The curriculum has been carefully thought out through consultation with experienced scholars. It covers topics ranging from Islamic creed, law, spirituality, and much more! We aim to instill certainty and love for Islam in the hearts.
In this course, Imam Yama Niazi will provide our younger generation with essential knowledge concerning the spiritual maladies of the heart and soul. This exciting course will provide our youth with a detailed outline of the various causes and remedies of the spiritual diseases that afflict the internal dimensions of human beings. Additionally, this course will serve as a road map in achieving a sound and purified heart.
We are so eager to learn and teach our loved ones prayer (salah) and the proper manner in which one makes wudu; in order to purify our limbs before our Master. It's been said, “I’m amazed at the one who washes his/her limbs multiple times a day and doesn’t purify their heart.”
The heart is in greater need of purification. When corrupt, the entire body becomes corrupt. But one might ask, “What makes the heart sick, what are its diseases?”
Our beloved Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said in a hadith, “Allah does not send down any disease, but He also sends down the cure for it.”
Enrol in this course to learn about these sicknesses of the heart, their cures, and why diseases such as envy are bad for both for your worldly life (dunya) and your next life (akhirah).
May Allah grant us pure, clean hearts
