Sh. Abdullah Hakim Quick joins AlMaghrib Institute

AlMaghrib Institute is the new scholar monopoly! haha. Shaykh Muhammad AlShareef writes:

Allahu akbar!

This annoucement for me is like when your local sports team announces that one of the greatest players in the game is now going to be wearing your jersey. (My heart is beating fast right now with excitment)

When I was very young, little kid in a Masjid in Winnipeg, the uncles gathered the youth together for a lecture from this vising speaker from Toronto. I loved his lecture, and I was so impressed that he was using names and terms that I, as a kid, was familiar with. (come to think of it, that may be the first time I was exposed to that style, it became my style years later). It was sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick.

Recently, I’ve been to a half dozen or so conferences with sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick was also one of the speakers. I find that when there is a crowded room at these conferences and you are looking for someone familiar, someone comfortable, someone you know you can enjoy your evening sitting beside and discussing things with … I will always gravitate to sh.Abdullah Hakim Quick (and alhamdulillah, I hope I’ve read it correctly, he also enjoys my company in the same way. At least I hope so, lol.)

Here is his bio:

Abdullah Hakim Quick was born in the United States and accepted Islam in Canada in 1970. He graduated from the College of Da‘wah and Usul al-Din at the Islamic University of Medina in 1979. He obtained an M.A. and a PhD in African history at the University of Toronto, where he examined the life of the West African scholar and social activist, Usman Dan Fodio A. H. Quick has been a teacher and counsellor in Canada, the United States, and the West Indies. He has travelled to more than 55 countries around the world teaching and doing research.

Currently, he is Senior Lecturer at The True Dawn Institute and a member of the Muslim Judicial Council. He is also Director of the Discover Islam Centre in Cape Town, South Africa

You have seen him on TV: Islam channel, Huda TV, Peace TV.
You have seen him in conferences the world over: Canada, USA, UK, Dr.Zakir’s conference in India, Australia.

And now, you will get to learn from him from the comfort of your AlMaghrib chairs!

Words can’t express the enormous effect that this event has had upon me. In fact I’m actually working on a new project which will be released soon. InshaAllah, I hope they release the videos for public viewing.

Sh. Abdullah Hakim Quick from South Africa made a surprise appearance and he made the closing dua, but before he did, they had all the scholars and speakers come up on stage. I recorded it:

Obama’s Iftar

I wonder what the food was.

The other day President Obama issued a special message to the Muslim world for the annual Ramadan holiday. Tonight, before leaving Wednesday for the rest of his stay-cation at Camp David, the president hosts a White House banquet to celebrate the same holiday.

Invited guests include three Cabinet secretaries, numerous diplomats, five members of Congress including the first Muslim, Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and the chief of the Palestine Liberation Organization mission.

Here is the list of invited guests, as provided by the White House:

A WOMAN who won over £1.9 million ($3.67 million) as a teenager says she never should have been allowed to spend her fortune at such a young age.

Callie Rogers, 22, won the lottery when she was 16 years old and proceeded to go on a “never-ending spending spree”, News Of The World reports.

The second-youngest British person to win lotto spent the money on booze, two boob jobs and almost $500,000 of cocaine.

About $400,000 was spent on a family holiday while a large amount was also spent on a string on boyfriends.

When she won the million-dollar prize, she was earning almost $7 as a shelf stacker for her local supermarket. Now she lives at home with her mum.

“I honestly wish I’d never won the lottery money – and knowing what I know now I should have just given it all back to them,” Ms Rogers told News Of The World.

SubhanAllah! She made it big but yet it was taken all away from her within a short period of time. Now she wishes she never even won the money.

“We can eat from Ahlul Kitab (People of the Book)”

The people of the book do not slaughter their meat like this:

Share this with all our “AK” brothers and sisters, inshaAllah. The video was taken of a Hatchery in Iowa owned and operated by Hy-Line. You can read the full article on the Huffington Post.

It is also very said to see that many Muslim countries are distrubuting their meat such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iran, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Morocco, Uganda, Nigeria, Senegal, Tunisia, Jordan and others. The full list can be seen here.
