About Study Al-Islam
Study Al-Islam program began in 2014 during the holy month of Ramadan. The program encourages the understanding and the application of the Qur'an as the primary source for making daily decisions in our personal, family and community life. We believe that the Qur'an is the revealed word of G-D. We believe that Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) embodies the Qur'an and is a mercy to all mankind. We believe that the revelations of Qur'an preserve the inspired teachings of all previous Prophets before Muhammed (PBUH).
Study Al-Islam is a 30-minute series of lectures that are offered in two parts, Ramadan and Life Topics. The caller conveniently dials in from any location from around the world at a fixed Eastern Standard Time. The lectures are offered by respected and learned Speakers. The Speakers explain concepts in the Qur'an, traditions of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), and the Arabic language, according to the insightful, scriptural, and contemporary language of Imam W.D. Mohammed (raa). Study Al-Islam speaks to the seeker of knowledge and the sincere at heart.
The Study Al-Islam website is dedicated to celebrating the individual achievements of our collective community. The information on the website is to promote and bridge public service and partnerships between people of like-minds and to strengthen our wholesome life.
The ability to realize and achieve our greatest potential depends upon the threads of information that we use to weave together our spiritual and emotional development. These decisions influence our success in this life and the hereafter.
