Taharah – Purification – is far more than just making wudhu’ and that’s also assuming you know the rulings and differences of opinion concerning even just wudhu’ !
Do a quick survey amongst your friends or your local Masjid:
Suddenly, that survey has just opened your eyes right?
We guarantee you one thing about the act of purification: it is a huge topic that requires a deep understanding at the hands of an experienced teacher. And fortunately for you, Shaykh AbdulBary Yahya is just the man for the job!
"The shaykh did a very good job of keeping the audience engaged. I have never attended a class this
long and stayed focused the whole time."
Remember: a person will not be able to stand before Allah on the Day of Standing, unless he stood correctly in prayer in this life. And there is no prayer without being in a proper state of purity. Are you really sure you know how to purify yourself?
Introducing AlMaghrib Institute’s new single-weekend seminar "The Purification Act: Fiqh of Taharah" with Shaykh AbdulBary Yahya, this class will really open your eyes to a number of key principles in our Deen that you never expected on a topic as “simple” as purification.
As the chapter that every classical and contemporary scholar from every madh-hab starts their fiqh teachings with, you will likewise start from the very beginning by understanding the application of juristic tools and the deriving of rulings based on primary and secondary evidences.
If that sounded too complicated, then put another way: you will really understand what it means to purify yourself, all the way from what substances we can use, and the methods to use them by, and the rules concerning states of purity thereafter.
Whether it is ghusl, tayammum, istinja’, istijmar, najasah, tahir and tahur, the nullifiers of wudhu’, etiquettes, the prohibited matters, and so on – all of these aspects of purification and more fall under what is known as obligatory knowledge.
This seminar will empower you to understand how the scholars discuss detailed matters of law, and how they differed in their conclusions, building your respect for our sacred tradition. Shaykh AbdulBary utilises his extensive knowledge to bring depth and ease of understanding to this wide topic, as well as his ability to revive the hearts so you actually go through that awesome experience during your wudhu’ where you really feel it, as if the sins were falling away in front of your eyes!
In summary, you will really learn how to become pure of body and thus pure of heart by the Will of Allah!
"Every class I have attended has been a blast. May Allah reward all the people associated with AlMaghrib
"If I knew AlMaghrib was this great I would have attended all the other classes a loooong time ago! Can't wait for the next class InshAllah."
"Sheikh Abdulbary is a superb storyteller, has a captivating lecturing style, and a great sense of humor."
“Sh AbdelBary is an easy going man, just someone you can talk to and listen to. Jazakum Allah Khair for your time and effort”
"Sheikh Abdulbary Yahya is a natural storyteller and he teaches from the heart, creating positive feelings in the classroom and laying the foundations for learning."

“Shaykh Abdbary Yahya is a great lecturer!”

Reason 1: You are a human being in need of forgiveness
It is in your nature to make mistakes, but the Mercy of the One you sinned against is so great that He gives you regular opportunities to be forgiven.
The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
"Anyone who performs wudhu’, and performs it excellently and correctly, his sins will
come out from his body, even coming out from under his nails."
Reason 2: See the result immediately of your new knowledge
You will leave this seminar with specific detailed knowledge that will not only correct all your acts of worship, but also allow you to gain unlimited reward by helping others to fix their mistakes and give them guidance on what is considered by consensus to be obligatory learning.
With your newly learnt tools, you will be able to dive into the other chapters of fiqh and Shari‘ah with renewed confidence and direction!
Reason 3: A teacher you can relate to

We started up in 2002 with a simple question - how could we teach you Islam in a way that was fun, social, quality, spiritual, and oh yeah, academic?
We asked around, and it turned out people wanted teachers who knew their stuff and who didn't turn learning Islam into a snoozefest, they wanted super quality and they didn't want endless weeks of lectures that would get in the way of their busy lives.
We listened. And AlMaghrib Institute was born.
Based upon an ethos of excellence and a refusal to accept excuses for poor quality, we offered single and double-weekend seminars, with the most engaging instructors around, using top professional multi-media materials. Since that time, your response has been insane! You’ve asked us to establish chapters (also known as Qabeelahs) in over 40 cities worldwide, from North America, to Europe, to Asia, to the Middle East and to Australia too! Amazingly, we've now taught the Islamic Sciences to over 80,000 unique students and growing every day.
With the blessings of Allah, Most High, AlMaghrib is now the leading Institute teaching premier Islamic education in the West with the largest on-site student body. Year by year, we’ve set the standard and launched exciting new projects, inspired so many more to do great work in their communities, and raised the bar on how knowledge is not only sought...but is also loved!
AlMaghrib is exceptionally selective about its instructors to ensure that all of them are fluent in the language of instruction. It delights us and our student body that our seminars are taught by highly specialized scholars and educators who are among the best in their field, bar none.
