Students will be introduced to core ideas from the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah, that will help them live a balanced life based on ageless principles that protect their faith from arbitrary and extremist distortions, whilst allowing the religious tradition the capacity of facing up to the challenges and demands of modern life.
40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi [Hadith]
Tafsir [Qur’an Exegesis]
Signs of the End of Time [Ashraat-us-Sa’ah]
40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi
The Al-Arbaeen An-Nawawi (40 hadith of Imam Nawawi), an unparalleled compilation of prophetic sayings by one of the most widely accepted scholars in the history of Islam. This is an excellent opportunity to study and reflect over a timeless collection of Prophetic sayings containing the essentials of faith, worship and spirituality.
These comprehensive prophetic sayings contain key principles of our religion–showing how to turn to Allah, and uphold excellence, beauty, virtue, and mercy that is the essence of the teachings of the Prophet ﷺ.
The Qur’an remains the fundamental basis of the Shari’ah in all its paradigms. It is the source to all branches of the Shari’ah and is the determining factor in all aspects of our religion, whether it is social, juridical or economical. Every branch of Shari'ah has its own unique classification and source code and likewise, Tafsir is the source code of the Qur’an.
In this module we will undertake a brief study of the commentaries of the short chapters of the 30th part, summarized from classical Tafsir works. This will present you with an opportunity to form a connection with the Holy Book of Allah, the Majestic Qur’an, and also provide a wonderful opportunity in bringing more meaning in to your daily prayers.
The heart is the most crucial part of the body and is directly connected to one's soul. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Qur’an speaking about the Day of Judgement, “a day in which neither wealth nor children shall be of any benefit [to anyone], except one who comes to God with a sound heart.” (QURAN: 26:88-89).
This module is a must for every Muslim desiring to meet their lord with a sound heart free of blemishes. During the module we will look at some of the most destructive sins of the heart like miserliness, wantonness, hatred, envy, love of the world and many more, and explore some of the ways to purify it.
Signs of the End of Time
The signs of the hour are some of the most fascinating and interesting issues in Islamic theology. They have been mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah. The Prophet ﷺ was the most knowledgeable of all humans in this science and imparted this knowledge onto his companions in a very detailed and descriptive manner. The topic is usually divided into the minor and major signs and in this module we will cover each area in much more detail and reflect.
