The Academy for Learning Islam will be hosting the following Online Courses, Workshops and Webinars over the months of May and June 2014:
 
ALI 265: Enhancing the Daily Prayers
Most Muslims say their salāt but many find it challenging to achieve the spirituality and presence of heart which makes the salāt an act of soaring to the Lord. This course will look at fiqhī (jurisprudential) and ‘irfāni (spiritual) aspects of salāt with the aim of offering prayers to get us closer to the Creator. The course will also provide guidance on the basic rules of preparing and saying prayers correctly.

Many of us know Hadith of the Masumeen (a) about food and the nutritional habits such as having a pinch of salt before and after a meal, not drinking with our meals, chewing our food well, keeping 1/3 of our stomachs empty and more.

ALI 269: Keeping Healthy in the month of Holy Ramadhān
Whilst the main focus of fasting in the Holy Month of Ramadhan is to benefit from its spiritual, ethical and social aspects, it is also important to pay special attention towards the effect that fasting may have on the health of the individual especially as we approach the hot summer months where fasts are also longer in duration. By minimizing the physical and health challenges of the person fasting, one may be able to focus and concentrate more on the spiritual and religious benefits of this great holy month. This 90 minute course will focus on: a) The relationship between health and fasting  b) The importance of healthy eating habits especially during long fasts c) The adjustments needed in people who may already be suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease etc.
