Text: Imam Zaid Shakir will translate and with commentary Al-W’adh al-Matlub min Qut al-Qulub (Desired Advise for The Nourishment of the Hearts) by Shaykh Jamal ad-Din al-Qasimi.
The text is an abridgment of Abu Talib Makki’s seminal work, Qut al-Qulub. Rooted in the Qur’an and Sunnah, it focuses on alerting the believers to good practices that enliven the heart and disastrous ones kill it. Shaykh al-Qasimi was one of greatest scholars of the Ummah during the later half of the 19th Century. Spending his career in Damascus, Syria, he had the deep learning and courage to challenge dysfunctional aspects of a Muslim tradition in transition, while maintaining a deep respect for those aspects that were indispensable for salvaging that tradition. A scholar of theology, Hadith and an exegete, whose works include a multi-volume abridgment of al-Qurtubi’s Tafsir. Shaykh al-Qasimi has rendered a great service to the Ummah with this volume.

THE THIRD MONTHLY THINK AGAIN LECTURE
Discussions on Madhhab have often caused confusion within the Muslim community, and often one question remains a key point of contention:

Joining us to answer this key question are special guests all the way from the US, Imam Zaid Shakir and Dr Shadee Elmasry.

The convention aims to promote stronger ties within North American society through reviving the Islamic tradition of education, tolerance and introspection across cultural lines through points of commonality and respect. Furthermore, the convention will be a celebration of our North American identity and Islamic faith. To help attain these ideals, the convention will feature a wide range of voices from various parts of the worldDecember 25, 2015 - 8:00 am - December 27, 2015 - 4:00 pm
Imam Zaid Shakir will participate as a lecturer at the Reviving the Islamic Spirit Knowledge Retreat, which is an annual program held around the RIS Convention to give seekers of knowledge an opportunity to study traditional Islamic sciences, in contemporary context, with some of the leading scholars of our time. Knowledge is the greatest gift a believer can share and it is through such gatherings that students are introduced to the depth and breadth of Islamic scholarship. Rarely do Muslims living in the west get such opportunities and hence RIS KR strives to provide a conducive environment for students to purse their quest for knowledge and enlightenment by studying the traditional sciences preserved through a chain of transmission handed to us through great scholars of the past.December 28, 2015 - 8:00 am - January 02, 2016 - 11:00 am
