, the program hosted hundreds of community members – young and old alike. As the emcee of the program, Sayyid Abathar Tajaldeen pumped the crowd with energy and the delightful surprise of raffle prizes. The celebration ended with the call to prayer and cupcakes distributed to the families in the name of the Knights of Light.
