  1. Shariah, Khilafah and Politics in the Light of Surah Yusuf Today there is often so much confusion between Shariah, Khilafah and politics, not just among non-Muslims but among Muslims too. There are some who call for "Shariah law" to be implemented in the UK and there are others who say one's Islam is not complete without the Khilafa or "Islamic state". There are yet others who say application of Shariah law and Khilafah are obsolete and the way to go forward for Muslims is through a democracy. So who is right and and how should one seek the correct solution? The solution can be found in Surah Yusuf - in the 'the best of stories'. When we look into the story of the Prophet Yusuf (AS), we find that the answers are not always black and white as some would have us believe but they depend on the time, place and condition. The amazing beauty of the story is that it covers every possible situation. Surah Yusuf provides a complete and comprehensive lesson in how to conduct oneself in any circumstance, whether one is free or oppressed; having authority or not; achieving an "Islamic state" or not; possessing power or in weakness; living among Muslims or non-Muslims; with the ability to implement Shariah law or not; no matter what our condition may be, the story of Yusuf (AS) will be relevant. The Prophet (SAW) followed the example of Yusuf (AS) not only when he and his companions were being oppressed and persecuted in Makkah prior to the Hijrah, but also after the Hijrah, when he returned to Makkah as the conqueror and the one in authority. The story of Yusuf (AS) also teaches us it is not Shariah Law or Khilafah or politics that matters the most but the soul of the religion - something very deep, universal and permanent, without which nothing has any value or importance. This shows us the power of this story and how important it is to understand it. Coming up this Ramadan is a detailed explanation of Surah Yusuf by one of the foremost scholars and thinkers of the Western world and an expert of both Hadith and Tafsir - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi. This is an unmissable seminar for everyone, young and old, men and women, students and scholars....

Buy your tickets now: http://courses.meoc.org.uk Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/310119099121919 A unique opportunity to study the amazing story of Yusuf (AS) this Ramadan whilst also learning the principles of understanding the Qur'an with an extraordinary scholar & teacher of our time, plus Ijaza for each student linking them to the Prophet (SAW) for listening to the recitation of certain parts of the Qur'an. "I recently attended the Tafsir of Surah Nuh. Whilst I had heard much about Shaykh Akram, this was my first class with him. The first thing that you cannot help but appreciate is how the Shaykh hooks you with his connection to knowledge, in a pure sense, there was no need to employ any speaking tactics to keep the attendees engrossed. The Shaykh, made every point relevant, to connect the text with our lives today and our response to get closer to our Creator. Indeed the Shaykh mentioned countless gems that he mentioned offhand but when contemplated on, really struck a chord in the heart. It was also great that the Shaykh was very open to questions, however sensitive, and tackled them head on, without compromising the principles of our faith, exemplifying that Allah azza wa jal has not only blessed him with knowledge, but also wisdom. I don't say this lightly, I genuinely believe, if you have the opportunity to study with the Shaykh, and you don't take it, then you have missed out on tasting the fruits of the knowledge of the Scholarship of our time and land" - Umer Suleman, South London More Testimonials (including videos): http://courses.meoc.org.uk/p/testimonials.html Wassalaam Cambridge Islamic Sciences Seminars London Muslim Education & Outreach Cambridge (MEOC) Tel: 07736 779448 / 01223 655223 Email: courses[at]meoc.org.uk
