Don’t let a Faith Pandemic Happen

Help Support The Islamic Scholars Fund

“The Islamic Scholars Fund plays a very critical role in supporting individuals who are a means through which you and I will continue to draw closer to our Creator…” – Imam Khalid Latif

 

The Seekers Youth Intensive 2020

In the upcoming days, we have an exciting youth program starting online with SeekersGuidance. This is suitable for anyone who wants to learn their basics but is specifically designed for ages 13-18; both boys and girls. If you’re a parent or guardian you can sign up your child(ren), but if you’re a youth that’s interested we recommend you inform your parents before registering.

Cost: Free

This youth program will be delivered by two of our SeekersGuidance scholars:

  • Imam Yama – an American who served as an Imam in Santa Barbara for 8 years. He dealt directly with youth on a day to day basis and knows the challenges they face
  • Shaykh Yusuf Weltch – Shortly after converting to Islam over a decade ago, Shaykh Yusuf studied Islam full time at an Islamic Seminary for nearly five years, but after studying there he was looking for a deeper understanding of the religion that addressed the spiritual dimensions of the message of the Qur’an and the Prophetic Way, and that had a deep concern for calling others to this truth and beauty, he found himself traveling to Tarim, Hadhramawt (Yemen). He then spent four years there completing his Islamic studies.

Dates: August 2-16th, 2020

Upon registration, on August 2nd, students will be given access to two courses:

  1. A course on Islamic belief – mainly covering the pillars of faith but with a bit more detail
  2. A course on the fiqh of worship – this will cover: i) purification (taharah) ii) ghusl and iii) prayer (salah)

This program will also have live sessions (timings to be announced soon) where the teachers along with a guest will take students’ questions and discuss common challenges they go through, such as, and not restricted to, substance abuse, video game addictions, etc.

Students will have the opportunity to ask their questions and have them answered.

So why should you sign up?

  • To engage your teens (or yourself) and give them a spiritual boast before the start of the school year.
  • This unique online opportunity gives students a chance to ask more embarrassing questions that they would otherwise be too shy to ask in person.
  • You’ll learn purification (taharah) and prayer, while learning how to purify your soul and remove ailments such as arrogance, etc, to grow spiritually.

In These Last Days of Ramadan, Support the Spread of the Prophetic Legacy – Imam Yama Niazi

Imam Yama Niazi discusses the Islamic Scholars Fund and the critical importance of supporting students of knowledge and qualified teachers around the world.

“This is a fund that helps and supports our teachers, our scholars, our da’ees and those who call to Allah (subhana wa ta’aala) ).” – Imam Yama Niazi

We need your help to raise $1 million in Zakat and Charity to urgently support scholars in need around the world.

The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) is reported to have said: “Scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.” 

But in times of crisis, when our mosques and religious institutions are closed down, our scholars are left unsupported and struggling to survive. Taking up odd jobs to provide for their families, leaving our communities bereft of the light and guidance it’s in utter need of.  Therefore there is no better, more important initiative than the spread of knowledge. 

Don’t Let a Faith Pandemic Happen: Support Our Islamic Scholars Fund This Ramadan 

Give your zakat and charity to the Islamic Scholars Fund in these blessed last days of Ramadan to help deserving religious scholars and students. In these difficult times, knowledge has even greater impact; and your support will help it spread. 

Through your support and contributions of Zakat and Charity – to the Islamic Scholars Fund – you are directly helping deserving qualified scholars and students.  and becoming a part of the Prophetic legacy.

Purify Your Wealth

“The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” [Quran 2:261]

Donate now to ensure scholars have the support required to continue their priceless service to their communities.

Support the spread of sacred Knowledge through the Islamic Scholars Fund in these last days of  Ramadan, by giving your zakat and charity to help us raise $1 million for deserving students and scholars in need around the world.
