The Urgent Priorities for Muslims in the West
In this critical and timely talk, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus emphasizes and highlights the urgency of the preservation and dissemination of knowledge, which is the Prophetic inheritance. He continues to explain that Imam al-Ghazali highlighted three principles in his magnum opus, Ihya Ulum al-Din (Revival of the Religious Sciences), that are meant to bring about renewal of faith in people: knowledge, devotion and service.
According to Shaykh Yahya, establishing SeekersHub and other institutions of Islamic knowledge is the most important obligation of this time and fulfills these principles. “Learning the sciences of the Sacred Law, with an unbroken chain in the established traditional way, while utilizing the beneficial modern methods and ways of instruction and making it relevant to the times we live in, in order to facilitate practice.”
He expresses that this is what he sees when he looks at SeekersHub, and that no one should underestimate their potential in bringing this matter to fruition. He explains that realizing this potential is through seeking great matters from Allah, through His Greatness.
