How To Grow & Prosper in The UK? - A to Z of Zakat & Sadaqah

"The root meanings of zakah connect it to the idea of (1) purifying, cleansing oneself of the taints of avarice, thus freeing oneself from being trapped (or owned) by the things one owns. And (2) growing, prospering: zakah lifts a burden from the soul, so that it can grow in goodness. In the same way as a stone can obstruct a plant’s growth, and removing it allows the plant to benefit from light; so also not recognising the duty of zakah can obstruct one’s wealth from bringing good to oneself and one’s community." - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi (Oxford)

Have you ever wondered why people are trapped and there are so many barriers and obstructions to growth, prosperity and goodness? If so sign up for the most comprehensive seminar in the UK on Zakat and Sadaqah coming up this Sunday, InshaAllah.

Testimonials 

"I have been to two of the CISS courses and can say with certainty that they have been inspiring to the highest degree. Shaikh Akram's style of teaching ensures that you are connected from the start, not only in terms of the relevance of the knowledge he is sharing, but also through the openness of the sessions. He not only shares the important knowledge on the topic but also encourages the questioning of all that knowledge in order to make it relevant for us in today's world. These courses have helped me to reinvigorate and renew my passion for my faith and have encouraged me to continuously seek and apply the vast knowledge there is in Islam." - Rimla Akhtar, Chairperson, Muslim Women's Sport Foundation, London 

"Alhamdullilah I had a fascinating day learning Usul-ul-Hadith from Shaykh Nadwi, today in Cambridge. Such a learned man and so humble, Subhanallah" - Muhammad Ibrahim Ali, St Ives, Cambridgeshire

"Of all the scholars I have had the opportunity to study with, I have found Shaikh Akram Nadwi to be the closest, in knowledge, manners and teaching, to how I would imagine some of the great Hadith scholars of the past would have been. He has a vast knowledge of Qur'an, Hadith and Fiqh, a down-to-earth, humble, approachable style, and great teaching ability. His classes are not just beneficial from a learning perspective, but also to marvel at the awe-inspiring wealth of knowledge of our scholars masha Allah. His 57 volume work going through the biographies of some 8,500 women scholars of Hadith is a monumental endeavour. The mere fact of its existence can be a major talking point in discussion with Muslims and non-Muslims, and is almost a stand-alone proof of Islam's unparalleled wealth of female scholarship." - Dr Omar Mahroo, Cambridge/London
