How many times do we recite Surah Fatihah each day? As the opening to the Quran, this surah holds many virtues that are many times unappreciated. With Ustadh Nihal Khan, join us in a weekly class that will take us deep into the surah and its themes, meanings, and virtues. Registration is required and the class will take place on Zoom.
Social and Spiritual Book Club
Sakinah Institute hosts a monthly book club meeting. Members of the community enjoy sharing their favorite passages and reflections. The book club is currently meeting virtually on Zoom. Register below to get all the details for upcoming meetings! Ustadh Kaisar Aslam is leading the book club!
In 2019, we completed Our Master Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, his Sublime Character & Exalted Attributes : Vol 1 by Shaykh 'Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni. In 2020, we completed Lost Islamic History by Firas Alkhateeb.
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 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.
