Recently an AlMaghrib Institute instructor posted some controversial jokes on his personal social media page.
All AlMaghrib Instructors are highly accomplished individuals, a fact appreciated by our large student body, and are therefore involved with other personal endeavors and activities outside AlMaghrib’s platform. Although the institute does not regulate the instructors’ personal social media presence, AlMaghrib Institute’s policy is that it does not condone or support any form of discrimination based on sex, race or ethnicity that might infringe upon any individual’s rights.
While we understand that the instructor did not intend any harm, AlMaghrib Institute found some personal jokes unacceptable and welcomes the instructor’s public apology to those hurt by the insensitive use of words for satire and sarcasm on sensitive topics. We welcome the instructor’s commendable effort this week remedying the hurt some people felt by directly delivering sincere personal apologies to over 457 members of the public.
As one of the Western world’s premier institutes for the teaching of Islamic Sciences, AlMaghrib Institute has over the last eleven years taught tens of thousands of students. The majority of AlMaghrib Institute students have been women, a fact AlMaghrib Institute has taken pride in deeply.
As previously noted in our March 10th statement, AlMaghrib Institute has a long and broad tradition of supporting women’s empowerment across AlMaghrib’s entire platform and being a voice for women’s progress in our communities.
We ask Allah to guide all of us to the best of manners in dealing with one another. Ameen.
Indeed, congratulations are due to Sweden in being the first country in Europe outside the UK and Eire to have entered the AlMaghrib Family. Välkommen brothers and sisters!
The hard work from the Swedish team has been superb, and it has been rewarded with the live-wire Sh Riad Ourzazi and his smash hit class “A Heart Serene”!
For more information on the class which comes to Stockholm on the weekends of 9-11 May & 17-18 May 2014, please visit the official AlMaghrib Sweden page HERE!

It’s a blockbuster DOUBLE-weekend seminar unlike no other, taught by the unique Sh Riad Ourzazi. To say he’s hyped would be an understatement!
All those in Melbourne and even those looking to travel down for this great class on 25-27 April & 3-4 May 2014, please visit your dedicated seminar page right HERE for more information on what has made this seminar an experience that people still talk about years later.
And with time running down until April , don’t delay and register HERE to guarantee yourself a seat at what promises to be quite the crazy ride into heart purification!
Välkommen & G’day.
In case you were wondering that’s Swedish for Welcome and a friendly welcome in Australian slang. We can be looking forward to the Instructors “dodgy” attempts at the Australian accent….namely Sh Kamal el Mekki!
Alhamdulillah as 2014 is well on its way to becoming super awesome, there are so many exciting things happening this year already with new countries being added to our already global family of AlMaghrib students – Sweden and Australia!
Check out the latest AlMaghrib Video newsletter for the latest information as to what’s going on. We have new Ameers/ahs and a special shout out to Qabeelat AlShams!
To the land of Kangaroos and now AlMaghrib! The Wait is finally Over for/in the Land down Under.
AlMaghrib Institute is proud to announce the launch of AlMaghrib Australia!
For all the Aussies that have patiently waited for this moment, rest assured your prayers were accepted with a good acceptance. We look forward to all the upcoming projects and opportunities to gain knowledge for our brothers and sisters. With open arms and happiness we welcome you to the AlMaghrib family.
(We can only imagine the dodgy Australian accent impersonations that Sh Kamal is going to do!)
Watch the video below, where Sh Muhammad discusses his past hopes & dreams for Australia:
In communities plagued by the increase of zina, murder and increase in drug use, we have opened ourselves to the traps of Shaytaan. Sh Saad Tasleem’s new single weekend seminar “Deception” is a thought provoking and more over a much needed seminar for all of us: an insight and study of Shaytaan. A profile into who he really is? what he promised to do? and how he affects us to this day and we don’t even realise it.
He made a promise to corrupt mankind till the Day of Judgement and it seems he is doing a pretty good job….now the time is to recognise, realise and protect ourselves from Shaytaan and his army. If you want to defeat the enemy – you have to know his strategy. Shaytaan has no loyalties….and our loyalty is to our Lord and Creator Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala.
“Then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left.” [Surat'l-A'raf:17]
Check out the trailer from Sh Saad Tasleem below:

AlMaghrib is proud to have such a talented pool of students and one particular student has taken the pains to really find a solution to make sure that missing Fajr is a thing of the past. One of our students has created a new free app that will make sure you never miss Fajr again!
The app uses a genius method to make sure you are awake. Check out –> www.NeverMissFajr.com and find out how it works
