Weekly Study Circle
A weekly study circle takes place at both Karimia Masjid and Ash Shifa Masjid. These study circles are essential for learning and developing individual’s religious knowledge. It is a fantastic opportunity for people to come and listen to the recitation of the Quran and Hadith and to understand them. It’s also an opportunity to meet others and learn from others.
For seven days a week and all round the year the Nottingham Muslim community can listen to the five daily Azans and lectures in their homes via our special receiver. As with radio Dawn, this is fantastic medium to deliver the message of Islam into people’s home. Functions at the Masjid are transmitted live.
Conferences and public lectures
The Karimia Institute hosts a variety of conferences and lectures throughout the year. Lectures around key Islamic issues are held monthly with themes including the celebration of events in the Islamic calendar and current issues facing the Ummah worldwide. Various conferences are also organised to engage both the Muslim community and the wider community in understanding and learning about various issues such as social issues, personal issues, and religious issues.
Teachings of Islam – Summer course
This is a two week short course (50 hours) for young people. Every year an important theme is selected and it is systematically taught in lectures and seminars. In the past years we have studied:
• Study of creed, fiqh of tahara, salah
• Family life and moral teachings of
• Study of Surah Al Baqarah.
• Study of Surah Ale Imran.
The Karimia Institute has published a range of books on traditional Islamic teachings and contemporary subjects. These books are essential guides for Muslims to learn about their deen and to develop their intelligence.
Our books are available to buy from the Bobbersmill Community Centre, various book shops around the UK or online from our bookstore.
