[Ilminar] The Ka'abah: It's history, virtues and etiquette of visitation

[IlmSummit UK 2013] Challenges faced within Da'wah

Last week, AlMaghrib Institute released one of the most anticipated course topics yet! The IlmSummit topic release went down as a treat ma sha Allah, with many eager students ready & excited to attend!

This week, Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda has recorded a quick message, explaining why Surah Fussilat is one of the Quran’s most powerful Surahs and how the Surah enables us to deal with the many challenges we come across when giving Dawah as a minority.

Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda (Qalam Institute) has completed his B.A & M.A in the Arabic language and has taught Arabic at the University of Texas.

One his most unique teaching quality is his ability to breakdown the complexities of the Arabic language into a simpler form, enabling his students to pick up the true meaning behind the words.

“Jazak Allahu Khair ya Shaykh Abdul Nasir for helping us to strengthen our salaat and khushoo. It really opened my eyes to the beauty and majesty of the Quran and the language it was written in….There were some words or phrases that I thought I was already familiar with, but the Shaykh always delved into its deeper meaning, making it even more significant.” ~ Anonymous Student
