* Shaykh Dr. Muhammad bin Yahya Al-Husayni An-Ninowy was born and raised in Syria. He began his study under his father, Sayyed Yahya (Rahimahu Allah), and many of the senior scholars of Aleppo at the time, memorizing the Glorious Qur’an and acquiring knowledge in many of the Islamic disciplines, such as Tawheed, Hanafi/Shafi’i Fiqh, Usool, and Ihsaan

Besides graduating from the Faculty of Usul-ud-Din at Al- Azhar University, Shaykh Dr. Muhammad delved further into the fields of Hadeeth and Ihsaan under the tutelage of many of the foremost scholars worldwide, who resided in Syria, Hijaz, Morocco, Egypt, and others.

Shaykh Ninowy has established a global network of Madina Institutes which all strive to carry the same message. Shaykh Muhammad focuses on reviving the call to Deen with a Back to Basics approach i.e. the Qur’an and Authentic Sunnah, in addition to teaching tolerance, peace and compassion. Shaykh Muhammad is the senior-in-residence scholar at Madina Masjid and institute in Atlanta, Georgia since 2000. He has authored many books in the science of Tawheed, Hadith, and Usul, some of which are being translated into English and published, such as: The concept of Bid’a and its application, Nisf-Sha’ban virtues in the authentic Sunnah, Hadithi commentary on the Shamaa’el of Imam Tirmidhi, Explanation of the Nukhba Text in Hadith sciences, Explanation of the Al Fiyyah in Hadith terminology, Hadithi commentary on Imam Nasa’iy’s Khasaa’es, Expressing Delight for the birth of the Light, and more

Shaykh Muhammad is the founding director of “Planet Mercy” and Madina Institute & Seminary in the UK, South Africa, and Canada, and the USA. Shaykh Muhammad also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mircobiology from the University of Illinois and a Doctor of Medicine degree. Some of Shaykh Muhammad’s lectures can be viewed on: www.madinainstitute.org.

We don’t want to just do the same ‘ole thing!

Why Can’t We All Just Unite on Eid?

Unity. We all need it. We all desire it. Without it, we have division, and in many cases, anger and conflict.

We pray in the same direction. We keep the same five obligatory prayers. We fast the same month. We all perform the same hajj. And the more we learn, the more we realise that in each of those matters we perform as a united body, there are clear variations.

There are valid scholarly differences of opinion on when the time for Asr prayer starts. There are differences of opinion of when the time for the throwing of stones at the jamarat starts each day during the days of tashreeq in Hajj. There are differences of opinion of when a person’s wudu would be invalidated during tawaf. There are even established differences of opinion on the start and end of the hijri months.

Habib Kadhim al-Saqqaf Melbourne Tour – Day 2 – Thursday 4 August 10:02pm

What a recitation last night of the famous Burda poem composed by Imam al-Busiri, the brilliant poet and true lover of the Messenger of Allah. Habib Kadhim attended the gathering which is usually held weekly. A powerful rendition of a poem that is oozing with love of the Best of Creation.

Habib Kadhim spoke about the story behind its composition, including:

  • the paralysis of half of the body of Imam al-Busiri
  • al-Busiri’s seeking the intercession of the Messenger of Allah to be granted recovery from his paralysis
  • how the Burda was written with love, and it has surpassed so many other poems in praise of the Prophet of Allah because of the poet’s connection with the Beloved

A recording of his talk at the Burda recitation will be made available here as well. Come back in a few hours time.

Habib Kadhim al-Saqqaf Melbourne Tour – Day 1 – Thursday 3 August 6:15pm

After a jam packed schedule for Habib Kadhim’s events in Sydney, we are now in Melbourne. We were honoured to be given a tour at the Islamic Museum of Australia immediately after leaving Melbourne Airport Thursday afternoon.

Habib Kadhim was amazed by the ihsan and excellence in design and exhibition. He was deeply interested as he walked inside the Museum and prayed for its continued benefit to others and success. 

At the Museum, he spoke about the importance of khidma and benefiting others in the community, particularly in the da’wah to Allah. The entire Sydney entourage was present, as well as our local Melbournians. About 60 volunteers were present, and they all did a superb job.

Habib Kadhim spoke about how Habib Umar was once found sweeping the musallah in the Ribat in Shihr, with the rest of the teachers. When Habib Kadhim asked Habib Umar to take a rest from that khidma, Habib Umar insisted that he continue sweeping. This was the love that the pious scholars have for being in the service of others.

We are now going to have a quick rest, then get ready for the recitation of the Burda this evening. Habib Kadhim will be delivering his first public talk in Melbourne during the Burda gathering.

I am really looking forward to an amazing tour. And the Melbourne khidma team is top notch. They are organised, full of impeccable adab (manners), and a joy to be around. A big shout out to Hussein Foladkar for being so gracious in his leading the way today.

I hope to keep you updated as we progress through the tour. 

Here is a recording of Habib Kadhim’s amazing talk to the volunteers of the tour, delivered at the Islamic Museum of Australia – on 3 August 2017.
