The Essentials Curriculum

The Essentials is a modular, transformative educational program designed to bring Muslim adults closer to their creator. The Essentials aspires to re-package fard ‘ayn (individually obligatory) knowledge in a way that provokes deep reflection and a transformation in both the mindset and behaviour of students.

The Essentials also provides relevance through a number of contextual discussions including atheism, science, pluralism, extremism, Islamophobia, minority rights, the Internet, philosophy, and the modern culture of entertainment.

An evidence-based inquiry into the fundamental truths of Islam, based on rational and textual proofs. Understand what it means to be a believer, how to substantiate and experience the sweetness of Iman, and how to nurture Iman.
