We offer classes in an academic semester style schedule.

​Course Description:

Instructor: Muhammed Xhemali

Dates: Starting December 13th

Time/Days of week: Mondays at 7:15PM

In this course, Muhammad Xhemali will explain Imam Nawawi’s Forty Hadith, using classical commentaries and a wide range of reference works in Islamic scholarship. The importance of the 40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi cannot be over-emphasized. Each hadith is based on a foundational principle of Islam. Each hadith showcases the beauty of the comprehensive words of our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). This collection has been recognized, accepted, and appreciated by Muslim scholars for the last seven centuries. This course will clarify for the student, the meanings, beauty, and guidance in these central Prophetic sayings, which Imam Nawawi selected as being hadiths around which the message of Islam revolves.
