In this interactive halaqah, Ustadh Wisam Sharieff reminds us about opportunities throughout our daily lives where we can focus our attention and mind towards Allah in performing the simplest acts such as making wudhu, praying, eating and other acts in order to make ourselves physical and spiritual fit.
The first in a series of classroom-style lectures held at the world famous Abiquiu Madressa in New Mexico. The primary objective of this series was to educate non-Muslim teachers about the fundamental Islamic beliefs and practices within the context of an interactive and intensive spiritual retreat. In introducing this ambitious topic, Abdal Hakim Murad, a lecturer in theology at Cambridge University in England, asks two very engaging questions: What happens when you try to grasp the meaning and reality of another faith and why is Islam worth studying? After providing a more than adequate answer, he proceeds on to the much anticipated overview of the five pillars of Islam. Murad provides a highly intellectual perspective that is useful for non-Muslims as well as Muslims. (Recorded at the Dar al Islam Teachers’ Institute seminar). Other topics discussed: Islamic “clergy”, humility in studying another religion, the modern Muslim resurgence, Islamic “fundamentalism”, “Muhammadanism”, the Hadith of Gabriel, the idea of original sin, mosque architecture, and wudu (ablution).
Do you want the reward for help sharing Islamic knowledge to 500 people a day for the rest of your life and even when you pass away?
Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
"When a person dies, his deeds are cut off except for three: Continuing charity, knowledge that others benefited from, and a righteous son who supplicates for him."
