… or styled your hair … or whatever it is you do that makes you feel beautiful ... also made you feel spiritual?
What if the way you express your personality everyday…
… no longer feels like a confusing, gray area in Islam?
In fact… what if it feels like a natural extension of your Muslim identity.
There’s a lot of guilt imposed on wanting to look good and dress trendy.
They say it’s because of these 2 narrations of the Prophet ﷺ:
“He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them.”
“He who has, in his heart, an ant's weight of arrogance will not enter Jannah.” [Muslim]
You see that’s only half the narration! The Prophet ﷺ continues to say:
“Allah is Beautiful, He loves beauty.
Arrogance means ridiculing and rejecting the truth and looking down on people.”
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO
DRESS LIKE A MUSLIM?
Some may see a thawb and skull cap as the ideal depiction of a Muslim.
The truth is the Prophet ﷺ himself did not dress like that. He dressed in the cultural norm of the Arabs at the time…
… be they Muslim or not.
… and it was never a thawb.
It comes as a surprise to many that Islam doesn’t teach us what to wear. It only gives us guidelines…
...and the creativity is left up to us.
While questions about beards, hijabs, pant-lengths, and abayas will be answered in this seminar… we’re fully aware the inquiries have gone well beyond that now.
This will be a colorful, eye-opening experience for both the advanced student of knowledge AND the beginner…
… as we look at textual evidences to things like:
Fiqh gets a bad rap. It isn’t a series of yes’s and no’s.
The truth is: Fiqh of Clothing can be incredibly uplifting, empowering and spiritual.
See, this class isn’t simply about what you can and can’t do. That’s not productive.
Rather, the objective of this seminar is to empower you with positive change you can apply almost immediately.
In his past life, Shaykh Saad was the lead singer of a punk rock band, and used to snowboard and skateboard, but he's still rocking his Converse sneakers like a boss! There’s probably nobody better than him to understand the plight of Muslim youth in the face of today’s pop culture pressures.
Shaykh Saad studied Art History, Modern Art, Graphic Design, and Psychology at the University of Maryland. He started his Islamic education at IIASA in Fairfax, VA. He then went on to study in the Islamic University of Madinah where he dedicated himself to the study of Islamic Sciences. He graduated with a Bachelor’s from the Faculty of Shariah, University of Madinah.
Say, "Who has forbidden the adornment of Allah which He has produced for His servants and the good [lawful] things of provision?"
Say, "They are for those who believe during the worldly life [and] exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection."
Thus do We detail the verses for a people who know.
