Malaysia, here we come!

AlMaghrib. MALAYSIA! It’s official! AlMaghrib in MALAYSIA has begun!

AlMaghrib has a vast international student audience, and it brings me great honor to unite my brothers and sisters in the West, with my brothers and sisters in the Far East.
Qabeelat Ihsaan is the student tribe name they selected.

Here’s a little bit about the AlMaghrib team in Malaysia:

1. When I was first starting AlMaghrib, a group of 8-12 Malaysian sisters would always support AlMaghrib USA by driving 2-3 hours to attend from the universities they were studying at. That was back in 2002, and now many years later, they have moved back to Malaysia and have always kept in their heart that they wanted to bring AlMaghrib to Malaysia. And alhamdulillah, their dream and ours has come true!

2. Malaysia is the first Muslim majority country that AlMaghrib will be teaching! And the first in Asia! It’s a different frontier than what we are used to in the West, but in sha Allah, the lessons learned from Malaysia may be later passed on to AlMaghrib in other Muslim countries. Again, ma sha Allah, Malaysia is a pioneer in this regard.

3. AlMaghrib Malaysia is officially registered with the Company Commission of Malaysia.

4. Interestingly, when a new city opens, they might have one or two on the team who have been to an AlMaghrib seminar. Yet, on our Malaysian team, we have TWELVE brothers and sisters who have attended AlMaghrib, both in the USA and the UK. (But none from Canada, yet :) . Soon in sha Allah.)

5. AlMaghrib instructor, Sh.Waleed Abdulhakeem, traveled to Malaysia in August 2010 and spent considerable time with the AlMaghrib team advising them.

6. The first seminar in Asia, in Malaysia, is going to be Sh.Riad’s “A Heart Serene” *ahem, my recommendation*.

Allah joined our hearts with this great Deen of Islam. And it is so sweet to be alive to see the day when AlMaghrib makes a bridge for the Muslims between West and Far East!  So far we’ve joined North America with the UK, and now alhamdulillah here we go joining Malaysia to North America/UK.

Hey, for everyone in the West thinking of a vacation: why not go and vacation in Malaysia while taking an AlMaghrib seminar!

Best of success to Malaysia, and in sha Allah all the instructors and I are looking forward to meeting you.

– Muhammad Alshareef
President, AlMaghrib Institute

    Assalamu alaikum sisters & brothers in Malaysia,
    Welcome to AlMaghrib family. May Allah Ta’ala bless you all & increase your beneficial knowledge.
    Do not forget to take your parents with you for the seminars, that is how I have become an Almaghrib addict after my daughter took me along.
    SubhanAllah it is a beautiful way of learning, even the exams are fun.
    We might come for a seminar & have a vacation there inshaAllah, like the shaykh says.

    Masha Allah this is amazing news! Qabeelat Ihsaan has a special place in our hearts, because we launched our efforts around the same time as them (even though they’ve been working on their efforts for so much longer!!)…and we will grow together insha Allah!

    A Heart Serene??? What an amazing way to start an amazing journey! May Allah put barakah in their efforts and accept from all their hard work!

    Ahlan wa Sahlan! Glad tidings to the seekers of knowledge! May they be protected beneath the wings of the angels by the Mercy of Allāh ‘azza wajall!

    Subhan’Allah! this is SUCH amazing news – & Shaykh you couldnt have picked a better seminar to kick it all off for our Brothers and Sisters in Malaysia!

    May Allah bless us with much more knowledge and the sustenance to tread on the right path insha’Allah!!


  17. Zubair Usman says:

    I’m so thrilled for you guys! Masha’allah tabarakallah. 1-2-3 YOU ROCK! You’ll be hearing a lot more of that at your first seminar :-)

  18. Masha’Allah, this is great news! I’ve always seen “Bring AlMaghrib to Malaysia” across the Forums, Facebook, and blogosphere, and am now happy that their dream and vision has come true. May Allah grant you much success! Ameen.

  19. Sophia (Formerly in Tayybah) says:

  21. Abdulrahman Addy says:

    AllaahuAkbar, AllaahuAkbar, AllaahuAkbar! May Allaah makes it easy for the Muslims all over.

  22. UmmSakinah says:


    Allahu Akbar!!!!! I’m so elated to be reading this again after reading the very same thing in my inbox. Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed us as a family with the opportunity to attend one Almaghrib volunteer meeting while we were in Malaysia that only really came about as a result of an unexpected delay in returning to the US, walhamdulillah, and I have to say I’m very impressed with the organization of the Qabeelah in Malaysia. Great job guys! And please keep me updated even though I’m far away.

    Mubaarak! May Allah reward, bless, and make this a means of acquiring more blessing for the Muslims in Malaysia. Ameen!

    Next time we go back inshaallah, I’ll hv something else to look forward to inshaallah!

  23. Masha Allah .. Tabarak Allah .. This is amazing news .. May Allah(swt) grant the greatest success to our brothers and sisters in Malaysia and reward them for all their hard work. Would love to bring my family there for a vacation in Kaula Lampur and experience a class at Banu Ihsaan. I love the city of Kaula Lampur. It has an amazing uniqueness to it.

  24. ali says:

    may ALLAH help you all and put you all at the highest rank of Jannah. May ALLAH swt make you successful in this world as well.


  25. Ayan says:

    Assalamu alaikum Qabeelat Ihsan

    Alhamdulillah!! What amazing news :) May Allah (SWT) bless each and every person involved in bringing AlMaghrib to Malaysia. Subhanallah where is next ?

    Also the Heart Serene is the perfect class to begin with brothers and sisters reading this, words cannot even explain how awesome it was. I don’t remember how many times I cried out fear & love for Allah, or laughed until I started crying.

    It was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Spending two weekends with the works of Ibn Qayyim, Shaykh Riad, and a packed classroom has done wonders for me. I wish every Muslim in the world could have experienced it, as well. This class changes you from the inside out starting with the most important question “Do you LOVE Allah(SWT) and his messenger (SAW)”

    InshaAllah one day I can take a class with you. :)

  26. Shaybah(San Diego) says:

    This is a great blessing at the same time may Allah continue to bless your efforts.

  27. Zakia Usmani says:

    Masha Allah that’s great news. May Allah grant huge success to AlMaghrib team in Malaysia and may Allah continue to bless your efforts. ameen

  28. Nasreen Khan says:

    Assalaamu Alaikum Qabeelaat Ihsan,

    Alhamdulillah! This is GREAT news. Those of you who have not attended Al-Maghrib seminars, you will LOVE them. It is like a “money-back-guarantee” where you are NEVER disappointed or dissatisfied with the seminars. You get to earn a WEALTH of knowledge from the EXCELLENT instructors, plus you become one BIG family. Let us hope and pray that this first step in Asia becomes the stepping stone for the whole of Asia. Ameen. May Allah SWT Bless your Qabeelat, and reward Al-Maghrib for its efforts in spreading His Deen. Ameen.

  29. Faika says:

    Since my husband and I had a vacation in Malaysia last year, we’ve always dreamed of returning. Subhanallah, our duas are answered.
    QIhsaan here we come! We will now return but instead to attend an AlMaghrib course, Inshallah. You are the best!

  30. Bara says:

    Masha Allah–may Allah put His blessings in Al-Maghrib Malaysia and make it a source of guidance and light for our brothers and sisters there, Ameen!

  31. yousufsyed says:

    Masha Allah, a warm welcome to our brothers and sisters in Malaysia.

  32. Owais says:

    Alhamdulillahi rabbil alameen. I am delighted to hear this news. A grand welcome to all into the family of AlMaghrib. And subhanAllah what a chance you have – Attending “The Heart Serene” with Sheik Riaz. GUYS, PLS DO NOT MISS IT. I GUARANTEE THAT, INSHAALLAH, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIVES FOR GOOD. IT IS MY REQUEST TO YOU TO TAKE SOME TIME OUT FOR THIS COURSE. NOT JUST FOR THE COURSE BUT ALSO FOR THE MAN WHO WILL TEACH IT, INSHAALLAH. SHEIK RIAZ QURZOUZI.

    Mashallah this is an excellent opportunity for Muslims in Malaysia to take these excellent seminars. I have been to one myself and I have to say hands down that it was the best weekend I have had in a very long time Alhumdulillah. You learn so much and the environment is really nice. Calm and relaxing. If you have the opportunity you should 100% go and don’t let this opportunity go.

  53. Zahra says:

    Great news masha’ Allah!

  54. thanveer says:

    its so amazing reading all these comments.mashaAllah. we are with u ihsaan. go go go! XD

  55. Zara says:

    AssalamuAlaikum, I remember taking the early classes with Muhammad AlShareef in NJ. These Malaysian sisters were always so dedicated to the classes and were so kind. When they graduated college and were returning back to Malaysia one by one, it was a very teary day for the sisters of Almaghrib during their last seminars. Alhumdulilah, it makes me very happy that they have not forgotten us and are doing their very best to make Almaghrib part of their country just as much as we here pride ourselves with.

  56. zulfa says:
