To know Him is to worship Him: A prolonged course on Nur ul Idah

Nur ul Idah is a Short manual written by Imam Hasan Abu’l Ikhlas ash-Shurunbulali. It outlines four of the five pillars of Islam (tahara/salah, siyam, zakat, hajj) and gives the Hanafi position on major rulings that one would need to know in order to make correct one’s ibadah. Unlike other popularly studied books, Nur ul Idah is more recent, having a 500 years gap between the author and the modern day. This fact allows us to read a few more recent and detailed examples in the fiqh of worship. In addition, the author is retrospectively considered as a jurist who was ahl tarjih, meaning that his work included deciding upon and distinguishing the definitive position in the Hanafi madhhab. This manual will allow one to learn the fiqh of worship without confusing details about the various positions.

At the end of this course, the student should be able to break down all ibadat into its obligatory, mandatory and sunan components. The student should become familiar with the final positions of key issues found in the fiqh of worship.

This course will be taught by two traditionally trained scholars: Shaikh Ahmad Muhammad and Shaikh Omair Shariff.

Sheikh Ahmad Muhammad: He was born and raised on the east coast of the United States. After reading the Quran in 1993, he began spiritual journey and after several years of searching, he converted to Islam in 2001. He studied informally through many online institutions. He accomplished traditional Aalim course recently from al-Noor Institute of Islamic Sciences, Houston, Texas.

Omair Shariff: He was born and raised on the east coast of the United States before moving to Texas at the age of nine. After years of informal education, he began his formal studies at Al-Noor Institute of Islamic Sciences. Where he studied a traditional Aalim course with various respected traditional scholars such as Shaykh Naeem Abdulwali and Mufti Qamarul Hasan Bastawi. He, as well, accomplished traditional Aalim course recently from al-Noor Institute of Islamic Sciences, Houston, Texas.
