Jazakum Allahu khayra for running this blog.

First Friday of every month, Mufti Muhammad ibn Adam al-Kawthari is doing a session on Imam Bukhari’s al-Adab al-Mufrad… they are great sessions. There have only been three so far. You can listen online.

I agree. Mufti al-Kawthari is a gem of a scholar. I was blessed to meet him at the recent RIS conference in Toronto.

Those who meet him and hear him speak always fall in love with him, Masha Allah. a very nice and gentle person.

Assalamu Alaykum,

If one would like to get Mufti saheb to deliver a lecture at their local Uni, they should complete the lecture booking form which can be found on the "contact us" section of the Darul Iftaa website.

Part 2 is scheduled later this year. Details will be posted soon insha'Allah.
