Classes With Imam Tahir Anwar

Announcement posted on Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Beginning Thursday, January 9 At New SBIA Headquarters (2345 Harris Way)

Rooted in Faith
A Weekly Discussion Series  

Too often are we distracted by topics in life that do not concern God. Such seemingly meaningless distractions can, overtime, become destructive to one’s spiritual health. This weekly discussion series aims to orient one’s internal compass towards God. Covering a variety of topics (including current events, day to day fiqh questions, hadith, etc), Imam Tahir Anwar will discuss the primary goal of a Muslim: How to become rooted in faith in order to become closer to God.  

Every Thursday at 7:30pm

Quranic Tafsir (Sisters Only)
A Weekly Tafsir of Selected Surahs 

An introductory course on Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir) of selected chapters. Taught by Imam Tahir Anwar, this course will cover the meanings along with general themes of the selected chapter. It will also guide one to appreciate the depths of the Holy Qur’an and its deep rooted connections to our daily lives. This course also aims to ground one’s understanding of certain Qur’anic chapters as understood by traditional Islamic scholars.

Every Thursday At 11am

This is one of Imam Ghaza- li’s final works, it embodies a lifetime of learning, experience,and spirituality.
