Yasir Qadhi: Practical Steps to Seek Islamic Knowledge in America (Audio)

UPDATE: The download link is at the bottom and The Q&A is up as well – Click Here!!

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahamtullah,

This is in regards to this post from earlier in the week. I got my hands on the audio alhamdulillah. I thought this was an awesome lecture, and really benefited from the few ahadith Shaykh Yasir Qadhi quoted that I had never heard before. The other stuff he talked about was discussed many times before and I have heard it multiple times alhamdulillah. An example of this is at the lecture at MIST National in the Summer of ’06 in Houston, TX entitled – Advice from an Older Brother.

One thing I noticed about this talk was that he heavily emphasized learning two fields in Islam that every Muslim should ahve a basic fundamental understanding of, namely, ‘Aqeedah (He said theology, I’m not too comfortable using the word yet) and Fiqh. And he recommended some books and audio lectures that everyone should read or listen to. They are:

Fundamentals of Tawheed by Bilal Philips
Critical Study of Shirk by Yasir Qadhi

The Two Shahadas
[alHuda Books Houston] [Muslim Audio] [ILMQuest]by Yasir Qadhi ($25 is cheapest at alHuda)
Critical Analysis of Shirk [Part 1 Part 2 Part 3] by Yasir Qadhi

Books:Fiqh Made Easy by Saalih alSadlaan
A Summary Of Islamic Jurisprudence by Shaykh Salih Al Fawzan

He also mentioned two books for the Seerah:

He highly recommended the book by Shaykh SafiurRahman Mubarakpuri entitled: The Sealed Nectar. And also the Seerah book by Martin Lings – “Muhammad (SAW): His Life Based on the Earliest Sources”, but mentioned that there are a few points of theology in the book that might be incorrect.

The available audio itself – Pros – I edited all the technical issues that we had and most of the disturbances. Also took out long pauses and breaks or questions about missed information from the call. Cons – No Q&A (read further) and no download for right now. I will post the Q&A later in the week insha’Allah, Make du’aa to Allah. There were about 14 amazing and really juicy (some of them) questions. I have it ready just need time to perfect it a bit more insha’Allah, and possibly post it here. And the download I am holding off on, it will take me a while to get all the files together into a high quality mp3 and also need to get approval from CZ MSA (The best MSA Zone in N. America), isnha’Allah. So just sit tight, and until then just listen to the audio insha’Allah!

    JazakumAllahu khayran, that was great! When we had Sciences of the Qur’an here in Nurayn, ustadh Qadhi made a surprise appearence and he went over how to memorize the Qur’an, and mashaAllah just like this lecture, it was very practical.

    Also for seerah audio, I know Imam Anwar al-Awlaki has an awesome set out as well mashaAllah.

    I have learned some points through your blog post post. One other subject I would like to say is that there are plenty of games out there designed specially for preschool age little ones. They involve pattern identification, colors, creatures, and models. These often focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This helps to keep children and kids engaged without having a sensation like they are learning. Thanks
