A 6 month course with a prominent scholar covering a text by Habib Muhammad ibn ‘Abdillah al-Haddar
This work, the author contextualises the principles and insights of Imam al-Ghazali’s Ihya Ulum al-Din in modern times, and provides great guidance for Muslims. It is his first work to have been translated into English for the benefit of non-Arabs.
The Dar al-Zahra (UK) logo incorporates the three fundamentals that are at the core of its work: Knowledge, Practice, Teaching (Dawa).
The chain within the dome represents the chain of transmission from teacher to student under the umbrella of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his blessed family. (Knowledge)
The chain also represents the womb of a women, and includes the fallopian tubes and uterus. This womb is pointing to the heavens in acknowledgement that it is connected to a higher purpose. (Knowledge)
The chain also represents the leaves of a tree with it being firmly established upon the roots of knowledge represented by an open book baring three pages, the page of Islam, Iman and Ihsān. Ihsan being the most inner and highest form of knowledge. (Knowledge)
The seeds that are falling from the womb represent the knowledge that flows from a women in the form of practice and teaching, as well as the knowledge that comes from a strong chain of transmission which firmly sets in motion the next generation of trees who in turn will give birth to their own seeds. The leaves also represent fertility, growth, life and fruition (Practice and Teaching)
All of this takes place under the protection of the dome which represents the source of the chain of transmission, the messenger of God whose dome points to the heavens, the qibla of the soul.
The crescent moon represents new beginnings and the renewal of intentions of the soul as it ascends towards its purpose and goal.
