SeekersHub Global endeavours to nurture individuals to manifest the guidance of the Qur’an and Prophetic teachings in their own life.

SeekersHub is a non-profit Islamic educational portal. It is our mission to make sound knowledge from reliable scholars available anywhere, at any time, through online courses, on-the-ground seminars, engaging and inspiring Islamic media and through our Answers service — completely free of cost, with our Knowledge without Barriers initiative

Why SeekersHub?

In order to benefit you, knowledge must be sound, relevant and accessible. We at SeekersHub are dedicated to helping you to apply the mainstream, traditional understanding of Islam in your day-to-day life.

SeekersHub was established to fulfill the communal obligation (fard kifaya) of cultivating individuals and communities through the spread of knowledge. We take this obligation seriously. It is our goal to reach all segments of the Muslim community, excluding no one, and to operate on a large enough scale that anyone who wishes to learn will have the opportunity.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, although there is good in both. Be avid for all that benefits.” For those avid for the benefits of learning their deen, SeekersHub is there.

What Are Our Goals?

SeekersHub is committed to:

  • Promoting the mainstream understanding of Islam, both outwardly and inwardly
  • Supporting existing scholarship
  • Creating networks between ‘ulema, activists, and communities
  • Promoting female scholarship
  • Preparing current students of knowledge
  • Integrating online learning with on the ground programs

The Great Event: Surat al-Waqi'a

Register: http://seekershub.org/toronto/greatevent/ Surat al-Waqi`ah is one of the most beloved and most recited Suras of the Qur’an. This is because of the sense of urgency and opportunity it conveys. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will cover a thematic study of this Sura, its explanation (tafsir), key lessons, and how to nurture one’s relationship with Allah through deepening one’s understanding and relationship with this great Sura. It revolves around the Day of Judgment and the different levels of people--those close to Allah; the People of the Right Hand; and the People of the Left Hand--in their reckoning and eternal stations. The Sura also reminds of signs of Allah’s Oneness and Power; the reality of Resurrection and Hereafter; the stars as great signs of Allah; and the reality and consequences of Death.

Shaykh Yahya in Toronto: Extinguish the Fire: Overcoming Anger…

Imam Ghazali described anger as fire that burns away good. Shaykh Yahya Rhodus will cover Imam Ghazali’s profound teachings on how to restrain and control one’s anger—and the other destructive vices of hatred and envy. Shaykh Yahya will share profound but practical insights from Prophetic teachings and the wisdom of the scholars on how to rid oneself of these destructive qualities—and how to acquire their opposites (forbearance, love, and concern for others), which are Prophetic virtues. In an age where the fires of anger and hatred rage around us—and within us—this is a timely and critical series of programs, taught by one of the most impressive and learned Western Muslim scholars, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus.

Free Seminar: Why Adopt?

Why Adopt? The Urgency, Virtues and Practical Steps to Adoption REGISTER: seeke.rs/whyadopt Adoption is a neglected religious duty and an emphasized communal obligation.

In this seminar, with Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, we will see that (1) religiously, adoption is highly encouraged—and an obligation; and we will learn (2) how to adopt, practically. A representative from A representative from Permanency and Adoption Support Services (PASS) will also give a presentation. This seminar will also be available LIVE online. Register for updates.

Crisis of Refugees: Reflections on the Modern Condition

Registration is essential. Please register at http://bit.ly/rotmcautumn One of the most devastating crises affecting humanity in the modern age is the Crisis of Refugees from war ravaged countries, and Australia is no exception in this regard. In fact, the Australian government’s long-standing policies regarding refugees is amongst the most brutal and inhumane and contrary to Australia’s values. With an unending plethora of wars, extreme poverty and oppression, the world is experiencing an unprecedented exodus of people in search of safety. Women and children are highest on the list of victims of war and in constant state of fear and instability. In spite of Australian government’s politics on this issue, as Australian citizens we have a burden of responsibility to respond to this crisis. As Muslim Australians, we have a long way to go ourselves to advocate for and facilitate care for the refugees, many of whom are Muslims themselves. We need to look no further to find positive response to the crisis than the Prophetic Tradition itself when his community in Mecca were made refugees into Medina, and how the Prophetic community responded. What are some of the values we all share that should drive positive action regarding the refugee crisis? What are the core drivers by which there is an unprecedented crisis of people fleeing their homelands? How must we all respond, collectively and constructively this crisis that continues to land upon the boundaries of Australia? Al Ghazzali Centre invites you to join us for this quarter’s Reflections On the Modern Condition seminar, to discuss and explore the holistic realities of the refugee crisis upon both the refugees and the host nations, and in particular Australia. Our guest speakers will be, Imam Afroz Ali and Shaykh Salem Naja; both the speakers are prominent members of the Australian Muslim community and are active in the area of advocating for the rights of refugees and displaced persons. TIME: 7:00 pm, Saturday 14th May VENUE: Al-Ghazzali Centre 299 Belmore Road, Riverwood NSW 2210 Everyone is welcome. All our events at Al-Ghazzali Centre are FREE.

Tribute to a Pioneer: Sam De Francesco

Registration is essential. Please register at http://bit.ly/agctribute Welcome Back to the Al-Ghazzali Centre! The main vision of Al-Ghazzali Centre from it's inception since 2001 was to build an institution of people with transformative benefit, by nurturing prophetic character into the servants of the Merciful. The very foundations of Al-Ghazzali Centre was established by people who lived this vision themselves. Sayyidi Sam De Francesco was one of these people.

It is programs such as these, and people such as sayyidi Sam that nurtured and gave life to the Al-Ghazzali Centre. Although sayyidi Sam has left this world and returned to his Lord, his spirit of servitude to God, The Exalted, through serving creation will continue to guide us in our journey to our own final return. The fruits of the seeds that he sowed as a companion of Imam Afroz Ali in the early days of Al-Ghazzali Centre will continue to benefit humanity until the end of time, to nurture an institution of people of transformative benefit to the ends of earth Please join us in a night of Remembrance, Reflections from those who knew him, and to collectively recite Yasin and Du’a for him, followed by dinner.

Revival of Classics: Blemishes of the Soul and Its Cures

Continues from 2015...... What is Revival of Classics? The sciences of Islam contain gems of knowledge for the benefit of humanity, and are contained in the classical literature of various genre. One of the most important genre of knowledge, and the multitude of texts that preserve it, is spiritual knowledge which teaches the path to altruistic and virtuous living, transcendent of materialistic and self-centered lifestyle. CLASSICS are a weekly Study Circle to learn the pearls of wisdom, over a short 10-12 weeks for each such text. Curent Text of Study - Blemishes of the Soul & Its Cures The current text taught by Imam Afroz Ali is Abu ʿAbd al-Rahmān al-Sulamī’s ʿUyūb al-Nafs wa Adwiyātuhā (Blemishes of the Soul and Its Cures). Imam Sulami was born in Nishapur and preceded Imam Ghazzali by some 30 years. They both studied in Nishapur as well, and Imam Ghazzali often quotes the counsel and content of Imam Sulami . Imam Sulami was a Shafi’i jurist as well, and nurtured students like Imam Bayhaqi and Imam Qushayri. Imams Subj, Abu Nu’aym and Baghdadi all provide detailed endorsement of Imam Sulami’s scholarship in the sciences of Fiqh, Hadith and Tasawwuf. The current text is one of the earliest yet concise text on the knowledge of the human ego that causes the individual to diverge from the path of virtue. From the diseases of the soul, of procrastination, undeserved expectations, self-aggrandisement, greed and discontent, Imam Sulami in this text provides explanation of how to identify them in our selves, but also how to cure ourselves (and also prevent them from affecting us in the first place) from such infamy. Over 12 weeks, Imam Afroz Ali will take the students on a journey to know themselves better; to identify our pitfalls and how to heal ourselves from such falls and reorient ourselves on the path to virtue.

Orientation to the Divine

Science of Astronomy & Fiqh of Prayer Times and Direction Taught by Imam Afroz Ali “1 out of 3 times, digital compasses on a smartphone fails to provide reasonably accurate direction, which more and more Muslims rely on to determine the direction of prayer.” Join us us over two weekends, to learn about the natural signs created by The Divine which aids us to orient ourselves to Him, God The Almighty The Wise. Knowing the direction and times of prayer is a personal obligation. This includes one’s informed ability to know them during travel when one is at a location not familiar to them. It is the position of the sun which establishes the arrival of each of the five prayer times. Furthermore, The Compassionate God has positioned the sun, the moon and the stars such that they represent Divinely ordained times. This practical workshop will empower you with the requisite knowledge to determine the direction and times of any of the five prayers with confidence and accuracy without the need for equipment which can often fail Registration is essential.

SeekersCircle: The Complete Counsel - Understanding the Hadith: “Religion is Sincere Concern”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said that “Religion is sincere concern.” (al-dinu’n nasiha). In just two words, he summarized the reality and essence of religion—and then gave its expression when asked, “To whom?” by saying, “To Allah; to His Book; to His Messenger; to the leaders of Muslims; and for the common person.” [Tirmidhi] Shaykh Faraz explains this hadith on the reality of religion using the brilliant work of Imam Zarruq, “The Sufficient Counsel” (al-Nasiha al-Kafiya), as well as other classical works from across the Islamic sciences.

Advancing Australia Fair: Standing Together, United for Peace

SeekersConversation: Advancing Australia Fair Standing Together, United for Peace Imam Afroz Ali, Father Rod Bower Anglican Parish of Gosford and Mr. Greg Johns (SGI) Register: http://seekershub.org/sydney/event/advancing_australia/ SeekersConversation evenings involve open, safe, courteous and honest discussions on issues affecting the global community. The Sydney siege was a tragic day for all Australians. We came face to face with a heinous crime with attempts to politicise it as a religiously motivated crime, associated with the politically loaded term, terrorism. It was also a time when we as Australians were forced to question our sense of peace, justice, unity and compassion, and reflect on our responsibility to advance Australia fair. What resulted was a tremendous response of a united co-existence, and a rejection of divisive sentiments. In the spirit of such togetherness and our common love for this safe and great nation, we invite you to participate in this inter-spiritual event – including Buddhist, Christian and Muslim reflections – and share lessons and counsel on peace, justice and a safe Australia for all.

SeekersConversation: Da'esh & The State of Islam

SeekersConversation evenings involve open, safe, courteous and honest discussions on issues affecting the global Muslim community. The politics of war in Syria and in Iraq has asserted an unacceptable narrative about what Islam calls to of its adherents as Muslims. Led by DAESH (poorly translated and incorrectly referred to as ISIS), the narrative falsely places Islam as a religion of war and hatred, whereas the truth affirms Islam as a Path of and to Peace and Mercy. This SeekersConversation discusses the major scholarly ‘Letter To Baghdadi’, which provides the most comprehensive refutation against the claims and conduct of DAESH. In addition this SeekersConversation provides a clear explanation and counsel that the Muslim’s firm adherence to and advocacy of peace, mercy and the rule of law are what define one’s state of Islam, not the hatred, vengeance and love for the politics of war to establish a state of Islam. http://seekershub.org/sydney/event/islamicstate/

We will explore the Messenger’s ﷺ life in terms of the Makkan and Madinan periods. We hope to inspire and increase the love for the Messenger in our hearts. The Secret of Madinah was that an entire city of people collectively fell in love with the Prophet ﷺ. As they fell deeper and deeper in love, they were thoroughly transformed, leaving their old shells behind, and evolving into incredible giants of our history. He ﷺ truly was the moon, so perfectly reflecting God's light to the wandering servants, lost in a deep, penetrating Darkness and bringing them into a new, radiant, and blissful reality. http://timeanddate.com/s/2htv

Walking the Way of Light

*** Live Class starts January 25th, 2014 at Islamic Information and Dawah Centre, Toronto *** Global delayed telecast starts from 26th January, 2014. Register for LIVE class (Toronto): http://seekershub.org/class/walking-the-way-of-light/ Sydney Class: http://seekershub.org/sydney/event/walking-the-way-of-light/ The key to successful seeking of knowledge is having clarity of purpose, and soundness of pursuit. Clear purpose is seeking Allah Most High through one’s knowledge and through acting upon that knowledge. Soundness of pursuit is through upholding proper manners (adab) in seeking knowledge. One of the most comprehensive and blessed sources for the proper manners of seeking knowledge is the Book of Knowledge from Imam Bukhari’s Sahih, the most authoritative and authentic collection of Prophetic narrations (hadith) ever compiled. In ten lessons, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will explain key principles of seeking knowledge from the “comprehensive speech” of the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him & his folk).

On Knowing Yourself to Know God

Live from 22nd February, 2013 Global telecast begins 1st March, 2013 Please see link for circles in your area: http://seekersguidance.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/SeekersCircles-Locations-and-Contact-Information.pdf Of the many of Imam Ghazzali’s masterpieces, one of them, Alchemy of Happiness, is amongst the most crucial of his works. In his introductory chapter, he states, “Know that the key to the knowledge of God, may He be Exalted and Glorified, is knowledge of oneself, for it has been said, ‘He who knows himself knows is Lord.’ And it is for this reason The Creator Most High revealed, ‘We shall show them signs on the horizons and within themselves, so that it will become evidently clear to them the Truth.” You are closest to yourself, and how are we to know anything else if we do not know ourselves: what faculties exist in ourselves and how they function from which manifests our outward behaviour? We are more than a body of flesh with physical eyes, ears and limbs. We have an origin and we have a journey beyond here. The knowledge about these matters is crucial to be able to firstly live a full life, and secondly with a clear and true purpose which does not deceive you. This weekly study circle covers the chapter “On Knowing Oneself and God” of the classic work "Alchemy of Happiness", divided into ten lessons. SeekersCircles are free telecast courses provided to registered study-circles across the world.

The Prophetic Tradition warns us against such a destructive path, and informs us to be in this world but as a stranger, a wayfarer transiting through it. Four esteemed Teachers are lined up for this SeekersRetreat to revive our spirit, guide our orientation and awaken us to the reality of the Path that leads to true happiness: 1. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani (SeekersHub Toronto) 2. Shaykh Afeefuddin al-Jailani (Darul Jailani, Malaysia) 3. Shaykh Yahya Rhodus (SeekersHub Online) 4. Imam Afroz Ali (SeekersHub Sydney) The entire curriculum will be based on the authoritative classical texts on the subject authored by some of the most distinguished Classical Scholars like Imam Ghazzali. The program will not only cover content from the text, but provide clear practical advice on how to implement them in order to transform your lives in which the ultimate concern is your Almighty Lord. To assist in experiencing an awakening of the heart to the ultimate concern, and to reflect on the teachings surrounded by the beauty of nature, SeekersRetreat 2013 be honoured by the participation of the Singapore Haqqani Ensemble.

FREE Live Course - Al-Adhkar of Imam Nawawi

Al-Adhkar of Imam Nawawi With Shaykh Omar Qureshi To join this FREE class visit http://seekersguidance.org/courses/SHLIV150 (This course is FREE due to Knowledge Without Barriers - http://www.seekersguidance.org/donate) This course focuses on the nature of remembrance (dhikr) in the life of a Muslim. Muslim scholars have written extensively on the nature of remembrance and supplications generating a rich genre of literature beginning with Qadi Abu Yusuf (d. 182 A.H.) and continuing up to our times. The most notable and widely accepted book in this genre of literature is Imam Nawawi’s (Allah be pleased with him) Kitab al-Adhkar. We will, by the grace of Allah the Exalted, be reading this book in its entirety. Imam Nawawi intended this book for the layman and the scholar. With over three thousand prophetic traditions (ahadith), the Kitab al-Adhkar provides for us a wealth of legal rulings, principles of the spiritual path and proprieties that relate to remembrance and supplications. Remembrance of Allah the Exalted often presents one with practical difficulties in the life of a Muslim due to many misconceptions regarding many prophetic traditions and legal issues. Kitab al-Adhkar facilitates establishing the remembrance of Allah the Exalted in the life of a Muslim by the sound legal rulings and principles it provides. During the live classes, the text will be read in Arabic with little translation provided. It is geared towards those students who are able to access the Arabic. Assistance with understanding the text will be provided in class, although the focus will be on the various proprieties and legal rulings discussed in the text. Though knowing Arabic will bring about the most benefit in the class, those who do not know Arabic will benefit from the class discussions on the issues raised in the readings.

xPresso - Dirt! The Movie.

A look at man's relationship with Dirt. Dirt and humans couldn't be closer. We are made of the same stuff. Dirt has given us food, shelter, fuel, medicine, ceramics, flowers, cosmetics and colour - everything needed for our survival. For most of the last ten thousand years we humans understood our intimate bond with dirt and the rest of nature. We took care of the soils that took care of us. But, over time, we lost that connection. Our species became greedy and careless. Inspired by the book Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth by William Bryant Logan, the film explores the relationship between humans and soil, including its necessity for human life and impacts by society. The movie was an official nominee for the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and won several other awards. Viewing will be followed by an open forum and discussion for attendees, as well as a Q&A with Imam Afroz Ali.

NEW LIVE COURSE: Exploring the Qur'an: Surah Yasin Explained, Sh Faraz Rabbani, Fridays 7:30pm EST

Exploring The Qur'an - Surah Yasin Explained The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) described Surat Yasin as the heart of the Qur’an, because it contains the three essential themes of the Qur’an: (1) a call to Divine Oneness; (2) a consciousness of our duty before God, and the encouragement to turn to Him; and (3) awareness of the reality of death, resurrection, and the afterlife. Please register here http://seekersguidance.org/courses/SHLIV205 to receive all class updates, resources and access to lesson recordings each week. Surat Yasin, which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) encouraged us to recite regularly and reflect upon, gives us reminders of the most important questions of life: why am I here? where I am headed? what should I be doing in life? … and gives us the most beautiful and comprehensive of answers. By looking at the key themes and verse-by-verse study of this powerful chapter of the Qur’an, Shaykh Faraz will help us understand how to bring Surat Yasin "into" one's heart through encouraging its: [a] recitation; [b] memorization; [c] reflection; and [d] realization. Over the ten classes, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will take the students through the entire chapter, providing commentary on the meanings, spiritual context and numerous everyday lessons that can be derived from each verse. These classes are suitable for all students. This live class is held each week on Fridays at 7:30pm EST Toronto, New York | 4:30pm PST | 12:30am UK | 2:30am Makkah | 9:30am (Saturday) Sydney.

Algester Mosque joins '1 Billion Salawat' Day

Algester Mosque will be hosting a group event for ’1 Billion Global Salawat Day‘ When: Sunday, Nov. 4th, 2012 at 7:30pm. Where: Algester Mosque We will begin the evening with collective salutations upon the Prophet (peace be upon him). We will pledge as a group at www.1BillionSalawat.com More about the event from Imam Zaid: Whereas, the sanctity of Islam and Muslims is being violated in myriad ways - innocents are being killed, the social fabric of many Muslim societies is being torn asunder, and the honorable life and legacy of our Prophet, Muhammad, peace upon him, is being assailed in unprecedented and increasingly egregious ways; whereas, collectively, these outrages demonstrate a lack of mercy, compassion and empathy, along with a demeaning of the prophetic legacy; whereas, one of the greatest means we possess to invite the mercy of God into our lives and into our world is the Salawat on the Prophet (peace upon him); we declare Sunday, November 4, 2012, Worldwide Salawat upon Muhammad Day. To commemorate this day, we encourage all Muslims to gather in their mosques, centers and homes for Magrib prayers and then to individually or collectively recite 2,000 Salawats on the Prophet (peace upon him) using the following formula: اللهم صلي على محمد Allahumma Salli ‘Alaa Muhammad (O Allah! Bless Muhammad) …or whatever formula or amount you are comfortable with. We believe that by collectively sending tens of millions, if not billions of Salawats on the Prophet (peace upon him), the silent majority of the world’s Muslims can make an unprecedented appeal in the real theater of power. By so doing, we will, Insha Allah, invite the direct aid of our Lord, bring about a cosmic shift that will affect the balance of worldly power and bring about a divine opening that will bring comfort and healing to the hearts of the believers. Join us in this historic event.

We invite you to this lecture presentation by Imam Afroz Ali, who will explain what it is and why Tasawwuf is at the heart of Islam.

LIVE CLASS w/ Sh Omar Qureshi: al Adhkar of Imam Nawawi

To join this FREE class visit http://seekersguidance.org/courses/SHLIV150 This course focuses on the nature of remembrance (dhikr) in the life of a Muslim. Muslim scholars have written extensively on the nature of remembrance and supplications generating a rich genre of literature beginning with Qadi Abu Yusuf (d. 182 A.H.) and continuing up to our times. The most notable and widely accepted book in this genre of literature is Imam Nawawi’s (Allah be pleased with him) Kitab al-Adhkar. We will, by the grace of Allah the Exalted, be reading this book in its entirety. Imam Nawawi intended this book for the layman and the scholar. With over three thousand prophetic traditions (ahadith), the Kitab al-Adhkar provides for us a wealth of legal rulings, principles of the spiritual path and proprieties that relate to remembrance and supplications. Remembrance of Allah the Exalted often presents one with practical difficulties in the life of a Muslim due to many misconceptions regarding many prophetic traditions and legal issues. Kitab al-Adhkar facilitates establishing the remembrance of Allah the Exalted in the life of a Muslim by the sound legal rulings and principles it provides. During the live classes, the text will be read in Arabic with little translation provided. It is geared towards those students who are able to access the Arabic. Assistance with understanding the text will be provided in class, although the focus will be on the various proprieties and legal rulings discussed in the text. Though knowing Arabic will bring about the most benefit in the class, those who do not know Arabic will benefit from the class discussions on the issues raised in the readings.

History of Islamic Jurisprudence: Understanding Madhab - Melbourne

A full-day seminar on The Importance of Madhab by Imam Afroz Ali Today, the four Schools of Islamic Law that form the basis of Islamic Jurisprudence is less and less understood, and is under uninformed criticism.

This full-day seminar provides full explanation why the Madhab is an integral part of understanding Islamic Law as well as to properly practise it. By understanding the history of the development of Islamic Jurisprudence from the time of the Prophet and into the period of the Successors, the important place of the Madhab becomes very clear Cost: FREE, by donation.

XpressO Melbourne - The Alchemist of Happiness

Join us for the screening of a documentary on the life of Imam Al-Ghazzali, with commentary and discussion led by Imam Afroz Ali. Born in 1058 in Tus, Khorasan, in present-day Iran, Abu Hamid Al-Ghazzali was one of the most original thinkers the world has known. Besides being a major influence in the Muslim world, the West has also felt his effect. He influenced major figures of medieval philosophy such as Thomas Aquinas and Moses Maimonides, who shaped the philosophy of the Latin West. As the author of some 250 books on topics ranging from theology and ethics to metaphysics and philosophy, Al-Ghazzali came to be known as ‘Proof of Islam’. For almost a thousand years he has served as an inspiration for spiritual seekers everywhere as he was someone, like the Buddha, willing to give up everything: wealth, position, family and comfort in order to search for Truth.

Islamophobia Webinar - A Prophetic Response in the Midst of Fear

**New date - July 23, 2011** Please note the time is 7PM EDT / 4PM PST Last year, our normal Ramadan activities were interrupted by a sharp rise in Islamophobia, riddled with threats to burn the Qur’an and impassioned disagreements over the opening of several Islamic centers. With the next election cycle coming up and new “Anti-Shari’ah” laws on many state ballots--in addition to the 10th anniversary of 9/11--many politicians, media personnel and Muslim activists are anticipating much the same, if not worse, for the Muslim community this year. Rather than waiting for things to erupt, we would like to make a preemptive positive impact. By inviting Muslim scholars and leaders to share practical advice with our community now, we hope to be better prepared to deal with what may lay ahead. Whether or not you are a member of an Islamic center, involved in the MSA, an activist, or simply a Muslim man, or Muslim woman: Join us Saturday, June 25th, at 7pm EST for this important webinar which will provide ways for us all to respond to Islamophobia in our communities.

Admission is FREE Register now at www.seekersguidance.org/balance If any of the following below, sounds like you, then you cannot miss this seminar: -I am a student at university, i sometimes have exams or class during the time of Salah. Its hard to leave my exam to go pray. I need to find a way to be able to do both, get an A in my classes as well as perform my salah on time. -I am in my forties, I work almost 50-60 hours a week, I barely have anytime to spend on my family let alone attend masjid halaqas, or even prayer such as Jummah prayer. -I am a teacher, working to support my family. I work as full time, sometimes staying late, and then bringing work home. I also have kids that need taking care of. I have no time during the week to devote to spirituality. -I am pursuing my career as a Doctor. Getting into med school is tough, I have 6 classes during the week, assignments, tests, exams and I also volunteer at the local hospital. I want to dedicate my life to serving God as well, but I just cant seem to find any time in my schedule to do so. -We work 9-5 everyday, our young kids go to daycare. By the time we get home, we are both so tired that we usually just order take out from time to time, and rest as much as we can. Our kids usually attend after school programs, or are just glued to the tv, we need them that way in order to get some rest at home from a tiring day from work. -I am at my business 13-14 hours a day. I pray 5 times, but I dont feel my Salah being as complete or valid as I think it is. I am constantly engaged in thinking about my business instead of my Lord, when I'm in salah. With such a hectic lifestyle, I cannot concentrate on my Salah.

Seeking Knowledge: A Practical Guide For Sisters, Sh Faraz, CA

Studying sacred knowledge is incumbent upon every Muslim, man AND woman. A woman naturally plays many roles in her life. A woman can be a daughter, a mother, a sister, a friend, and much more. In the hub-bub of fulfilling these roles, it becomes difficult for a woman to fulfill the role she plays a student of sacred knowledge. Trying to find a balance between these roles and simultaneously studying the deen is no easy task. In order to shed light on the matter, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be holding a special sisters session for all of those mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, and friends who have an urge to study sacred knowledge while maintaining their responsibilities in their homes and work in a sustainable manner. Who: Mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters (SISTERS ONLY) What: Seeking Knowledge: A Practical Guide For Sisters with Shaykh Faraz Rabbani When: Saturday April 16th, 1-3pm Where: Northstar School, 725 Whipple Road, Union City, CA Why: Find out how to learn the sacred Islamic sciences, in-depth, as a Muslim sister living today in America Unfortunately, babysitting is not available for this event, so please leave the little ones at home!
