Many of you are familiar with the Bare Necessities. I’m pretty sure that you can hear the melodic voice of Baloo in your head while you read through this entry. Bare Necessities is a 17 week course that covers Fardul Ayn (personal obligations). All of the foundational beliefs and rites that every Muslim-adult is required to know and perform to fulfill their spiritual and religious commitment to Allah as Muslims will be covered in this course (i.e. The Five Pillars of Islam). This class will be facilitated by Ustadh Abdul Razak. The class will take place on Friday nights from 8pm-10pm.


This class is for new converts to Islam, folks who are recommitting to Islam, folks who have been practicing Islam their entire life but haven’t studied Islam systematically in a quasi-formal setting and advanced Jedis who would like to observe another fellow Jedi in action. This is a very serious commitment of 17 weeks and we look forward to taking this journey with you.

This 17 week class is only $75 per student (Scholarships are available so don’t hesitate to hit us up for more info). Divided by 17 classes and you are looking at roughly $6 Dollars per class. This includes Entry to Shaykh Jihad Brown’s intensive (valued at $25), the book we will be studying from (valued at $25), decaffeinated and caffeinated coffee, tea, water, and other refreshments (valued at $25) and $25 that goes to the instructor of the 17 week class.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! Our goal is to have all of the material needed no later than the first class so that it will be available for the students by Friday August 16th. The earlier we process payments the sooner we can place orders for books and other material.
