Holistic Community Learning

The Sakinah Institute’s mission is to create a vibrant community firmly rooted in sound traditional sacred knowledge with a particular emphasis on spirituality. The aim is to provide a holistic learning experience for the whole community.

Prophetic Approach to Trials and Tribulations

We often find ourselves in trying and precarious situations when dealing with trials and tribulations. But there is no better way to to understand our difficulties than in light of the life of the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Every month, Nihal Khan takes us into his life to learn how he dealt with trials and tribulations throughout his life. Learn more about Nihal Khan here.

Sufism (Tasawwuf), the path of spiritual purification, is the essence of Islam. Ironically, misunderstandings regarding it remain prevalent. This class will explore Sufism and the traits of its true people. Any claims that contradict these qualities have no authentic connection with Sufism. The text for this class is authored by Al-Habib Umar bin Hafiz and translated by Ustadh Amjad Tarsin. Ustadh Amjad will be teaching this class.

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to create a spiritual space that is accessible and welcoming to all. The Sakinah Institute welcomes all to embark on the journey along the path of sacred learning that is embedded in the unbroken chain of scholarship back to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

Our vision is to organically grow a dynamic Muslim community and to create an environment that is conducive to the spiritual, mental and physical well-being of our community.

Our Goals

Our goals are to InshAllah provide programming and events that nourish the soul but at the same time raise the level of education and consciousness of our deen in the community.

We truly believe that a successful educational model is one that incorporates the whole community. That includes individuals and families.
