Defense Against Disaster
This is a special workshop designed for brothers and sisters who have basic knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah and are yearning to defend Islam academically.
This course is unique in that it is designed to equip the attendees with tools that will help them fight against those who are trying to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths.
It is without a doubt that everyone has noticed the spread of Islam in our time. There are people taking the shahadah every day and night. However, at the same time, there are many of our youth, our sons and daughters, our brothers and sisters, who are leaving Islam or are being confused by people who have only one target: to stop the spread of Islam at any cost.
Through the internet and media outlets, missionaries, so-called reformers and liberals/modernists are attacking Islam with all their might, spending billions of dollars, and significant manpower and time on researching our sources. They are looking for any and every opportunity to raise doubts into the heart of our masses. Their mission is to make people openly leave Islam or to at least do away with their faith and conviction.
What does this course offer?
– The history of such groups and their agendas for Muslims.
– Identifying the causes, groups and ways in which Islam is attacked.
– Common methods between different groups.
– The framework of refuting attacks against Islam, even if knowledge is lacking.
– A list of the most common attacks against Islam, and full refutations that will expose the insincerity and inconsistency of the enemies of Islam
– A turn the tables approach where you will not only respond to such people from a defensive stance, but you will launch an offensive that will expose the lack of truth and double standards in their own faith, philosophy of life.
– A look into the main beliefs and ideals of groups such as Christians, secular humanists, atheists, Qadianis/Ahmadis, Hadith rejecters, liberals/modernists, etc. and the best ways to respond to their common arguments.
– A deep look at the undeniable proofs that the Qur’an is the word of Allah and Islam is the only way towards salvation and the only truth.
At the end of this course, the attendees will have the knowledge of assessing arguments and comments about Islam and a methodology to answer questions that may arise. They will have a toolkit that will enable them to effectively call people to Islam and respond to misconceptions and allegations.
