Re: Torch Bearers: testimonials and ambiance

Alhamdullilah, the seminar was a great experience and I learned alot. Many thanks to Sheikh Waleed, the Ijaazah is a rare and precious gift, and the classes were awesome (so was the binder and bookmark)! Looking forward to taking more classes in the future, inshallah.

hats off to Qabeelat Tayybah for the hospitality!

My hope now is that Allah gives me the ability to keep this knowledge alive, that we pass it on and contribute to the revival of the sunnah. Know that this requires effort, struggle with yourself and never forget to make duaa.

Re: Torch Bearers: testimonials and ambiance

Masha Allah! This was an absolutely amazing course! I thought that ...oh we're going to learn about history - its going to be dry and prepare to do a lot of writing!
Not so! I was so wrong.

I felt as if I was taken back in time - in awe - of the stories I heard, the lives of these scholars who I never heard of before and the legacy they left for us. Masha Allah.

Sh Waleed brought these scholars "to life" in our minds though his worderful art of storytelling. I enjoyed every moment of it and am grateful to Allah for this opportunity.

Jazzak Allahu khairan Sh Waleed for taking the time to make this couse special for us. Setting the stage for the scholars from India with the spicy samosas, the kurta you wore. Bringing the pefumes, the books, the clothes. You thought of everything. It was a wonderful experience - and we appreciate it.


May Allah reward you and all those who helped to make this course a success. I love the binders!

Re: Torch Bearers: testimonials and ambiance

One of the best classes I have done so far. I enjoyed all the stories, I could relate better to that of Ibn Hajar and Fatimah Sarmaqandiyah. Amazing two weeks. And the ijazah bit was the best part of it all. I have an ijazah, it's my first ever lol, hopefully it will motivate me to go out there and get some more. Sheikh Waleed rocks definetly.

Re: Torch Bearers: testimonials and ambiance

that was the AWESOMEST Class subhanAllah... More then anything im just soooo impressed at the amount of time and energy that went by Shaykh Waleed... This class was honestly planned down to the detail and im more then anything i am now even more excited for having Shaykh Waleed as VP..makes me wonder where he will take AlMaghrib!

Ive learnt so many lesssons...not just from the content, but the importance of putting ihsaan into anything you start ..( ya'll GOTTA take the class to know what i am talking about)..Shaykh Waleed your planning to the details didnt go unpassed the students thats all the ppl are talking about...samosa's/standing on Chairs..holding hands with 50 ppl and aromatic room!

i really feel like this class was so important for me to learn how to live as a muslimah and how to step up my game and on how i could become a torch bearer myself!

DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS CLASS!

Re: Torch Bearers: testimonials and ambiance

Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmutulah

This was a truly beneficial and inspiring class, alhumdullilah. I was really looking forward to this class and I wanted to understanding the personalities and characters of these great individuals and what they did to reach the highest they can in this world and the next.

Alhumdullilah, I have been inspired by these incredible scholars and to be like them who have also come after the Prophet Muhammed SAW and who have done their best to spread the Sunnah and follow the correct way of the Quran and hadiths and following the righteous of the Sahabah. Mashallah, by learning about the lives of these scholars, it has helped develop my understanding of how to follow the way of the Quran and Sunnah as a Muslim who has come after the Sahabah.

It is inspiring to learn how they were approachable to everybody, their keen taqwa of all their affairs before Allah, and their devoted ibadah in the day and night, made me realize how important time is to remember Allah and be close to Him as much as possible. I realize their strength and inspiration has come from Allah because of how careful they were of their time on earth and their loyal devotion.

This class softens the heart, sets your priorities strait and launches you into action. It was great hearing motivating stories of the Torch Bearers of Islam, how they struggled sooo much just to preserve Islam. They wen't out on a limb out of love for their people and love for Allah, they did so much!

When you hear about how the Scholars aspired to be so much it's inspiring! Not only did they WANT, they took ACTION. They stood up in the ugly face of injustice and fitnah, they became humbled with knowledge and gave up so much on the path to Jannah inshaAllah.

Their stories are truly motivating an uplifting! For example, To hear that a 60 year old woman didn't just give up and wait for death in a palace, she stood up and took a more dignified route.

She proceeded to Makkah and made her own living, the people of Makkah didn't find out until after her death that she was the Daughter of a King, the wife of two kings, the mother of two kings, the sister of a king and the grandmother of a king. Truly, The Cream of Royalty.

This class will take you on a journey through the lives of the scholars of Islam and you will feel as if they are right in front of you. Allahu Akbar, from poverty to wealth, from youth to old age, from nation to nation, from culture to culture, from the sharpest memories to the best handwriting... you will find this class nothing short of descriptive and amazing.
