About Circles of Light
Circles of Light is a fledgling educational initiative focused on sharing sacred learnings and wisdom for the benefit of the community, meant to assist in maximizing Dunya (this life) for our Deen (Faith). He gives wisdom to whomever He wills. Whoever is given wisdom has been given much good. But none pays heed except those with insight. (Quran). We are motivated by the words of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him); the most beloved people to Allah are those most beneficial to the people. (Hadith). We seek to achieve this aim through our in-person educational programs and publications.

IHYA Publishing
Ihya Publishing is dedicated to reviving beneficial knowledge (al-‘ilm al-nafi’), which we believe unlocks the doors of all good and leads to true success in this world and the next.

Imam al-Haddad defines this knowledge in the following way: “​[Beneficial knowledge] is that which increases your knowledge of the Essence of Allah, His Attributes, Acts, and favors, makes you aware of His commands and prohibitions, leads you to renounce the things of this world and wish only for the hereafter, and brings your faults, the defects in your acts, and the plots of your enemy to your notice.”​ We hope our published works will assist seekers in this sacred pursuit.
