Purification and Prayer

 

No Muslim can do without this course! Everyone must perform salah; therefore everyone must study about salah. It's as simple as that. How much time do we spend on our salah? How important is it to us? Now consider the possibility that we might be doing it all wrong! It happens to many people every day. To avoid this, courses like this are absolutely essential. You will be taken through the absolute essentials of purification and salah by an expert teacher so that you can be sure of the validity of your salāh in future.

 

The course will cover the following:

 

  • Introduction to Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) covering aspects of Usul al-fiqh (principles of jurisprudence) and the historical development of fiqh;
  • Comprehensive study of the rules and methods of Purification;
  • Comprehensive study of the of the Fiqh of Prayer

 

Love & Mercy: Marriage and Divorce

 

Study the principles upon which valid marriage is based and understand the distribution of rights within the marital relationship between husband and wife. Also learn about the elements which can break a marriage and about the various stages of divorce and the correct method of affecting it should it unfortunately become necessary. This course is essential for young people planning to marry and those who have already married. It is surprising how much more we can learn about matters that we might think are common sense or cultural. Islam has given very specific guidance to the married couple so that they can have a fulfilling life; where it does not work out, marriage can be ended correctly, and thus social integrity is maintained in and out of marriage. This course will cover the whole chapter of marriage and divorce as discussed by the ‘ulama over the centuries.

 

The Lawful and Unlawful

 

This course will discuss what is halal and haram in Islam beyond what we clearly know within the realm of worship. The course will deal with matters such as the halal and haram of food, earnings, clothing and hijab, manners and etiquettes, and other minorities related miscellaneous issues.

 

The Pilgrimage (Weekend course)

 

We often try to learn about hajj and ‘umrah from talks in the masjid: no notes, no resources and thus no real learning. Learn all about the rules and practical ins and outs of performing Hajj and Umrah in a structured course, the sacred pilgrimage carried out by the Prophet Ibrahim AS and taught to us by our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW. The course will cover every aspect of Hajj and Umrah equipping every participant with the technical and practical knowledge to be able to deal with all of the various situations one will encounter when performing hajj. Learn to avoid common pitfalls and find out ways in which you can maximize the use of your time whilst you are visiting the House of Allah SWT. The teacher will be an expert on the theory of Hajj and Umrah as well as someone who has undertaken the journey and thus will be about to inform you of the many modern day issues that are likely to affect you when you make your journey and whilst you stay in Saudi Arabia. You will also be given plenty of advice on clever ways in which you can make your hajj journey as hassle free as possible and avoid practical difficulties. The course will cover the rules of Hajj, Umrah, and Ziyarah of Madinah and the grave of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW.

 

Fasting and Charity (Weekend course)

 

Fasting and Zakah are two of the five pillars of Islam and are both fardh 'ayn (obligatory on every individual). With Ramadan so near, every Muslim must take spiritual and academic preparation for it. It is also common for Muslims to choose Ramadan as the ideal month to fulfil the Zakah obligation as their reward is multiplied by paying their Zakah in the holy month of Ramadān.

 

For every act of worship undertaken by a Muslim there is always an additional obligation: seeking enough knowledge about it so that it is performed correctly. This is known as obligatory knowledge. Just as fasting and Zakah are fard 'ayn, so too is seeking knowledge about them fard 'ayn. A fact often not understood or under-emphasised by many Muslims.

 

We have organised two short courses to help brothers and sisters fulfil this obligation effectively. These courses are designed to cover all of the necessary knowledge needed to discharge these two duties correctly as well as maximise reward from Allah (swt).

It covers the basic articles of Iman that are essential to one's faith as emphasised by the Prophet SAW in the hadith of Jibraeel: namely, belief in Allah, His angels, books, messengers, the last day and good and bad fate. Students will learn about the importance of correct beliefs and how the ulama developed this into a subject of study to preserve the correct beliefs of Islam. The courses briefly deals with sects, classical and contemporary differences of opinion without being polemical, but rather with a view to giving the student a perspective that will enable him/her to remain strong on faith and avoid getting sucked in to debates and polemics.
