Al Maghrib in Toronto gets big!

A few years ago, sh Muhammad Al Shareef started the Al Maghrib institute, across North America, with a great vision. The last I heard from him, he was aiming for a class size of 1000. He is working round the clock developing curriculae to bring Islamic education to your doorsteps.
I received an email that the next course, The Shepherd's Path, has 501 students enrolled, mashallah. That's super amazing.
Al Maghrib institute has some of the best instructors out there, and the double-weekend-degree-seminars are very intense and powerful. With some courses, you learn a lot right there, you go with loaded with all this Islamic information that you're so proud to gain, and with other courses, such as Rules of Engagement, you find yourself applying what you learnt over weeks, months, years, Alhamdulillah.

For those people who don't think the Al Maghrib institute timings/locations work for them, there's Sunnipath! Sunnipath courses are comprehensive, covering a wide range of topics. The courses are completely offered online, and it's so convenient- You can listen to and see the instructor and ask questions during the online sessions as the lesson progresses with the powerpoint slides, just like in a classroom. This is even better because you wont feel shy asking your questions. Every lesson is available to view and listen as many times as you want. The instructor has office hours. Isn't it amazing that you may be sitting in Sydney tutored by someone in Amman? The TAs are very responsive and friendly, and they deal with your issues quite well. There are quizzes and final exams within flexible time frames. And I'd say this- Their courses are a much better experience than I could describe.
So give it a shot, enrol in the Introduction to Islamic Finance, taught by Faraz Rabbani. It's a great course, delving into topics you've always wondered about and going to just about the right depth.
