The masjid is available for brothers and sisters to congregate and discuss various topics amongst themselves. As a part of the Religious Affairs committee, Dr. Walid Khayr is a longtime staple of the IFN community and offers his time with the brothers and sister every Sunday to discuss various portions of the Quran as well as other topics surrounding the community. This is then followed by a Question & Answer Session in the IFN Banquet Hall. The halaqa typically starts in the fall and finishes in May.
The program runs on the Sunday School Calendar and therefore classes will be held every Sunday at Islamic Foundation North in Libertyville, IL.
Dr. Walid Khayr has been committed to teaching life lessons and wisdom from the Quran for the past 14 years to the IFN Community. He is a Hafiz-al-Quran and a Scholar. He strongly believes in empowering the community and individuals to use the Quran as a guide, a relevant reference book, a letter to YOU from Allah - so that YOU can uncover the hidden treasures in each of the blessed verses of the Quran.
Do you still find yourself asking ... Why should I attend? How are his classes any different?
Well, let his students tell you why you should join us through our personal testimonies:
Dr. Khayr's Hope for you; Our Expectations for the Class:
In our first 2 sessions, we explored the Prophetic Model of answering the call to social discord. We looked at the social issues that were apparent in Madina and how the Prophet (SAWS) used the guidance of the Quran to approach and solve those problems.
Following are the links to the first 2 sessions of 2016-2017 Academic Year:
Session 1 - https://youtu.be/rQ0I46gltvo
Session 2 - https://youtu.be/yUQjYB1BPxI
With this knowledge we (the class) will take the prophetic lessons to set the framework for our academic year.
From Session 3 onwards we will dive deeply into Surah Al-Nur, where Allah (swt) addresses many of the social issues. We will use the Ayah's in Surah Al-Nur along with other references from the Quran to discover methods we can apply in our lives to help solve our own and current social issues.
