Within every ship is a captain.

This captain is the master who drives and controls the whole ship. The one who controls the master, controls the ship.

Within our bodies is also a master; a master that drives and controls the rest of us.

That master is the heart.

"Indeed in the body is a lump of flesh. If it is set right, the entire body is set right. And if it is corrupted, the entire body is corrupted. Verily it is the heart."

( al-Bukhari )

As we journey through this life, many things compete for control of this lump of flesh. Worse than that, we become so heedless to what is really going on, that we ourselves actually invite in the problem. We call upon those things because we can’t see past them. Shaytan, our desires, our nafs, people around us, money, society, and culture thus freely enter into our lives and challenge to dominate this master.

But all these things are only slaves, like us!

"Those you call upon instead of Allah are slaves like you!"

(Surat’l -A‘raf, 194)

Our objective is therefore to liberate this lump of flesh from the servitude to the slave, and bring it to the servitude of the Lord of the slave.

When the heart is liberated in this way, it can begin to function as it was created to function. It can begin to love and give and understand the world in the right way - a way based upon Truth, not falsehood, or illusion.

It becomes unlocked from what we had sealed it with.

It becomes clean from the covering and layers of sin encasing it.

It becomes full of light after darkness enveloped it.

It can see again, and guide you after it had been blinded.

"It is not people’s eyes that are blind, but their hearts within their breasts."

(Surat’l-Hajj, 46)

A liberated heart, transforms everything around it. When the heart is transformed, our actions transform.

Our relationships transform.

Our lives transform.

And then, all of society transforms.

"Indeed Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is inside themselves."

(Surat’l-Ra‘d, 11)

What are you waiting for, when you can now embrace that change?

AlMaghrib Institute is proud to present "Transformed", a single-weekend seminar that examines how to bring about this change by studying the purpose and function of the heart as it relates to ultimate success in this life and the next.

It will examine the concept of love and attachment and will go in depth into the principles of relationships as they relate to the state and function of the heart.

It will discuss practical tips on how to transform our relationship with our Creator, ourselves, our spouses, our families and our society, by transforming the state of our heart and our vision of the world.

Taught by the talented and popular Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed – author of the acclaimed “Reclaim Your Heart” - allow her to take you on a journey of transformation using her experience and skill, making you delve into the innermost depths of your soul and making you realise just how at peace you could be despite all of your pain and difficulties in life.

It’s time to be Transformed.

About AlMaghrib

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 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.

Take the website for a spin: discover our seminars, explore the curriculum, find out about our high-impact projects, log in to your MyAlMaghrib Student Portal, and engage with us on our social networks. We think you will agree that what we offer by the Will of Allah is nothing but the best.

AlMaghrib is a non-profit organization.
