Event Description

Adherence to the Prophetic Way (Sunnah) is at the pinnacle of the priority list for every Muslim striving to please their Creator, Most High. Aisha (May Allah be well pleased with her) reports that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him and his family peace) said, "Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours [Islam] that is not of it, will have it rejected." [Bukhari; Muslim]

So what are these innovations (bidah) then that we need to steer clear of? Why has there been controversy for centuries around what constitutes bidah and what doesn't? Celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him and his family peace), Eid takbeer (invocations) in unison, using dhikr beads, praying indoors for Eid, etc. are rarely discussed without the the conversation on bidah shortly following.

Join us for an Intensive weekend with Sheikh Muhammad b. Yahya al-Ninowy as we take a critical study of Bidah in Islam, what constitutes it, what are the different views on it, how are they derived, and an examination of many case studies with Bidah.

This class is open to everyone as long as you come with a critical mind and are ready to dig deep into the subject of bidah. No previous study is required.

To register for the class, please visit our website at www.madinainstituteusa.org. Cost is $55 if registered before Sep. 17th and $65 after that, so please don't delay!
