Every day, you go through the motions of life; somehow getting yourself to school or work, socializing with friends, coping with stress, running errands, and possibly having a little fun.

Overwhelmed, you find the obligations of Islam burdensome, rushing through a prayer or speeding through dhikr. You felt the beauty of these acts once before, but where has it gone?

“Life’s a hustle” – or so they say.

While you may very well be performing the acts of prayer, fasting the days of Ramadan or even journeying to Makkah, are you able to maintain a strong connection with Allah (swt)?

The secret to your success is found Behind the Scenes – in the very condition of your heart.

AlMaghrib Institute presents a heart-reviving seminar with monumental implications to your spirituality:


No matter the state of your heart, there is still hope for its rebirth.

Shaykh Omar Suleiman discusses Ihyaa Uloom Al-Din in the modern context, shedding light on the concept of zuhd (asceticism) with a pleasant strike of balance.

When you take this seminar, you’ll finally be able to:


As the smiley, friendly giant from New Orleans, there is something uniquely special about Shaykh Omar Suleiman. The youth gravitate towards him, while older audiences are dignified by his presence.

Shaykh Omar’s style and expertise make him just the man to teach Behind the Scenes as our very own ‘Doctor of Soul’. Born and raised in America, he’s bringing the classical texts to your times with the relevance of modern day challenges and obstacles facing the average brother and sister today.

As a die-hard fan of the New Orleans Saints NFL team, Shaykh Omar Suleiman will hear out your individual shackles and respond with, “I understand, and this is how you shatter them!”


Minhaj Al-Qasidin (written by Ibn Al Jawzee) is a Summary of that Magnus Opus of Imam al-Ghazali The 'Ihya Ulum Ad-Din, which is used as the main reference for this seminar.

Not only will you appreciate the works of our scholars from behind the scenes, you will also apply these lessons to your own life.
