Thanks alot for all the info. Could you give me address or contact info for the schools in damascus. Also is there an age requirement?
Dar al-Mustafa in Yemen says you have to be 15.
Some places you have to be 18.
This again is for madrassas. The younger you are the better actually because the more you can learn insha Allah.
Are you Syrian Akhi? I am Syrian originally - I come from Salamiyah which is close to Hamah.
In Damascus there are the duroos of Shaykh Sa`eed Ramadan al-Bouti which are public lessons weekly. I do not exactly know the mosque but insha Allah I can find out for you.
Please email Shaykh Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Ninowy al-Husayni - at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask him for the addreses and names of scholars in Damascus. He insha Allah should be able to connect you with people. Try to start memorizing Juz `Amma of the Qur'an right now.
Thank you brother. I have been trying to find this information with much difficulty. Well my parents were born in Dimishq, I'm 15 and I have Syrian citizenship alhamdulliah so I shouldnt face to much problems from authorities. I have visited Syria twice. Not hama though I'm trying now to memorize the Quran just started. Inshallah I will be able to do so fast. So you think younger the better? That's what I though. I'll be 16 in May Inshallah. Thanks for the email address.Originally Posted by Omar HH
May I ask how old you are brother?
I have Syrian citizenship too!!! And American citizenship!
I love Syria (and America).
So you think it's good for me to go and study, I have many family there so I will have a place to live and people to check up on me and I wont be alone.(It wont be to hard to leave my family since I have family there)
If you have family up there and it's easy it would be good. But also if you can study over here and continue your schooling here it might be good for you. Weigh all of your options. I can't tell you what to do - do istikhara.
Also you have to consider your family - would they allow you to go over there?
And yes please go ask Shaykh Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Ninowy al-Husayni (a member of Ahlul Bayt also!) and he will insha Allah give you the exact scholars you can study under insha Allah if you tell him exactly what you want to study.
Do you speak Arabic fluently?
And if you have MSN we could talk - go PM me and insha Allah give me your MSN or AIM and we will insha Allah talk.
I can understand Arabic very well, speaking I'm pretty good, the only real problem is reading and writing but I know most of the alphabet now and I can read most words but the problem is knowing what the words mean. Yani I need to improve my vocabulary. But if its in context I can understand like when speaking. I cant pm because im not a member of the brothers forum. I have at least 3 familys that would allow me to stay with them.Originally Posted by Omar HH
