Summer 'Ilm Intensive
The Summer ʿIlm Intensive is designed to create a community of learners who will learn, pray, and socialize together for 2 weeks in the summer focusing on foundational Islamic knowledge.
Description: The Prophet ﷺ said, “Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.” In this hadith, the Prophet ﷺ is referring to knowledge that brings one closer to Allah ﷻ, nurtures love for the Prophet ﷺ, improves one’s character, cleanses their heart, and increases their understanding of Islam leading towards practice. Actively seeking this type of knowledge is an obligation upon each and every single one of us. We have to learn enough about our beautiful way of life that will allow us to worship our Creator properly with understanding. The goal of this intensive is to provide students with an introduction and foundational understanding of five major Islamic disciplines in the company of other students and local scholars:
1) ʿAqīdah (Theology)
2) ʿUlum al-Quran (Quranic Studies)
3) ʿUlum al-Hadith (Hadith Studies)
4) Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence)
5) Tazkiyah (Spirituality)
Who’s it For? The Summer ʿIlm Intensive is ideal for high school and college students as well as adults. Through the intensive we want to create a community of learners who will learn, pray, and socialize together for 2 weeks in the summer.
