THE STRAIGHT PATH CONVENTION RETURNS WITH AL-ADAB AL-MUFRAD PART 2

AL-ADAB AL-MUFRAD SEMINAR PART 2


The Straight Path Convention presents the continuation of the 2-day seminar with Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem to study Imam Al-Bukhari’s Al-Adab Al-Mufrad.

Al-Adab Al-Mufrad is Imam al-Bukhari’s second most well-known work. A collection of 1300 narrations on Islamic etiquette and conduct, it is a fascinating insight into how one should behave as practised by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his companions.

Abu Huraira (رضى الله عنه) narrated, that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

“I have not been sent as a Messenger, except to perfect good character”

This book is a must have in every Muslim’s personal library as it exemplifies the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as the perfect role-model who we can emulate in all aspects of daily life.

Join this seminar as it will guide you through understanding the Prophetic narrations beyond just a simple reading of the book. Guided by Sheikh Assim, you will uncover the Hadiths via anecdotes and real-life examples in a way that is relevant and applicable to your life.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Al-Adab Al-Mufrad seminar about?

The Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Seminar Series is a 2-day book-based seminar where the teacher will guide students through understanding selected hadiths contained within certain chapters of Imam Al-Bukhari’s Al-Adab Al-Mufrad. The list of hadiths are pre-selected to capture the variety and essence of the book.

When was Part 1? What did it cover?

Part 1 of Al-Adab Al-Mufrad was held in November 2016 using the same 2-day weekend format.

We covered a selection of ahadith from various topics throughout the book, the selection of which is too extensive to be recorded here.

You can watch the full recording of Part 1 by purchasing the DVD via Dakwah Corner Bookstore, or on YouTube.

What is the difference between Part 1 & Part 2?

The difference between Part 1 & 2 are the selection of ahadith that will be covered. In Part 1, we have covered a selection of ahadith throughout the book. But since the book contains 1,300 ahadith under 644 chapters, we only covered a fraction of that.

For Part 2, we have chosen other ahadith that were not covered in the previous seminar.

The format of the seminar is the same, whereby the Sheikh will explain the ahadith from the selected list based on additional contexts, examples and provide insights which are derived from the hadith.

I did not attend Part 1 of Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Seminar, can I attend Part 2?

Yes, you can definitely join Part 2 without any worries even if you missed Part 1. The seminar is structured in a way that the Hadiths that will be covered in Part 2 is not dependent on Part 1, and it is not sequential either.

However, the selection of Hadiths that will be covered in Part 2 was made by elimination, which means we will not be touching the same topics or Hadiths that we mentioned in Part 1. As such that you may want to watch Part 1 (available on DVD or YouTube) so that you will also learn the topics that were selected in the first round.

Who are the speakers for this event?

The seminar will be taught by Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem only, as this is a class and not a convention.

I have bought tickets but can not attend the event due to an emergency, what can I do?

You may arrange the transfer the ownership of your tickets. As long as the new ticket holder has the physical or e-ticket, they will be able to attend the event. However, if you purchased the Al-Adab Al-Mufrad book with your ticket, it will be given by the new owner during the event.

If you purchased a physical ticket, just transfer the ticket to the new owner.

Is it compulsory to bring the Al-Adab Al-Mufrad book?

Yes, it is compulsory as the book is the focal point and primary resource for the seminar. We will not provide the text or any course notes for students during the course.

It’s important for students to note that objective of this seminar is encourage study of authentic classical scholarly texts. Owning a copy of the book will allow you to continue revision and learning after the completion of the seminar, which is the ultimate objective of the Straight Path Convention.

Yes, you may bring and use any version of Al-Adab Al-Mufrad that you own.

What else will I receive together with the tickets?

This year, we are trying something new with our book seminar. Each student will receive the physical tickets (either during purchase or upon registration on the event day) which also acts as a bookmark that is matching with the book being studied. This year, our bookmark ticket is in the design of the Al-Adab Al-Mufrad bookcover by Dakwah Corner.

Apart from that, students will receive:

  1. Packed lunch with drinks for 2 days
  2. A ball-point pen

We do not provide course notes as the nature of our study is based on a book. Students are required to bring their Al-Adab Al-Mufrad books and any materials necessary to aid in their note-taking, whether digital or otherwise.

Audio and video recording is strictly prohibited.

Will I receive any course notes and study materials during the seminar?
