As a part of our continuing efforts to provide sound Islamic knowledge during the month of Ramadan, the Lamppost Education Initiative is pleased to present this special, Free online course with Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali: Renewing Faith in a Faithless World: A Study of Imam Tahawi’s Creed
Written more than 1000 years ago, the Creed of Imam Tahawi has long served as the manual encapsulating the core beliefs of Sunni and other Muslims. With the world plunging deeper into atheism, nihilism, materialism, chaos, and despair, the time is opportune for the reemergence of the teachings of divinity, sacredness, virtue, and faith. This course will cover the key three aspects of the Muslim creed: the divine attributes, prophethood, and the unseen. Come join us the Lamppost Education Initiative starting this Ramadan in a study of this gem of Islamic doctrine.
