Course Description

Knowledge is one of the most essential things for a Muslim to posses. Without Islamic knowledge one would be lost in life. –Possessing Knowledge allows mankind to evolve, our minds to become open and so Allah can guide us from darkness into light. During this seminar we’ll be covering the importance of Seeking Knowledge and its virtues. The first thing Allah commanded our Prophet ﷺ to do was “Read”.

“اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ * خَلَقَ الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ * اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ * الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ * عَلَّمَ الْإِنْسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ”
“Read in the name of your Lord who created- Created man from a clinging substance- Read, and your Lord is the most Generous- Who taught by the pen- Taught man that which he knew not.” (Al -‘Alaq)
