The month of November was a very busy month for Madina Seminary. Two seminars took place with Shaykh Ibrahim Hussain and both were very successful.
The Tafsir (commentary, explanation, translation) of Surat Luqman seminar took place at York University. Over 1.5 hours, some important verses and messages from this Surat were explained in order to provide advice to the youth today using the advice given by Prophet Luqman (peace be upon him) to his son. We look forward to delivering additional seminars at York University as per the request of the students.
Another seminar, Call of Duty: Modern Day Fitnah, took place at the University of Toronto with Shaykh Ibrahim Hussain. This interactive seminar invited open discussions with students to discuss the Fitnah (roughly translated: temptations) faced by the youth today such as money, sex, and power. As a group, solutions were discussed using authentic narrations of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him and his family) and the Holy Qur’an. This interactive delivery was well received by students and we are looking forward to delivering future seminars in this manner alongside the traditional lectures.
We would like to thank everyone that attended these events or helped to spread the word. We look forward to seeing you at the Madina Seminary campus located in Mississauga (we hope to open to the public as soon as renovations have been completed). Thank you for your support, we look forward to continuously working with you. Nothing is possible without the support of Allah and the community.
