TO PROPAGATE THE ACQUISITION
OF TRADITIONAL SACRED KNOWLEDGE
Essential Islam is an independent non-profit organisation, with 100% of all profit invested back into our projects and publications.
WHO WE ARE
We do not call to our own way, nor do we have our own new agenda. We are from the Ahl as-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah in belief and we are the followers of the Great Imam, Abu Hanifa (Allah shower His Mercy upon him), in our Fiqh.
We are focused on strengthening the local and wider communities by creating opportunities and tackling issues of disadvantage and exclusion.
FOCUSED ON RESULTS
OUR GROUNDBREAKING WORK
WE ARE DEDICATED TO BRINGING ABOUT REAL AND LASTING CHANGE AND
FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE AND
COMMUNITIES THRIVE AND FLOURISH IRRESPECTIVE OF CIRCUMSTANCES.
Alhamdulillah! Since our inception we have been actively involved with our official charity partner SKT WELFARE to help enrich the lives of some of world's poorest communities by helping to relieve some of their suffering. Most notably we were involved in facilitating thousands of food aid packs during the worst floods to hit Pakistan in 2010. We have also been involved with raising funds and awareness since the beginning of the Syrian Crisis, where collectively we have raised in excess of £2,000,000.
The key to the success and triumph of the Muslim Ummah unequivocally lies in Sacred Knowledge, which is why Islamic publications are a must in order to impart knowledge and wisdom. Only through studying the Sacred Knowledge may we increase the fear of Allah Most High in our hearts, and precisely emulate the exemplar of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and follow in the footsteps of the 'Ulama.
To date, we have released several articles covering many pertinent topics, and have been involved in two publications; 'The Essentials of Hajj and Umrah', and 'The Essentials of Fasting'. Insha'Allah we have plans for many more releases.
Courses and Events
The Ummah is currently suffering from intellectual poverty, and has lost its sense of civilisation. Only through reviving the tradition of learning and teaching in Islam will we regain our intellectual consciousness. Where a teacher represents the spring of knowledge and the exemplar of righteousness, the continuation of the glorious past, and the embodiment of the blessing and light of an unbroken chain of transmission.
To date, we have been honoured to host many courses and events where we have taught, without compromise and cover to cover, many leading classical texts.
The need for clear Islamic guidance is more prevalent than ever due to the times we live in, and it was for this reason we originally set up our Ifta department.
We have been involved with almost 1,000 fatwas since we began, where we have explained and clarified many pertinent issues.
