The Compass of the Traveller

We are proud to launch a comprehensive and innovative new weekly course designed to help Muslims living in the west redirect their daily focus back to Allah (swt).

The Compass of the Traveller was designed and will be taught by our Teacher Shaykh Sulayman Van Ael.  The course will provide detailed and practical steps on how to approach the various challenges and difficulties we face in our busy worldly lives.  The spiritual void and lack of direction and focus are common ailments for many Muslims regardless of their role in society.  The course, based on the Quran and the Sunnah of our Beloved (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam), provides regular opportunities for the student to develop their reflective practice and develop action-orientated remedies for their unique circumstances and challenges. 

The Compass of the Traveller will be delivered term time (which attendees can opt in at any time as they take place) in bitesize modules each discussing important aspects of the Deen allowing participants to develop a deeper knowledge of the integrals of Islam.

Launch Sunday 12th Sept - 10am-12pm 

Cost per term: £20 (in person), £30 online, or free via our Bursary option

Target Audience: Age 12+ to Adult. Families who wish to navigate their way to their Lord & Creator Allah in a meaningful and practical way, through the teachings of our Master Muhammad (SAW). 

An important aspect of Islamic traditional teaching has always been to physically sit with the scholars, righteous people and students of knowledge.  It is with this in mind we implore all students to make the effort to attend in person and benefit from the uplifting social aspect of the classes.
