With the growing spiritual and intellectual challenges of the Muslims community in the United States, there is a strong demand for mentors with formidable Islamic thought – grounded in the Islamic sciences and methodology of research and analysis. Such mentors need to play a significant role in the development and preservation of Islam in the contemporary era. They will be actively engaged with the community, addressing the intellectual and psycho-spiritual needs of the people. It is this engagement that shall help facilitate the revival of Islam in the hearts and practices of the greater community. This can only be achieved through a consistent, intensive study of the Islamic primary sources and scholarly tradition. Visit The Islamic Learning Foundation website.
