Arabic Immersion Course for Children and Women

After a successful pilot program for our Arabic Immersion Course last term, we are now taking enrolments for Term 4, 2020. Children were immersed in an Arabic environment of colours, shapes and games and had a total blast of fun. If you’re interested for your child, reach out to us ASAP!

The Advice – al-Wasiyyah – Poem by Imam Abdullah ibn Alawi al-Haddad taught by Shaykh Ahmed Abdo

My first dowrah (40 day intensive course) in Dar al-Mustafa back in 2005. I would sleep inside the room that would eventually be the same room I would study the Shafi’i fiqh manual Minhaj al-Talibeen of Imam al-Nawawi many years later.

It would be the same room which seemed to have been infested with bed bugs (aka baqq!) which not only would suck your blood, but also not allow you to sleep.

Each morning I would wake up and search for the culprit ‘baqq’ but couldn’t find where they were coming from.

It wasn’t until 40 days later, when I had to roll up my sleeping bag, that I found armies of ‘baqq’ warmly nested in the seams of the sleeping bag and inside the pillow case. I don’t think I had scratched so much and so hard before in my life.

The voice of the dedicated students and teachers who would walk around an hour before fajr waking us students up, with a loud and long ‘laaaaaaaaaa ilaaaaha illallaaaaaaaah….” and for those of us that wouldn’t wake up with that, a simple flick to the air conditioner (aka […]

Shaykh Mazen Ahram (from Masjid al-Aqsa, Palestine) Sydney Tour 5-9 March 2020

This event has now ended

I met Shaykh Mazen Ahram from Masjid al-Aqsa on his previous visit to Sydney in 2018. Our Sacred Links group visited the Shaykh in Zawiyah at Masjid al-Aqsa in April 2019. He took us for a breathtaking tour on our night of arrival into Quds, pointing out the most amazing places in Masjid al-Aqsa.


We met him again at Masjid al-Khalil, wherein lies the resting place of Sayyidinā Ibrāhīm alayhissalam.

Now he is visiting Sydney and it’s time to revive the legacy of Masjid al-Aqsa, what it stands for, its place in our Islamic history, and the fact that therein is the ONLY place on terrestrial earth that has a direct opening to the heavens!

Whilst many of us consider and end up going to Umrah, visiting Makkah and Madinah, only few seriously consider Masjid al-Aqsa and its surrounds.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be in the company of a living scholar who was born, raised and educated in the Islamic sciences within the old city of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa.
