A Perfect Philippines Party!

The Philippines proved to be the latest country to welcome AlMaghrib to its shores as Zamboanga City hosted their launch seminar “Forever” with the one and only Shaykh Riad Ouarzazi .

In what was an incredibly successful weekend by the mercy and grace of Allah with students enthralled by the realities of the Hereafter in this single-weekend rollercoaster through the description of Heaven and Hell and the associated matters concerning them both.

A big thank you to their wonderful Banu team who will no doubt be looking to increase to Qabeelah status with a new class soon in sha Allah! Check out more photos of what was a great weekend right here.

Ahlan wa Sahlan AlMaghrib Kuwait!

And so it continues! With already the additions of Australia and Sweden in the last few months to the AlMaghrib family, we are beyond excited to announce now the launch of KUWAIT!

By the grace of Allah and His infinite blessings, we are honored to present our unique approach to Islamic education to Kuwait which has already proven so successful in what is now 11 countries and almost 50 cities across the globe.

This is a great opportunity for many Muslims in the Gulf region who would love to revive how they used to study their Deen when back in the West with that special buzz and excitement, so don’t let it slip! You’ve been asking for AlMaghrib for many years, and now it’s here so don’t lose it!

And can there be a greater way of launching a country than with a beautiful class in a beautiful location?

We are delighted to announce that the launch class will be the smash-hit class Protect This House with Sh Abu Eesa Niamatullah, a seminar which dissects everything there is you need to understand about the Fiqh of the Family and maintaining those vital ties of kinship.

This isn’t just your normal Parenting Seminar but rather goes through all the issues in detail that so many English-speaking parents know all too well, whether it’s the controversy over discipline and punishment of children, or how to get our children to memorise the Qur’an as non-native Arabic speakers, to understanding child psychology as applied to their acts of ‘ibadah, to studying the parameters of what constitutes obedience and disobedience to our parents, to understanding the obligation of “maintaining the ties of kinship” and just so much more. Throw in the fact that this is a hadith class as well, using Imam al-Bukhari’s “al-Adab al-Mufrad” as the base, then you will understand when we say that we couldn’t possibly have launched Kuwait with a bigger class!

As for the beautiful location: it doesn’t come better than the stunning Masjid al-Kabeer in Kuwait City!

We are incredibly excited about this class and we hope to see you there and/or tell your friends and family in the region to not miss out! Once it’s gone, it’s gone for an awful long time and you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss this blockbuster class!

“SubhanAllah PTH is indescribable. Please enroll for this class, InsyaAllah you won’t regret it. Married, unmarried, parents, children, a MUST GO for everyone. May Allah bless Sh Abu Eesa, he’s in a league of his own MasyaAllah tabarakAllah.”

Syamira Asifa, Student, Kuala Lumpur

The details again: May 29th-31st 2014 @ Masjid al-Kabeer with all the info right here

We hope to be given the opportunity to serve you soon!

On Recent Remarks of an Instructor

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.

The World just got a little bit more purple….

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!
