Free english islamic classes in Singapore

As Muslims, seeking knowledge is so important that it is an obligation. Ideally, all our actions should be based on sound religious knowledge from trustworthy scholars. 

Although the process may seem difficult, we are hopeful that our efforts will bring us closer to Jannah. Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet s.a.w said:

"Whoever treads a path of seeking knowledge, Allah makes the path to Paradise easy for him." 

(Imam Muslim)

Thankfully, we have many Islamic classes in Singapore that are conducted regularly. Go to any mosque and you will be able to find a schedule of lessons taught by our wonderful local ustaz and ustazah. 

What's even more amazing is that there are so many Islamic happenings islandwide that are being offered for free. That's right! You can get invaluable knowledge without paying a cent!

Here's a list of 9 upcoming Islamic classes and events that you have to check out:

1)  JustAsk! AYN 

JustAsk! AYN is a series of interactive Islamic sessions conducted by Asatizah Youth Network in English. During each session, you get the opportunity to learn Islamic knowledge and discuss relevant topics in a relaxed setting. 

Each JustAsk! AYN starts with a short sharing by asatizah based on broad themes such as "Ramadan and You", "Millennials and Spirituality" and "Beyond Hijrah: What's Next?".
