Imam Said Bin Yunus, Chaplain Amany Shalaby, and Imam Abdul Karim Pinckney have collaborated to build this corner of virtual learning. Here you can deepen your understanding of our Sufi tradition and acquire knowledge of the Holy Qur’an, the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and the deeper meanings of the pillars of our faith, as taught to us by our guide Sidi.
Even though none of these four humble servants of Allah consider themselves among those who have reached the degree of scholar, we consider them all to be the most knowledgeable of our community and we greatly appreciate their wisdom, sincerity and love, and there willingness to serve and be a source of knowledge for our community.
