With Shaykh Imadudeen Abu Hijleh
The discipline of Islamic belief has many names in Arabic. One of these names is usul al-din, which means, "the foundations of religion." In reality, this truly describes what Islamic belief is: the foundation of a Muslim's religion. If his belief is in trouble, then all other aspects of his religion are also in trouble; just as when a building's foundations are shaky, the entire structure is shaky. Because of this, the root cause for the lack of religious dedication and drive that many Muslims find within themselves is that they haven't established their foundations of Islamic belief properly. For this reason, this course is arguably the most important of all courses.
Our belief is the context of our lives—it is what gives our lives meaning. Through it, we understand where we came from, what we are doing here, and where we are going. By understanding both the key tenets of our faith and why we believe them, you will be able to give your life meaning and purpose. And by being able to have all your belief-related doubts, questions, and confusions answered, you will leave with a firm conviction in all the tenets of faith, and will find a fresh drive to learn your religion and draw closer to Allah Most High.
