PROGRAM & TOPICS
How to Embrace “Divine Wisdom” with Serenity Even When It Hurts the Most
When something doesn’t go according to plan, when a life-jarring event hits, or when you witness indescribable pain in the world…
…sometimes the term, “it’s Hikmah”, doesn’t process that easily.
Allah plans and His Wisdom is infinite – this we know – logically.
But sometimes we can’t see it or internalize it – emotionally.
In this session, welcome this idea into your heart, so you can maneuver through life’s difficulties with ease and comfort.
Key Insight 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.
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.
How to Love for the Sake of Allah When Hate is So Much Easier
Loving for the sake of Allah is an act so virtuous that its reward is exclusive shade on a day when there is no shade but Allah’s Throne.
To love someone is to love goodness for them and to desire their success, despite their misgivings. So in a world where one-ups and pettiness are popular, how do we grow love in our hearts, not hate?
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
The Forgotten Truth About Living a Life of Service
The Prophet (pbuh) said, “The most beloved people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people.
Muhammad Ali, one of the most beloved people of the past century, said, “Service to others is the rent you pay on Earth.”
The Quran and Sunnah speak much of the virtue of serving others – from serving the closest neighbors to stray animals, and everyone (and thing) in between.
But it is not an easy path to walk. It comes with challenges and tests.
In this session, Shaykh Omar Suleiman talks about the virtues and reality of service, and how you can prepare to shine more light into the world.
Danger: How to Reverse the Effects of Sins
You might think that sinning has private ramifications: a black dot that expands in the heart of the sinner.
It’s more than that.
It can transcend to blessings you were about to receive – but now interrupted.
It can impact family, community, and even the next generation.
The effect of sins is a darkness that grows beyond the sinner – but its reversal is simple. Its remedy is easy, yet powerful – handed to us by Allah and His Prophet (pbuh).
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.
Find Your Passion, Build Your Legacy, and Change the World
There has never been a generation in human history with a greater platform to be heard than right now.
There has also never been a generation with more distractions that right now.
In a world where the platform, mic and camera are at your fingertips, what do you have to say?

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.
