Just when you thought we were entering the quiet part of the year, all THIS happens… =)
It can seem unfathomable when we see insane actions like the horrifying terror ravaged upon Paris recently, but the perpetrators were Muslim, and they were trying to act in the name of Islam, and whether we like it or not, we have to try and purify our ranks from such a cancer which attempts to kill and destroy everything that comes in its path.
And that is the reason we launched The J Word.
Since 2006, using the J Word’s specially dedicated portal with specific material from our leading instructors, we have been at the forefront of educating thousands of Muslims on what the Islamic faith actually teaches, as opposed to what our adversaries in the shape of ISIS, AlQaeda, Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and any other extremist terrorist movement would have you believe.
Take a moment to peruse the site and empower yourself to reclaim your religion from the extremists, using the authentic sources of Islam and its senior scholars. Whether your first time or your tenth time using this site, please continue to share with your friends and family to not only educate them, but also to hopefully spread the true word high and wide in wider circles so that anyone in two minds about this perversion, will hopefully see the Light and dedicate themselves to true Islamic learning, teaching and practice, in the service of their community and not in war with it.
The great weekend is finally here! The Bay Area on Saturday 10th and Seattle on Sunday 11th will be hosting our Ilmfest Conference to an eager crowd wanting to share in the barakah of our favourite gathering!
We know that one of the most common things we hear from folks around the world is just how much they regret missing out on the LIVE EXPERIENCE of an Ilmfest when it’s held in a faraway city.
But this year, it all changes!
For the first time ever, we will be LIVE STREAMING Seattle’s Ilmfest on Sunday 11th January for a period of 24 hours only covering every session for the price of only $20 allowing your whole family to benefit! But be warned, this will be limited to only 500 spots so be quick!
Visit HERE to book up and reserve your “front row” seat NOW.
With Ilmfest 2015 being blessed with the attendance this year of Sh Yasir Qadhi, Sh Waleed Basyouni, Sh Yaser Birjas, Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed, Sh Kamal El-Mekki, Sh Saad Tasleem, Sh AbdulBary Yahya, Sh Mohammed Faqih, Dr Farhan AbdulAzeez and Ammar Alshukry then can you really afford to miss this incredible opportunity right in your living room?
Don’t miss out twice on what is our premier one-day event. Get your spot now.
Keep up to date with the latest #Ilmsummit LIVE blog HERE on our Facebook page. Here’s Boonaa’s Day Three Vlog as well:
The 7th Ilmsummit, the biggest in our history, has got off to an amazing start by the mercy and grace of Allah ‘azza wa jall.
We are delighted to announce that for the first time, we will be having a LIVE BLOG sharing gems, fawa’id and other interesting moments along with photos and video direct from Reading, UK. It will be updated multiple times a day and it can be followed HERE on our Facebook page, as well as our Twitter feed, so make sure you don’t miss out.
In another great addition, brother Boonaa Mohammed is recording a vlog – a daily video blog – live from Ilmsummit sharing his own unique perspective as a student coming from abroad, which has already been getting excellent feedback due to it showing the “other” side to the realities behind such a gathering, the students and in particular, the teachers.
If you’re going to get sold out as it was last week before we organised extra spaces, then the only way to go one better is to sell out again!
By the grace of Allah, we have completed our (re-opened) intake for Ilmsummit 2014 and this is now the end of registration for this year. We apologise to anyone on the waiting list or anyone else who missed out this time, and we will try our best to increase spaces for next time in sha Allah.
Also, stay tuned for an exciting announcement very soon after Ilmsummit 2014. No promises but we’re looking into it now…
We ask Allah ‘azza wa jall to bless our retreat, to accept this effort from all the students and organisers, and to increase all the attendees in beneficial knowledge, ameen!
With only a few weeks to go, the excitement for our premier one-day conference is building: ILMFEST is back and not a second too soon!
