An introduction to Shia Studies

The World Federation is pleased to have completed a successful pilot project, which delivered two online courses, over a period of 12 weeks.

Led by experts with many years of teaching experience, the courses focused on two subjects: 1)   Qur'anic Sciences (Ulum al Quran)  by Shaykh Abbas Jaffer and 2)   Ḥadith  by Shaykh Kumail Rajani. The courses gave community members the opportunity to gain Islamic knowledge from the comfort of their homes.

We'd like to thank everyone who showed interest in the courses - over 30 people from 12 different jamaats participated and the feedback they gave back was extremely positive.

The Feedback 

We sent out a feedback survey to all the participants and we are proud to say that we received lots of encouraging comments!

Some comments included:

"Shaykh goes into enough detail without actually overloading the lecture. The balance is very good. He is very encouraging as well."

"Shaykh Rajani is extremely enthusiastic and engaging. He provides well researched examples and content relevant to ensure all understand the subject matter thoroughly. Shaykh Abbas Jaffer shared wonderful content and a precise understanding related to the sciences of the Holy Quran."

"I truly enjoyed both classes and learned a great deal. I will continue to tackle both subjects in an ongoing manner as there is much to learn after this introduction within both the areas of Quran and Hadith."

Coming Soon

We are planning to build on the success of this pilot project and would really like to hear your thoughts and ideas on future courses. Please spend a few minutes completing the survey link below.
