  • sounds like it will be a eventful and well spent summer, good use of your time. I wish I lived in your area, the bay area. The area is full of scholars, like hamza yusuf, zaid sakie, suhaib weeb and more, may ALLAH preserve them for the future of the ummah. I hope i will soon move to the state of california and work with the l.e.o segment, salaams to all.

  • Salam,

    May Allah protect you. This an awesome event glad to hear it will be on the web for us who are unfortante to live in land of American Islam. I am jealous of the Muslim leaving in the Bay Area so much knowledge resides there, InshAllah one day I will be able to visit :)

    the course is a lil expensive though:)

  • I would be interested! But Cali is three hours ahead of me… so I would prefer a recording to watch after our Fajr here.


    i dont want to waste my summer by doing nothing. I intend to start memorizing Holy Quran and want to put my all potential in learning it. I visited this blog and want to know how can i participate in your summer program. I really want to memorize Holy Quran and hadiths. Looking forward to your cooperation.
