This weekend, learn the fiqh of fasting in three Madhabs (Schools of Thoughts):

Sponsored by Zaytuna College

The month of Ramadan rapidly approaches, enjoining upon us the directives to fast and give zakat. Zaytuna College faculty are offering two weekends of live fiqh classes for the Hanafi, Maliki, and Shafi‘i madhhabs streaming on both Zaytuna College’s Facebook page and YouTube channel, focusing on fasting and zakat.

The two-weekend series, Prepare for Ramadan with Zaytuna College, will feature faculty members Imam Tahir Anwar, Dr. Abdullah bin Hamid Ali, and Shaykh Talal Ahdab. After each talk, the faculty members will take questions from the online audience. Recordings of the classes will also be available on Zaytuna’s YouTube channel if you cannot attend the live events.
