Bidayat al-Hidayah

Bidayat al-Hidayah - The Beginning of Guidance

Imam Khalid Hussein (Leicester)

Session 2 - 2nd July 2011 at 3:45pm [Do check back incase of any changes, we will also send an email so ensure that you are on our mailing list]

This class has replaced the class which was going to cover al-Wassiyah of Imam al-Haddad.

Publishers description of the text:

Imam Ghazali’s Bidayat al-Hidaya is a highly motivational manual detailing the fundamentals of acquiring guidance through God-consciousness (taqwa). Imam Ghazali argues that just as there is an end to this noble objective there is also a beginning to it, which must be made firm for one to achieve success. He then goes on to expound the fundamentals of this “beginning.” While being concise and to-the-point the manual is laid out in the form of a detailed daily timetable providing the reader strong inspiration and much heart-rending counsel. The three sections of this book are on obedience, refraining from disobedience, and the etiquette of companionship with the Creator and with creation. One of Imam Ghazali’s final works, it embodies a lifetime of learning, experience, and spirituality and can be taken as an introduction to his larger works.

[Note for sisters: The room in which the class takes place is not a designated prayer area.]


Castlefield Mosque, 103 Rutland Avenue, High Wycombe, HP12 3JQ

The Wassiyah of Imam al-Haddad

The Wassiyah of Imam al-Haddad

 Imam Khalid Hussein (Leicester)

Note: This class has been replaced by Bidayat al-Hidayah

 The “Exhortation” of Imam al-Haddad or al-Ba’iyya

 As the title suggests, the “Exhortation” of Imam al-Haddad is a poem containing advice for the spiritual wayfarer seeking to reach Allah. It is one of a number of similar poems of advice which Imam al-Haddad wrote and is also called al-Ba’iyya, as each verse ends with the Arabic letter ba’. Al-Habib Ahmad ibn Zayn al-Habashi, student of Imam al-Haddad and author of a commentary on the poem, described it as being amongst the best, most beneficial and most comprehensive of the Imam’s exhortations.

We have an article on our blog which goes through some of the lines of the poem, this can be found here.

During the eight weeks, students were introduced to a variety of traditional Islamic arts with a focus on calligraphy. At the end of the course students organised an exhibition displaying their work for the local community. The event also included a short talk by Razwan where he praised the students for their hard work, creativity and determination, and students also spoke about how much they had enjoyed the course and looked forward to the follow up one.
