Naqshbandi Tariqah 101

Start: Asar onwards till past Isha

Venue: Zawiya Shaykh Abdullah Dagestani (35/398 Marion St, Condell Park), Basmala Islamic Street University @ Condell Park

Fee: Free

Description

Historically in Islamic tradition, only a small proportion of Muslims participate in tariqahs but typically they received wide recognition and acceptance across each Muslim community including from the ulemas. In the modern era, this continues to be the case only for Muslim communities that are able to preserve traditional Islamic scholarship. In Muslim communities where that has broken down, there is much misinformation that twist the definition of Tariqas with excessive hate or romanticized fantasy. In learning Islamic sciences, it is important to gain at least the basic understanding of Tasawuf and Tariqas from scholarly sources even if a person does not wish to participate in a Tariqa eventually. Being informed does allow the person to not fall prey to misinformation and confusion. This session aims to provide such an opportunity through the example of Naqshbandi Tariqa.

This session will also provide opportunities for those who have been asking about understanding the history, basis of Naqshbandi Tariqa, its daily awrad and adab.
