The module subjects provide essential and relevant Islamic knowledge that address the needs of both the mind and the soul and provide the foundations necessary for a life of intellectual certitude, spiritual transformation and striving for nearness to the Divine.
A basic study of Usul al-fiqh is necessary in modern times to regain an appreciation for our intellectual and spiritual scholarly heritage, acquire certainty in the rational foundations of our faith, and provide us with basic tools to understand a number of critical and misunderstood issues, such as bid‘a.
The usul al-fiqh module does not focus on the principles of any one school. The focus is on foundational areas of study that are either generally neglected or not taught within a holistic intellectual, spiritual and practical paradigm. The study of essential fiqh is readily accessible through a variety of different avenues so we won't cover it as a standalone subject in this module.
Each module contains a summary of decades of study of countless classical and modern texts. The intent of Suhba Online is not to restrict the student to one text, but to acquire essential knowledge necessary for spiritual development and growth in a modern context.
Students will receive brief, weekly, practical advice and food for thought. Students will also have the opportunity to join our live weekly remembrance with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui every Sunday. The weekly remembrance includes Qur’an, sending peace and blessings upon the Messenger ﷺ and reciting the daily litany of remembrance. It is a wonderful avenue to recharge spiritual energy for the week ahead.
