About this course-module • Notwithstanding, the essential spirit in learning at this “intermediate” level is the inculcation of “ADAB” as faithfully practised in traditional learning circles and Madrasah. • One current Muslims’ approach to learning which we have highlighted and criticised thus hoping to avoid is : “Their learning Islam as a subject.” All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  7. 7. About this course-module • Notwithstanding, the essential spirit in learning at this “intermediate” level is the inculcation of “ADAB” as faithfully practised in traditional learning circles and Madrasah. • One current Muslims’ approach to learning which we have highlighted and criticised thus hoping to avoid is : “Their learning Islam as a subject.” • We believe it should be subjecting oneself to Islam, insha-Allah.

  8. 8. About this course-module • We have already conducted (at intermediate level) all these three modules previously .–and is commencing the cycle again for those who may have missed it. • Also, this is to provide students from the recently concluded Beginners Course on Islam to proceed to this “Intermediate Level”.

  10. 10. About this course-module • As in all our approach in Education we seek to provide adequate and satisfactory exposure regarding Islam and their nurturing as adults, mostly to new Muslims (converts/reverts), and in the English language, who may have been from other faith/system, etc. – All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  11. 11. About this course-module • As in all our approach in Education we seek to provide adequate and satisfactory exposure regarding Islam and their nurturing as adults, mostly to new Muslims (converts/reverts), and in the English language, who may have been from other faith/system, etc. – • Therefore, our curriculum may not necessarily be similar to what (born)Muslims here have been exposed to in the Malay language.

  12. 12. About this course-module • Yet, in as much it can benefit new Muslim, we have long realized that this curriculum in fact is what every young English speaking Muslims here need.

  14. 14. COMMENTS AND TESTIMONIALS Extracted from some comments, reflections and feedback of participant who attended previous run of this module All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  15. 15. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants “Thank you for the lesson Ustadh. I use to think, upon seeing how some Muslims will foolishly dispute and contend over certain theological matters and making both themselves and the question look silly and unimportant in the act itself, that the answers to the questions may not be wholly important. But following your lessons, however…. #A All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  16. 16. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants “(however) it…. has taught me that the distinction in the different conceptions of the understanding of God is very much significant, yet should never be made a subject to wrangle about; my guess of its significance is that, a Muslim may never attain to Certainty with the wrong conception of the understanding of God… #A All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  17. 17. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants “Another takeaway was the slides Ustadh showed on the discoveries of modern science, which empirical as it may be, has discovered the exacting conditions for the existence of life. This should be an even greater push for mankind to reflect on the purpose of his life and find his place in the ordered and harmonious cosmological setting he finds himself in. Wallahu A’lam. #A All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  18. 18. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants “Jazakallah khayr ya Ustadh. Your lessons are of paramount importance, and I am unsure if I can ever be grateful enough for them. May Allah bless and preserve you, and your family.” #A All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  19. 19. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants To me, the biggest take away point here is: sure, Islam has rules, Islam has regulations and certain rituals we need to do. But if we spend our whole life following every single rule to the letter, doing every single ritual to the letter, yet, if our hearts are filled with pride, and we don’t do it because of Allah but to raise yourself above others...then in the end, it will all count for nothing… #B All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  20. 20. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants … So takeaway is; know the rules, know the regulations, but don't just stop at learning how to do something. Learn why we need to do it, what is the objective? And most importantly, we must always, always be humble and sincere. If we are sincere and humble in our submission to Allah, Insya Allah, with His Infinite Mercy, He will forgive our sins and bless us with Jannah. #B All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  21. 21. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Thanks ustaz for this class. I see this class as an essential one, because there is so much confusion in our community about this matter such that in the end, the real knowledge of these things are lost, firstly, and we waste too much time on accusing others rather than doing other beneficial things, secondly. Our gratitude thus to ustaz for “de-fusing the confusion.” #C All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  22. 22. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants This approach to learning Tauhid is really helpful to me. Because it allows me to see clearly how is it that in other religious communities, their admittance that God is One is insufficient to reach the actual meaning of Tauhid, which I see as “The Pure Oneness of God”, which only Islam has, and in which other religions fall short of. #D All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  23. 23. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants This is probably the reason that it is said in a hadith that “The key to paradise is La ilaha illallah.” And to me, only Islam teaches this phrase in its true, pure and perfect form. Wallahu ‘alam. #D All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  24. 24. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Perhaps it is partly due to the ‘curse’ of the IT generation in the era of fitan we live in, where Sheikh Google and overwhelming information is abound and we are ‘indoctrinated’ to have a “why this and that?” mentality. Don’t get me wrong… it is not that Islam frowns upon questioning (it is a religion for the intellects); rather it is the manner and what is being questioned that reflects the adab and level of gratitude of a Believer, which the earlier generations have and our’s lack, wa-Allahu a’lam! #E All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  25. 25. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants … It dawned on me why Ustaz spoke about putting ‘aql (the rational mind) in its proper place and how he cautioned us about causes of wrong thinking, information is not knowledge, etc. in earlier lessons. Why? In this lesson, Ustaz said that doubt is not knowledge but admission of ignorance due to the limitation of the mind. This is an important point. #E All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  26. 26. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants Why? Uncertainty of reality led many astray because ignorance may inadvertently lead to shirk, which reflects being zulm (unjust) to the self! Ustaz reminded us about the imminent reality via QS al-Isra’ 17: 36 – “Do not follow anything, which you have no knowledge of. Verily, [your] hearing and sight and heart – all of them – will be called to account for it [on Judgment Day]”. #E All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
  27. 27. Testimonials & feedback by previous participants “This class at times resembles the science lessons we learnt in school, except that it always lead to the obvious conclusion of God’s existence. Science can explain the “what” and the “how” but this lesson on Tauheed not only acknowledges the “what” and the “how”, but guides our mind to the obvious conclusion of the “why” – as the proof of Divine wisdom – not meaningless random-chance.” Thank you Ustaz. #F All Rights Reserved © Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2014 )
