PROGRAM & TOPICS
The Complete Mindshift: Know Yourself to Know Allah
Why do you fall sometimes? Why do you procrastinate in some acts of worship? We blame the Shaytan – and at times that’s accurate – but could it be that it’s more us than him?
It isn’t your fault, you just haven’t figured out what makes you tick yet. What drives you, what fulfills you and makes you happy.
When you discover “you”, you leverage this self-knowledge to better worship Allah and become the Muslim you’re meant to be.
Key Insights into the Art of Quranic Recitation
Those who recite the Quran with skill are in the company of the noble angels, and those who recite it with difficulty receive double the reward as the Prophet ﷺ taught us.
In this session, learn the foundational tools to transform your recitation no matter your level, and light up your day with the Words of Allah.
The Unexpected Sin and How to Avoid It
Confidence is praiseworthy, even desired. But where is the fine line between it and arrogance?
Protectiveness for your children is human, even Sunnah. But when does it become too much, even sinful?
Being a successful breadwinner is an Islamic responsibility. But when does it become dangerously materialistic?
Sometimes, the same traits we need to prosper in life become the source of our greatest sins.
Learn to recognize the red flags and overcome the unexpected.
Sitting with Allah: How to Grow in Spirituality
There is nothing more beautiful when Islam is internalized and manifested in action.
There is nothing more hideous when Islam coats only the exterior without ever reaching the heart.
Spirituality is the key that differentiates these two types of people. In this crucial session, Shaykh Navaid Aziz will share the ways we can attain an interior beloved to God and people.
When Stories Become Real
Concerning Surah Yusuf, the scholars would say, “No depressed person ever read it except that it cheered them up!”
Realise this for yourself in a special Quranic presentation on the story of Prophet Yusuf (as). Not only will you hear and feel why this is the best of all stories, you will also learn unique lessons that bring light and direction to some of our most recent and relevant challenges in life: temptation, betrayal, power – these aren’t just the trials of kings!
Everyone loves stories, and this one is not only real, it’s more applicable to you than you ever imagined.
Gamechanger: The Future of Muslim Institutions
For the last two decades, the Muslim community has seen no shortage of Masajid and Islamic schools. This is the status quo – and it’s about to change.
There is a necessary shift in what we view as Muslim-serving institutions – both in who runs them and the service they provide.
There is a louder call and pressing need for institutions that are as diverse as the communities they serve, in fields beyond Masajid and Islamic schools.
Moving forward, will we see leaders stepping up the fields of media, social justice, wellness and healing, or finance?
In this session, Shaykh Omar Suleiman shares insight on the future of Muslim institutions that serve and strengthen our Ummah – and what existing ones need to know to stay current.
Urgent: How to Live Life Like There’s No Tomorrow – and Enjoy It Too
Life has an expiration date – this we know logically.
But why don’t we behave like this is true? Important things are put off for later while we indulge in acts that offer little to no benefit.
At the same time, does living life in a state of urgency mean we can’t enjoy it, take breaks and have laughs?
This session is a contemporary look at the Prophetic advice to take advantage of “5 before 5”. Walk away with practical steps to live a balanced, productive life.
How to Extract Spiritual Remedy from Quran
When all of the self-help books are gone and forgotten and all of the “gurus” are erased from our collective memory, the Quran remains.
People the world over ask the question: how do we attain spiritual fulfillment? And the answer is the same the world over: the Quran. Holding onto the Quran with strength. Reciting it, studying it, believing it and implementing it.
How to Flourish Your Family with Faith
You can’t keep your family in a bubble – a futile way of protecting them from a troubled world. How then can you plant seeds of faith so your loved ones can stand on solid ground as they face the trials that come?
In this session, learn effective ways to touch the hearts of the most important people in your life – your family.

The Butterfly Effecf: How Small Deeds Create Large Impact
The Butterfly Effect states that small causes can have larger effects, just as the flapping of a butterfly wing can change weather in another part of the world…
Or put more positively, how a small candle can light an entire home.
In light of the injustices around the world, it becomes imperative to understand and appreciate how the smallest changes in our lives can have significant impact locally and globally.
In this session, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi teaches how to be that small candle that lights the world.
