I am pleased to share few updates of online courses in this section.
Course Title : Mission Sharee’ah
Offered by : Illume Academy
About the course:
There is some other reason. Check!!!
Just 4 questions…
1. Why did Islaam prohibit Alcohol? Is it because it intoxicates? Not exactly! There is some other reason…
2. Why did Islaam prohibit Suicide? Is it because we are harming ourselves? Not exactly again! There is some other reason…
3. Why did Islaam prohibit Prostitution? Is it because it is an illegal relationship? Hmm. Not on the spot! There is some other reason…
4. Why did Islaam prohibit Riba (Usury)? Is it because it is taking other’s wealth unlawfully? Closer but not precise! There is some other reason…
We can hear you say, “Fine! If it is for other reasons, then what’s the exact reasons?”
That’s the point! Did you realize that each of the above cases is linked to some higher objectives of Islaamic law? Yes! There’s a link!
“Then what is that link called? What’s the exact answer for all?”
To answer it generally, it is “Goals of the Sharee’ah.” If you like to know the specific answer, then you have to attend the workshop.
Come and learn Maqaasid ash Sharee’ah or as we call it “Mission Sharee’ah” !!!

Why should you attend?
To understand the general framework of the Sharee’ah and the entire visualization of Islam
To recognize the wisdom/objectiveness/rational nature behind laws and texts of Sharee’ah
To understand whether we should take the law by its spirit or by the text
To realize how Sharee’ah operates upon a single system in which there is no contradiction
To understand how Sharee’ah cannot become outdated
“It is noted that Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah), believed that people who are most likely to be on the truth, are those who linked the Islamic rulings with the Higher Objectives meant by the Legislator.”
I got a response from one of the readers regarding the picture in my post ‘Are You A ‘Diest’?’
The response was, “God should not instill fear. He should be a loving God.”
Thank you for your response my Reader!
Your comments make me go better n better!
First of all, a God should not be deprived of anything. He should have every quality.
If He is just showing love, He is lacking an attribute of anger.
If He is just an angry God, He will not be a God anymore.
So He should instill both fear and love.
In addition He should instill hope too.
Fear because if you do mistakes, God will punish you.
Hope because if you repent to Him, God will forgive you.
Love because if He forgives you, He will reward you too, if He wills it.
Quote by Ibn al-Qayyim: “The heart is like a bird: love at its head and its two wings are hope and fear.”
There should be a right balance between them.
We should fear our Lord my reader! We should fear that we will be punished if we do bad deeds. We should fear the Hell fire. Otherwise you do whatever you want and all bad deeds and no fear and you are gone…
This is not an unnatural thing my reader! You yourself want God to be angry with the one who killed innocent people. Don’t you?
You want God to punish the man who did something evil to your loved ones. Don’t you?
This is from our inner soul, we need God to show love and at times we need Him to be angry too.. (ofcourse not with us..lol)
But don’t worry; God’s love is muchhh moreee than His anger.
