How to Give Shahaada in Ten Minutes!

asSalaam’alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

DawahCorps and MSA @ UH(my alma mater) present one of the greatest da’wah courses ever designed for the West:

How to Give Shahaada in Ten Minutes!

by Yusha Evans

A course Written and Directed by Kamal el Mekki

Saturday, November 01, 2008 from 10:00 AM – 03:00 PM (CT)

Register for the Event Here!

I took this course twice or three times with Br. Kamal el Mekki, and alhamdulillah it was definitely one of the best courses on da’wah I have ever taken. I did use the techniques when I would go out on the streets with the brothers, and they seemed very effective. No one way will ever work each and every person you meet, in the end the caller always needs to use wisdom when calling someone to Islam because everyone is a different case. But the course did lay a good foundation and did give some tools to approach different people differently and reply to different objections/excuses differently. I will tell you this from my own experience that this method actually works. alhamdulillah.

The other thing I wanted to mention is the website/project – dawahcorps.com. Masha’Allah this is one of the most beneficial and well organized projects I have seen come up in the past year or so. Everytime I go back to Houston everything, almost everything seemed the same, without much change. Except new standards for the level of organization and professionalism in the field of Islamic Da’wah. And a lot of the credit for this high opinion of mine goes to DawahCorps, alhamdulillah. I am/have been very excited about this project, but too bad I can’t show it as much due to the physical distance from this project as well as my constriction on time on this island(Islamic Da’wah on the island is different, left for another post). I encourage everyone to go to the Dawah Corps website – www.DawahCorps.com – and check out all their services and definitely consider using their material and perhaps arranging some of their seminar in your cities.

I leave you with this interview of Yusha Evans by The Deen Show:

Ahmed Sidky: The Hereafter Workshop

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahamtullah,

Masha’Allah this is an awesome workshop by Ahmed Sidky. The recording was done at UT Austin on Friday February 9th, 2007. The same workshop but a little bit more detailed and intensive one was done at Masjid alHamza – Mission Bend Masjid on Saturday, February 10th, 2007 from ‘Asr to Isha which was recorded by Muslim Audio, alhamdulillah! So look out for the professional and official recording of this product soon from Muslim Audio!

This is a decent quality recording of the workshop by a brother from the UT MSA. I have edited the tracks due to the enormous length and split them according to the stages that Ahmed Sidky talked about. The Hereafter which includes Death, the Grave, the Last Day, Hellfire and Paradise, are fundamental concepts that every Muslim should know about. The more one knows about these concepts the more he or she will find his/her eeman increasing. Other concepts from the Hereafter like the Signs of the Day of Judgment are not mentioned in this lecture. Ahmed Sidky also did this awesome talk at the ISNA Dallas Conference in the summer of 2006 about Paradise which literally had the entire crowd in tears. Insha’Allah once I get a hold of that I will try to upload it as well. Allah Knows Best. The Total Run time for the entire recording of this workshop is about 3 Hours and 4 Minutes! Enjoy!

Online Resources for Studying the Sciences of Hadith

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

Since we have the Chain of Command: Sciences of Hadith alMaghrib Institute Seminar coming to Houston the last two weekends of June, insha’Allah, I thought I start preparing for it, even though there is that chance I might not be in Houston during that time. I have noticed that if I don’t mentally prepare myself for an alMaghrib class it is hard for me to get the most benefit out of it. due to this I have skipped a few in the past year. Whereas the years before I didn’t skip out on a single one! So I first decided to track down all the online resources available. Most of the audio I have listened to already, what is left is the articles, and e-books, insha’Allah. So the following is the result of my search. If anyone knows of any other articles, posts, links that i should include in here please let me know, insha’Allah. jazakallahu khayran. was Salaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullah.
