The 2nd annual P.A.T.H. Training Seminar will be held in Jacksonville, Fla., May 20-22. Founded by Brother Hashim Hakim, P.A.T.H. is an acronym which stands for Patience, Attraction, Technique, and Humility. It is a community focused initiative dedicated to making our communities a decent and safe place to live.
The three-day seminar, designed to help attendees better help the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in the work of uplifting the Black community, will include a host of activities designed to motivate, inspire, and equip participants with tools to help them to help improve their communities around the country.
“The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has told us we need to make all men and boys join the F.O.I. Well, ‘what’s going to compel them?’ asked the Minister. Answering his own question, the Minister said, ‘It’s our demonstration.’ We are going to put on a demonstration in Jacksonville and show people how to duplicate this model in their city,” said Brother Hashim. The F.O.I. (Fruit of Islam) are the men of the Nation of Islam under the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and leadership of Min. Farrakhan.
Seminar events will include saltwater fishing, self-defense training, sales techniques, building a customer base, how to build self-esteem, and community trash cleaning initiative, an awards ceremony and dinner banquet. “We are going to have fun and teach in the process,” said Bro. Hashim.
The weekend will end on Sunday with an inspirational message at newly-established Mosque No. 66. and a Stop the Violence Block Party/Hip-Hop concert featuring Hecava Mecca, Goalden Chyld and Hashim Hakim.
Brother Hashim is originally from Chicago where his program was founded in 2005. He is the author of books “The P.A.T.H.” Volume 1 & 2 (Our Way of Devotion) as well as the children’s book “Do Not Touch My Spots” (Sex Abuse prevention).
