An Update on The Istanbul Summer 2020 Intensive Program and More

We hope that you and your family are keeping well in these difficult times. Due to the current conditions around the world, we regret to inform you that we have been forced to postpone the SeekersGuidance Summer Intensive until further notice.

However, we are committed, as always, to continue offering reliable and authentic Islamic knowledge without barriers.

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

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.

Imam Zaid Shakir Calls on You to Support SeekersGuidance

By the Grace of Allah, at this critical time of year-end, we were blessed to have Imam Zaid Shakir visit us at SeekersGuidance. He has always been a guide, a support, and a strong advocate of the mission of SeekersGuidance and the tremendous need and value of the Islamic Scholars Fund.

Imam Zaid Shakir reminds us all:

  • To support this wonderful initiative that has been benefiting people for over 10 years and perpetuating the traditional sciences of Islam.
  • About how the Islamic Scholars Fund has been supporting scholars amidst the destruction and strife of our times, and helping to ensure that they can continue to teach and preserve sacred knowledge.
  • To see and review the recent reports that SeekersGuidance has issued for you, our supporters, to illustrate the tremendous impact and beneficial change this work is making, as well as the exciting developments ahead, that can only happen with your support.

Here they are again, for your ease and ready reference:

Quoting Imam Zaid, “May Allah give a great reward to those who are helping to keep the religion of Allah alive in its clarity and connectivity to its roots.”

If we don’t support our scholars, how will we preserve this gift of our religion?

Help us raise $500,000 to support the most deserving and needy Scholars, as well as students of knowledge around the world – young men and women who are devoting their lives to help keep the torch of the Prophetic tradition alive.

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allah does not lift sacred knowledge by removing it from the hearts of people. Rather, He lifts it through the death of scholars—until only the ignorant remain, confused and confusing others.”

Imam Khalid Latif speaks from the heart on the Islamic Scholars Fund:

  • He reiterates how so many people around the world have benefited from the work of SeekersGuidance.
  • He tells us how scholars are sacrificing their lives and their time, in order to give us the knowledge we need to live.
  • He’s seen these very scholars often working in refugee camps and war zones, or closer to home, luminaries of our tradition who are working at gas stations or driving cabs just to make ends meet.
  • He reminds us that if we knew what they possess in knowledge, we would flock to them, but they don’t have the support system they are deserving of.
  • The Islamic Scholars Fund plays such a critical role in supporting these individuals, through whom we will continue to draw close to our Creator.
  • They are the ones who will also cultivate a new generation of scholars who will carry this critical mission forward for our next generations.
  • They are the ones who won’t let us forget what we have in this religion.

Help us raise $500,000 by years end to support the most deserving and needy scholars, as well as students of knowledge around the world – young men and women who are devoting their lives to help keep the torch of the Prophetic tradition alive.
