    'After seeing comments to my last status...

    The grand institutes of Facebook and YouTube have revolutionised Islamic academia. Centres of learning have existed in the Muslim world since the inception of Islam and have produced great minds in every era. Conversely, Facebook and YouTube are the newest seats of learning yet have produced the greatest number of graduates.

    A person can go from being a layman to a ‘Shaykh’ after making a few profound statuses or video clips that go viral – and this can happen in the space of weeks whereas traditional courses took upto a decade. Hence, the two social media phenomena are being viewed as a great gift and students are enrolling in their thousands every day.

    And the best part – the two establishments are totally free of charge so equal opportunities are at the forefront of their philosophy. All you need is an internet connection. There isn’t an entrance exam and no prior knowledge is required. There aren’t even any exams! A student can say whatever they like and because they are now ‘followed’ by tens of thousands of unknowing fans; they will still remain ‘grand shaykhs’ and nothing can take this accolade away from them.

    For these reasons, Facebook and YouTube are without doubt the most successful Islamic graduate programs in the world.'

    hilarious to us but the sad thing is, some of the impressionable sunnis might believe that the duo are actually leading scholars. very sad.

    I thought Asim studied Nur ul Idha with Shaykh Sjaad Hussain 4 years ago?

    The 1st March 2015 mark the 1st anniversary since the launch of The Centre of Islam and Medicine (CIM), a pioneering initiative aiming to establish the first institution in the west for the research and study of contemporary medical ethical issues. To mark the occasion, the CIM will be holding its second annual fundraising dinner to celebrate the work we have achieved over the last year and enlist your support for what is to come.

    Haveli Buffet Restaurant, Coventry Road, B10 0TH
    Price: From £15 / person

    Entitled ‘Building our Future – the need for research institutions’, the evening will host two of the leading scholars in the world; Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad and Shaykh Dr Asim Yusuf. Their talks will share their insights on what is needed to build our future as a British Muslim Community, looking at the tradition of learning in Islamic history and its challenges going forwards.

    The evening will then offer you the opportunity to be a part of this historic journey. Dr Obadah Ghannam, lead researcher at the CIM, will be hosting an interactive session on a common ethical scenario which patients and doctors are likely to face to help you engage with the work we hope to do. This will then be followed with an auction and fundraiser to give you a chance to support our work – so be sure to bring a cheque book!
