The battle was raging wrong...
Musaylimah's forces ripped through the ranks of the Companions...
They would not lose...
they could not lose...
a simple rock...
a podium for honor and truth, so it shall be...
The Liar would not win, could not, Ammar ibn Yasser would not allow it...
Certainty filled his lungs... the call of criterion... division between the believers and the Liar...


"Alif. Laam. Meem. This is the book that contains no doubt; a guide for the Muttaqoon." - Qur'an, 2:1-2

As the Muslims swept from land to land in conquest, the greatest teachers flooded the lands, educating all in the book of Allah and the Sunnah of Allah's Messenger, sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam. Grand teachers like Abu Ad-Dardaa', radi Allahu 'anhu, in Ash-Shaam. Intense teachers like Abdullah ibn Masood, radi Allahu ‘anhu, in Iraq. See yourself sitting in these classes! What subject would they be teaching?

"Then the cities of Islam grew, and illiteracy disappeared from amongst the Arabs because of their constant occupation with the Qur'an." - Ibn Khaldun: Al-Muqaddima

Yes, they taught the Qur'an day and night. And from the Qur'an all knowledge was extracted.

"Nothing have we omitted from the Book, and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end." - Qur'an, 6:38

When was the last time you got to drink from this ocean?

"You are proceeding upon a people who buzz like bees in their recitation of the Qur'an. Make bear the Qur'an for them. Do not distract them and divert them (from their study)!" - Ameer Al-Mu'mineen Umar, radi Allahu 'anhu

In this seminar, Ustadh Muhammad Alshareef shall return with the AlMaghrib students to the fountain of all believers: Al-Quran Al-Kareem. The name Surat Al-Baqarah evokes in many the awe of 'big-Surah', but few today get the chance to really tread through the wisdom and guidance it carries. Only a few - pray you are included amongst those few.

On the authority of Abu Huraira (radi Allahu 'anhu), the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said,

"Don't make your homes graveyards! Indeed the Devil runs from the house in which Sura al-Baqara is recited." - Saheeh Muslim

Find out: what is it about Surat AlBaqarah that makes devils run away from it? Find out: why would Surat AlBaqarah defend a person on their day of most pressing need?

Nawas Ibn Sam'an (radi Allahu 'anhu) said,

"I heard the Allah's Messenger, sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam, say, 'On the Day of Judgment, the Qur'an and people of the Qur'an who used to carry out it's commandments on earth will be brought forward. Surat al-Baqara and Aali-Imran will come forward and defend those people who recited them and carried out their commands.'" - Saheeh Muslim

"AlMaghrib Rocks!" - An AlMaghrib Student


3 hours Friday night, 8-10 hours on Saturdays and Sundays, exact timings vary by city.

  • The session include a 10-minute break every 50 minutes. The day is mixed with activities, discussions, and lecture.
  • The time includes a two-hour break in the early afternoon.
  • Don't let the hours scare you. AlMaghrib is different from marathon halaqahs that trigger memories of pain. InshaAllah, count on it.

Previous AlMaghrib seminars have sold out in New Jersey and Houston long before the actual event. Students had to be turned back due to limited space. And if you delay your registration, Shaytan will have one more chance at preoccupying you so that you are later unable to attend...
