Throughout the my courses with Al-Shafi’e Institute, I learned about the fundamental things in Islamic knowledge, I realised the importance of them and that there are many more things to learn about our beautiful religion, Allah and His Prophet.

My learning experience with Shaykh Ali Ahmed in all his courses was not just on theory but practical. I truly treasure the study of the science of Hadith and Seerah of the Prophet. Alhumdulillah I managed to memorize Surah Al-Mulk by the end of the course after knowing its virtue!

Taking the 3 and 6 months programs has definitely helped me understand Islam in a wider perspective. It changed the way I view everyday life and to be better in every aspect as a Muslim. Not only we were trained to be a good student of knowledge but Sheikh Ali really motivated his students into putting knowledge in practice by taking up community projects to contribute and help build a better ummah.
