Seminar: Understanding differences of opinion in Islam with Ustadh Alomgir Ali

Have you ever asked yourself one of the following questions?

  • Since we Muslims all believe in the message of the final Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, why are there so many different schools of thought?
  • How is it possible that teachings from this one source can spawn multiple opinions?
  • Why do scholars seem to differ so often?
  • Are the shaikhs belonging to the school of thought that I follow REALLY better than other scholars?

Differences of Opinion_TBC_web

The topic of the Aims of Islamic Law can sometimes be tricky, and can lead people to arrive at incorrect conclusions when not understood properly.

In this course therefore the following subjects were elaborated:

where these aims come from and how they are derived

the types of the aims of Islamic Law

the different categories and levels of maqasid

how to resolve conflicts between the different aims

the relationship between maqasid and legal evidences

examples of the abuse of maqasid

… and much more!

Seminar: Tawheed – Islamic Monotheism

Alhumdulillah, this course was well attended with approximately 65 attendees spending the day with us.

Before a Muslim learns about the intricate matters of Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh), or the science of authenticating of hadith, or even learning the Arabic grammar, there is a far more important topic to understand – a topic that defines what a Muslim is.
Sh. Fraz Farhat did a great job explaining some of the fundamentals of Tawheed and we hope to invite him back later to build on what he taught us at this seminar.

Amongst the topics presented at this seminar were:

  • Definitions of Aqeedah and Tawheed
  • Shirk – its meaning and dangers
  • Categories of Shirk
  • Allah’s Lordship (Tawheed Ruboobiyah)
  • Allah’s Right of worship (Tawheed al-Uluhiyyah)
  • Allah’s Names and Attributes (Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Sifaat)
  • The meaning and the excellence of the Shahadah

About the speaker

Sh. Fraz Farhat graduated in Engineering from the University of Leeds. In 2000, he graduated from the University of Medina from the faculty of Islamic Law.
As well as a translator of Arabic works, he is a guest on the popular TV show Islam Q&A, and also occasionally teaches for AlKauthar Institute in the UK.
