Umrah Seminar - Dec 17 2017 2 PM by Dr. Maqbool Patel

Join Dr. Maqbool Patel and get prepared for a journey of a lifetime. Learn about the Fiqh of Umrah, Rites & Rituals, Prerequisites, as well as get your questions answered.

Under the open skies and in front of the Ka’bah. Refreshingly cold Zamzam water. The loud cries of Labbayk Allahumma Labbayk! What Umrah memories will you come back with?

As part of the trip, you will perform Umrah.  The virtues of Umrah are many. Not only did the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah SWT be upon him) specifically mention the virtues of Umrah, he encouraged us to perform Umrah.

If you have never performed Umrah: Don’t panic. You will be invited to our training seminar where we will go through the Umrah rites with you and give you practical advice. You will also be assigned to a scholar who will guide you through your Umrah.

If you have been to Umrah before: You will still be invited to the training seminar where you can refresh your memory. Take advantage of your assigned scholar to build upon your knowledge of Umrah and get more out of your Umrah.

 

Ibu Hurairah (RA) narrates that the Prophet(SAW) said, ‘An Umrah to another Umrah will be redemption of sins for whatever (minor) occurs between them.’ (Bukhari, Muslim).

Ibne Mas’ood (RA) said that the Prophet (SAW) said, ‘Follow up the Hajj and Umrah, because they certainly remove poverty and sins as fire separate the impurities from iron, gold and silver.’(Tirmidhi, Ibne Khuzaimah, Ibne Hibbaan)

 

Ibne Umar (R) narrates that Prophet (S) said, ‘The warrior in the cause of Allah, the pilgrim and the one who is performing Umrah are all the delegation of Allah. He called them and they responded and they will ask of His bestowals and He will give it to them.’ (Ibne Majah, Ibne Hibbaan)

 

 

Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda - 3 Day Seminar November 3rd to 5th 2017

FIRM GROUND
FOUNDATIONS FOR CLARIFYING TEXTUAL MISINTERPRETATION 
By Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda

When the very things you hold dear are under constant attack, not knowing how to respond is often the precursor to a crisis of faith. This class covers the most commonly misinterpreted source texts in Islam, refutes doubts and develops a methodology to understanding them. There is no beating around the bush here. Discuss matters head on like reasons people leave Islam, attacks on Quran, accusations of gender bias, issues from the Seerah, and the nature of the Islamic penal code.

Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and at the age of 10 began the road to knowledge by moving to Karachi, Pakistan, and memorizing the entire Qur’an in less than one year.

After graduating from high school, he continued his studies abroad at the renowned Jamia Binoria and graduated from its demanding seven year program in 2002 at the top of his class with numerous licenses to teach in various Islamic Sciences. Along with the Alim Course he concurrently completed a B.A. and M.A. in Arabic from Karachi University. He also obtained a Masters in Islamic Studies from the University of Sindh. He taught Arabic at the University of Texas at Arlington from 2005 to 2007. He served as the Imam at the Colleyville Masjid in the Dallas area for three years. He is a founding member and chairman of Mansfield Islamic Center.

He has served as an instructor and curriculum advisor to various Islamic schools and Islamic studies programs including Qalam Seminary for which he is the founder and director. His latest projects include Quran Intensive (a summer program focusing on Arabic grammar and Tafsir), Quranic analysis lectures, Khateeb Training, chronicling of the Prophetic Biography, and personally mentoring and teaching his students at the Qalam Seminary.

His light-hearted nature and southern warmth make him one of the most sought-after speakers on the international scene.
