Testimonials From Our Last Intensive

Hashim Zafar

This program was incredibly informative. Learning about the Prophet ﷺ, his character, physical attributes, humility, conduct with others, laughter and smiling was just an incredible way to spend a weekend. May Allah bless our teacher Shaykh Ismail.

Hoda Arif

Coming together as a community united in our eagerness to learn about the Prophet ﷺ was a beautiful experience that left my heart feeling clean and invigorated in its love for our Prophet ﷺ. 

Nadira Ibrahim

The Shama'il Intensive was one of the most moving intensives I have ever taken. The course did not only deepen my love for Rasulullah SaIlallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam but inspired me to strive harder to live in his blessed footsteps. Jazaka’allahu khair!
