One of the most popular and effective series for teaching the basics about Islam. These lectures are meant to provide a comprehensive overview of the religion and world of Islam for non-Muslims. The classroom style presentation covers five main areas: the Holy Qur’an, basic practices, core beliefs, spirituality and the end of time.
Hamza Yusuf, a European-American convert fluent in Arabic and gifted with a vast knowledge of Islam, presents the material in a style that is unique to most of his other lectures since he is speaking to non-Muslim academics. Although he focuses on the basic teachings, his deeper exploration of the subject results in a series which any non-Muslim, new Muslim or life-long Muslim can appreciate and benefit from. These lectures are essential for any person or organization seeking to educate others about the true teachings of Islam.
