What is tawassul? why is it a controversial topic?
Is it shirk? what constitutes shirk?
Muslims often come across such questions and often have no point of reference to provide an answer. Most Muslims simply follow what theyve heard or which speaker/writer can best articulate his/her point. Lacking objectivty and understanding of the principles and maxims of Islamic religious thought and practice the result is an incorrect and precarious understanding.
Mawlid is bid’ah! it is bid’ah to have prayer beads!
Then there comes the accusation of misguidance, blasphemy and heresy for those who carry out certain practices that exist around the Muslim world. We will provide a clear discourse on how actions are categorised in Islam. The conecpt of bid’ah (innovation) along with sunnah and related matters will be presented.
Each topic will be addressed in an in depth and structured manner. The aim is to provide all participants the principles and sources which explain and define for all Muslims what is and what is not acceptable in Islam. No confusion should remain after attending this seminar.
