The World Federation were invited to hold a stall at the Nahjul Balagha conference that took place on Sunday 29th September 2013 in Peterborough, UK.
We live in an age of paradox. There is no shortage of information and misinformation available on the Internet. Sometimes, even within the “safe spaces” which we go to for enlightenment, we become confused with “new” religious theories.
Today more than ever, we see the actualisation of the hadith:
عن أنس عن النبي (ص) أنه قال: «يأتي على الناس زمان الصابر منهم على دينه كالقابض على الجمرة
It has been narrated from Anas from the Prophet, prayers of Allah be upon him and his family, that he said, “A time will come upon humanity that remaining on their religion will be like holding hot coals in their hands.”
(Mustadrak al-Wasaail, vol. 12, pg. 33, tradition 1.)
Introducing STEPS – Shi‘i Theology, Ethics and Practice Series. The Islamic Education department of The World Federation aims to intellectually empower the community by providing easy-to-understand and comprehensive answers to pertinent issues. Watch the trailer video about this new initiative.
We aim to do this through a steady stream of videos, articles, and podcasts which will, Insha’Allah, help us to become better servants of Allah (swt) as we work towards the advent of Imam al-Mahdi (aj).
Every Friday we will be releasing videos and Podcasts and each series will have its own eBook for you to download and print for further reading. Click on the series below to start watching! (and reading!).
