Correction of Error Regarding Shaykh Hamza Karamali

We regret an error in our end of year Islamic Scholars Fund prospectus for 2019. It was wrongly stated that Shaykh Hamza Karamali (then our Dean of Academics) was a part of the Islamic Scholars Fund Committee.

This is incorrect, and an error. We apologize to Shaykh Hamza Karamali for this. Shaykh Hamza Karamali had no role whatsoever in the oversight, disbursements, or allocation of the zakat funds.

And Allah alone gives success.

Here are a few things that you may benefit from as we await relief during these tough times…

The SeekersGuidance COVID19 Webinar

Last week SeekersGuidance put together an important webinar to provide clarity in these challenging times with Muslim scholars, teachers, medical professionals, and thought leaders from around the world.

The SeekersGuidance COVID19 Webinar

Deserving Muslim Scholars Need Your Help Now

Give your zakat and charity now to urgently assist them through the Islamic Scholars Fund.

Give a Little, Make a Huge Impact: Dar al-Fuqaha Needs Your Support to Buy Media Equipment

Give a little and make a huge impact.

We need to raise $6,000 USD immediately to provide The Dar al-Fuqaha Seminary in Istanbul with the media and recording equipment they need to continue supporting students.

This will not only ensure that current students can continue to benefit from their teachers during these difficult times, but will help reach thousands more with the Prophetic Guidance they direly need.

Don’t delay, give what you can and become our partner in this critical project, and earn the reward of on-going charity. 

We Need to Be Concerned. The Situation is Getting More Urgent. Please Give Zakat & Charity Now.

Asalamoalaikum wa Rehmatullah, may this find you and your loved ones safe.

We’re only at $11,000 of the $150,000 we urgently need.

Give your zakat and charity now.

WHY ARE OUR SCHOLARS SO IMPORTANT?

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.” Throughout history, the scholars have carried the Prophet’s torch — in teaching and guiding, and ensuring the community remains on the straight path.

The Dar al Fuqaha Seminary is Being Directly Affected

We have all celebrated the recent launch of the Dar al Fuqaha, where almost 150 students are benefiting on-ground from a full schedule of classes with leading Islamic scholars, from Syria and elsewhere, at the Mevlevihanesi, a historic Ottoman seminary in Istanbul. This was made possible only through the Islamic Scholars Fund and your support.

But now, this is under threat. There is a complete shutdown, with an imposed curfew, empty halls, and the livelihood of most of these scholars is under threat.

Don’t wait till Ramadan: give your zakat and charity now to support needy and deserving Islamic scholars –who are so challenged by the current crisis.

Supporting scholars–who preserve and spread the light of faith and Prophetic guidance in these testing times–is the best of charity:

عَن أبي هريرة أنَّ رَسُول اللَّه ﷺ قَالَ: مَنْ دَعَا إِلَى هُدىً كانَ لهُ مِنَ الأجْر مِثلُ أُجورِ منْ تَبِعهُ لاَ ينْقُصُ ذلكَ مِنْ أُجُورِهِم شَيْئًا رواهُ مسلمٌ

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever calls to guidance has the like of the reward of those who follow them–without this reducing their reward in any way.” [Muslim]

Supporting Islamic scholars is among the highest of Ummatic imperatives today.

Help spread the light of Prophetic guidance in these challenging times. Invest your Zakat and charity impactfully — to preserve sound, reliable Islamic knowledge for future generations.

Please remember, we don’t need to wait until Ramadan. The best of zakat and charity is the giving that has the greatest benefit. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

So go to seekersguidance.org/donate — give generously; encourage others to give; and pray for the scholars and students in need, and for all those affected.
