PURIFICATION OF THE HEART SERIES- PART 1
Duration: 1 hour
Day & Time:
US: Every Tuesday 1:30 PM CST
UK: Every Tuesday 7:30 PM
PK: Every Wednesday 12:30 AM
This course is designed to introduce students to the importance of the spiritual heart in the development of their relationship with Allah swt. In term 1, Purification of the Heart explores how to purify the negative forces in ourselves, focusing on major spiritual diseases like arrogance, envy, materialism, malice, and more. Each session will first define a particular spiritual ailment, then discuss how to recognize its signs and symptoms, and finally analyze how to treat it in light of Quran, Hadith, and teachings of classical scholars. In this way, the course aims to build a stronger bond with Allah swt and at the same time find practical Islamic ways of addressing the personal problems faced by Muslim women today.
THE DUTIES OF BROTHERHOOD IN ISLAM By Imam Al-Ghazali (rah)
Duration: 1 hour
Day & Time:
US: Every Thursday 7:00 PM CST
UK: Every Friday 1:00 AM UK
PK: Every Friday 6:00 AM
Fulfilling the rights of our fellow brothers and sisters in Islam is a fundamental principle of living our lives as Muslims. Imam Ghazali in his encyclopedic masterpiece, the Ihya Uloom al-Deen, has dedicated an essay to the Islamic concept of brotherhood. In this course we will study a translation of this text in English ‘The Duties of Brotherhood in Islam’ by Mohtar Holland. This course will help students improve their interpersonal skills and develop a proper understanding of the rights and responsibilities associated with forming bonds for the sake of Allah swt. With this aim in mind we will study chapters on holding one’s tongue, forgiveness, loyalty, sincerity, material assistance, personal aid and informality.
If easily possible, students in the US and UK are requested to please purchase a copy of 'The Duties of Brotherhood in Islam' by Imam Al-Ghazali (rah) translated by Mohtar Holland available here
