Doubt and the Quest for Certainty
The secular age has shifted focus from the after-life to the worldly-life which not only resulted in a general decline in the belief in God but also led to the normalization and acceptance of doubt. Join us as we tackle these struggles and examine some methods that can be employed to reclaim certainty as articulated in the Quran.

Life without God – The Implications of Atheism
Theistic religions believe in the existence of God who they consider to be the source of morality and ethics, guiding the lives of its practitioners. The atheistic worldview in contrast denies the existence of any transcendental being and advance an understanding of the universe relying primarily on its material existence. What are specific implications and limitations of this materialistic worldview? And can we even understand morality when it’s untethered to a transcendent source?

Longing for the Divine
In our natural disposition (fitra), we share a strong urge to connect with the Divine and experience an aching emptiness when that connection is lacking. To fill up that void, we frequently seek comfort in worldly distractions and attachments, only to realize that everything earthly is in fact fleeting and diminishing. Join us as we explore how to remove potential distractions from our path to God and nurture a lasting connection with the Divine.
