Description

"Verily the Obligatory Prayers are the foundation of Islam, he who does not perform it destroys his religion". - The Holy Prophet, Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon Him

It is an obligation for all morally responsible Muslims (Mukallaf) to know and understand of Islamic Jurisprudence and the rulings pertaining to the five pillars of Islam.

What about us? Are we equipped with this knowledge that will give us a more holistic view of our faith, and enable us to be better fathers and mothers to our children?

Twins of Faith will connect you with Sacred Law and Islamic Spirituality – how it is an essential aspect towards understanding and practising your faith better. This double-barrelled course will attempt to fill a void in your Islamic knowledge and well-being by educating on the rulings of Sacred Law and understanding its practical applications whilst increasing your Islamic Spirituality through a time-tested manual for Islamic growth and development.

This course will hold the values of Imam Nawawi’s book, Al-Maqasid at its core and adopt the book as a guide towards embellishing a more intricate understanding of our faith by developing a deeper understanding of Islamic Jurisprudence and Spirituality within our state of being.

Through Al-Maqasid, Imam Nawawi’s Manual of Islam - known to be one of the simpler, but holistic manuals to learn the pillars of Islam and their rulings - participants will go through the rulings on the chapters of worship, more specifically, Purity, Prayer, Fasting, etc., thereby equipping them with the required knowledge and enabling them to form a deeper understanding of Islamic Jurisprudence and Spirituality Insha’Allah.

About the Teacher

Ustaz Leyakat Ali

Born in 1975 in Singapore, Ustadh Leyaket Ali studied through the primary and secondary school system in Singapore. He then pursued an in-depth study of the Islamic sciences in the Islamic traditional city of Tarim, situated in the Hadramawt valley of eastern Yemen, widely acknowledged as a premier theological, juridical, and academic center. The city is distinguished for producing outstanding Islamic scholars, including the great Imam Abdullah al-Haddad and the famous jurist from Singapore, Sheikh Umar Al-Khatib, and many others throughout the world. Ustaz Leyaket Ali studied in the institute called Rubat Tarim, an Islamic educational institution established in 1886 by a group of Tarim notables. Many of its graduates, more than 15,000, have travelled to propagate Islam and establish religious institutions all over the world, including Singapore.

Ustaz Leyaket Ali spent six years studying at Rubat Tarim, where he learnt the Arabic language and various Islamic sciences like Qur’an Exegesis (Tafsir), Islamic law and jurisprudence (Fiqh & Shari’ah), Islamic History (Tarikh), Biography of Prophet Muhammad (Seerah), Islamic Spirituality (Tasawwuf), and so on. He graduated in July 2003 with anIjazah equivalent to a Degree in Islamic Studies.

Upon his return, he worked at Al-Mukminin Mosque as its Executive Imam.

He later pursued a Masters Degree of Social Science in Counselling by the University of South Australia, which he graduated in December 2008. He then advanced his interest in interfaith dialogue, joining An-Nahdhah Mosque, known for its Harmony Centre. He is also an active member of Religious Rehabilitation Group (RRG). He has produced two books: “Blessings of Time – Daily Practices of a Muslim” a 150-page book of do‘a (invocations), dhikr (remembrance of Allah), solat (prayers) and acts that a seeker can fulfill in seeking the Divine Pleasure, and a translation of a compilation of invocations entitled “Bintang Kejora”, written by a renowned scholar, Alhabib Zayn Bin Sumayt.
