Suhba Online is an online course consisting of live weekly classes with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui and a “Review, Practice and Fellowship Class” with Shaykh Riad Saloojee, Naeem Saloojee, and Ustadh Amir Abdelzaher.

(Note: Classes are live and not "pre-recorded")

The live class with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui will be held during the week. Shaykh Riad Saloojee's class will be held Sunday afternoon (EST).

The classes are broadcast live. The classes are conducted in a webinar format. Interactive classes will take place at various points in the program.

All classes are recorded and made available online for students to watch and review the material at their convenience. Recorded classes will be posted between 2-3 days after the live class.

Students will be required to commit to between 3 and 5 hours of learning every week.

Every module will be taught in the following format:

  1. Students will listen to a live lecture (between 1-2 hours) of Shaykh Mokhtar every week.

  2. Students will attend a one-hour weekly “Review, Practice and Fellowship Class” (on Sundays) with Shaykh Riad Saloojee, Naeem Saloojee, and Ustadh Amir Abdelzaher. The class will explore the real-life, personal, gradual and progressive practice of what is learned.

The module subjects provide essential and relevant Islamic knowledge that addresses the needs of both the mind and the soul and provides the foundations necessary to 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. They are also encouraged to attend Al-Madina’s weekly Family and Community Dhikr Program as well as explore the Institute’s other programs.
