Wikileaks & The Muslim Mind: A Free Live Event by SunniPath

Wikileaks & The Muslim Mind!

The controversial whistle-blowing website, Wikileaks, has had an enormous impact on the media while raising difficult questions related to ethics, transparency, and freedoms. For contemporary Muslims such questions are not only important with regard to Wikileaks, but they highlight broader challenges associated with living in an age of information as opposed to an age of knowledge. Join us this weekend as we discuss some of these important issues and possible solutions.

Join us this Saturday, to continue this discussion with Shaykh Hamza Karamali and Shaykh Qays Arthur.

About Our Teachers

Shaykh Qays Arthur

A native of guyana with a mixed ancestral heritage, Ustadh Qays Arthur's commitment to education began in his country where after preliminary studies there and in the Middle East, he taught in mosques across the country, directed education programs, and worked with various interfaith and non-governmental organizations. Leaving to pursue more intensive study overseas, Ustadh Qays now brings his knowledge, passion, and sincerity to the courses he teaches for SunniPath and Dar Al Tawfiq. Concurrently, he regularly attends classes of Fiqh, Aqidah, and Arabic in Amman, where he lives with his family.

“I pray that Allaah put Baraaka and Rahma on Sunnipath, now Qibla, and it's employees. I hope Allaah gives me the chance to learn here and with Shaykh Qays.”
—Hector Lasprilla, Colombia

“The information shared by Sheikh Qays and Sheikh Hamza Karamali. The recorded lessons were excellent! And the amount of information shared by both instructors was excellent.”
—Andre Rishi, California, USA

 

Shaykh Hamza Karamali

With a passion for creating "real scholarship," Shaykh Hamza Karamali himself is a reflection of this type of scholarship with his comprehensive knowledge of all the Islamic disciplines, sensitivity to the modern context, and eloquence.

Shaykh Hamza has been studying the Islamic sciences with leading scholars for over ten years. He has received personal instruction in the disciplines of theology, Islamic law, legal maxims, Sufism, hadith, tafsir, legal methodology, hadith methodology, logic, Arabic grammar, Arabic morphology, Arabic rhetoric, Arabic lexicology, tajwid, and the canonical recitations of the Quran. He has memorized the Quran, as well as versified technical manuals of several religious disciplines.

He has applied his uniquely comprehensive religious training and his deep familiarity with Western thought and culture to developing the four main SunniPath curricula: Foundations, Seekers, Miftah, and Sibawayh. He is admired by his students for his dedication, motivational speaking, eloquence, and teaching skills.

Shaykh Hamza writes frequently for the SunniPath Blog and SunniPath Answers Service, and his answers are famous for their depth and understanding. He is currently working on publishing a series of books for learning Arabic, a commentary on the creed of Imam Tahawi, and a contemporary commentary on the Waraqat of Imam al-Juwayni.

“Shaykh Hamza has a tremendous amount of taqwa. He has the right view about life. This is why this course was so successful. It's because of the way he is.”
—Naielah Ackbarali, Student, Damascus, Syria

“I loved Sheikh Hamza for his teaching style and his ability to explain complex issues in a way that is easy to understand and for also clarifying and guiding us towards what we really need to know rather than what we think we need to know. I also thank him and hope Allah blesses and rewards him, not only for the mountain of knowledge he was able to impart on us, but for the patience he showed in answering questions and giving advice. Jazakallahu khairan Sheikh Hamza.”
—Simon Dewar, IT Professional, Canberra, Australia
