Introducing AlMaghrib Institute’s newest seminar, A Heart Serene: Studies in Tazkiyah. This seminar will allow you to engage in a dialogue with your heart. It will allow you to uncover the roots of disobedience, and learn about the most important aspect of our religion – the sincerity of our hearts and our connection to Allah.

Listen to the words of your Creator:
"The day that neither wealth nor sons will be of any benefit except for he who comes to Allah with a pure heart." - Qur'an, 26:89
What does this mean to you?
There will come a Day when NOTHING will benefit you except a pure heart.
...Is your SOUL ready to meet its Creator?
If you’re unsure of the answer, this is the seminar is for you.
A Heart Serene: Studies in Tazkiyah is based on the text of the scholar of the heart, Ibn ul-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah. Follow our teacher, Shaykh Riad Ouarzazi as he delves into the knowledge of the soul and the advice of the scholars on how the Believer can achieve nearness to the Creator.
"...to clean you thereby and to remove from you the whispers of Shaytan and to strengthen your hearts, and make your feet firm thereby." - Qur'an, 8:11
Allow the Mercy of Allah to transform your life by understanding the meaning of your existence.
Ever found yourself thinking, “Is this all there is to life?” ...

3 Reasons why you CANNOT afford to miss this class:
Reason 1: Your akhirah depends on it!
The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa salam) said: “Verily, actions are judged by intention” and the location of the intention is in the HEART. Are you willing to risk the loss of a lifetime’s deeds because your heart wasn’t in it?
Reason 2: Unparalleled access to authentic Islamic knowledge!
Shaykh Riad Ouarzazi has an Islamic education degree from M. Abdullah University. He has studied the Islamic Creed and is an expert in the area of tazkiyah. His humorous and practical teaching style is sure to captivate students.
Reason 3: Tranquility and Ease, guaranteed!
Allah has stated that the source of comfort and ease for the Believers is His remembrance - “Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest” (Surah Ra’d, 28). Put your heart at ease by paving the path to Paradise through knowledge.
Other courses on tazkiyah may ‘touch’ your heart, but leave you in the same spiritual rut a few weeks later. A Heart Serene: Studies in Tazkiyah will empower you by giving you the tools you need to sustain the benefits, long after the seminar has come to an end.
