‘Ulum al-Hadith: Imam Suyuti’s Tadrib al-Rawi
For the last few years, Shaykh Muhibb al-Din al-Rumi has presented, with the Imam Shafi’i Institute, a well-developed and progressive course in the science of hadith. Firstly, the acclaimed primer, al-Manzumat al-Bayquniyyah, along with commentaries from Shaykh Hasan al-Mashshat and Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahman Sulayman al-Ahdal were covered. After offering this a few times, the next level was explored through a critical reading of Shaykh Ahmad Shakir’s al-Ba’ith al-Hathith. Two levels were covered in these courses, and now it is time for the next level. We shall now present a course in this most important subject through a reading of Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti’s Tadrib al-Rawi Sharh Taqrib al-Nawawi insha’Allah. And this will be accompanied by a study of Ibn Rajab’s commentary on Imam Tirmidhi’s ‘Ilal insha’Allah.
Accordingly, two primary texts in the subject of ‘ulum al-hadith will be presented in this course: (1) Suyuti’s Tadrib al-Rawi and (2) Ibn Rajab’s Sharh al-‘Ilal.
Days & Times: This course will begin on January 25, 2016 at 11AM EST. It will run two days a week at days and times that will be agreed on with the teacher; exact times and days will be set in the first class. The course will be for between one and one and a half years insha’Allah.

Usul al-Fiqh: The Luma’ of Abu Ishaq al-Shirazi
Over the past few years, Shaykh Yaqub Abdurrahman, through the Imam Shafi’i Institute, has been presenting classes in usul al-fiqh; Imam al-Haramayn’s Waraqat has been studied numerous times. Now, we intend to present another level in the subject. Shaykh Yaqub will be presenting an intermediate class in usul al-fiqh through readings of Abu Ishaq al-Shirazi’s al-Luma’ fi Usul al-Fiqh. These readings will be supplemented by sections from Abu Bakr al-Khatib al-Baghdadi’s al-Faqih wa al-Mutafaqqih along with the teacher’s explanation of the material insha’Allah.
Days & Times: Saturdays & Sundays at 6PM EST starting on February 20; the course’s duration will be approximately one-year long.
The tuition is $600USD for the hadith course, $600 for the usul al-fiqh course, and $50 for the course on marriage. Please contact us for options like financial aide or payment plans insha’Allah.
