The Prophetic Journey

MAGR special event – Evening with Shaykh Hussain Kamani

The Prophetic Journey

Following in the footsteps of Ibrahim (AS), every year, millions converge to seek forgiveness and to earn reward from Allah (swt). Join us for an evening with Shaykh Hussain Kamani reflecting on the history of this Prophetic journey and pilgrimage – The Hajj. 

About Mufti Hussain Kamani
Born to a Hindu convert, Mufti Hussain Kamani began his pursuit of the Islamic sciences at the young age of six, finishing the memorization of the Quran at Darul Uloom Madania in Buffalo, New York in 1999. Having the growing thirst to quench more knowledge, Mufti Kamani then travelled across the world to the United Kingdom to attain more advanced formal Islamic authorizations in the Islamic sciences. He enrolled at the Darul Uloom in Bury, a renowned Islamic seminary. Mufti Hussain completed the traditional six-year curriculum covering the Arabic language, Arabic morphology, Islamic jurisprudence, Tafsir (exegesis), Hadith, Philosophy, and ‘Aqidah (Islamic Creed) under the guidance of some of the most recognized scholars in England.

Upon graduation he was then specially selected to enter a post-graduate level course in Islamic Law and Legal Verdicts (Fatwa), which he completed in two years. Alongside his religious studies, Mufti Hussain was also blessed with having the opportunity to study Management at the University of Coventry, where he completed a degree in Business Management.

Apart from being an instructor at Darul Hikmah and Darul Qaaim, Mufti Hussain is also an active Jujitsu fighter. He has won awards in international Jujitsu competitions and continues to train regularly alongside his other engagements. Many people also don’t know that he not only sells but also designs clothing for the Kamani fashion line.

Youth hangout with Mufti Kamani Friday- Aug. 21st – Tomorrow – 6:30 – 7:30 pm

Youth hangout with Mufti Kamani Friday - Tomorrow – 6:30 – 7:30 pm
In addition to the Prophetic Journey talk at 8pm on Friday. Mufti Hussein Kamani has agreed to hold an informal “hangout session” with the youth from 6:30pm-7:30pm. Mufti Kamani will lead a discussion on contemporary challenges faced by the muslim youth; this discussion will include an anonymous Q and A session.
We encourage all youth to take advantage of this valuable opportunity. The program is geared towards age 13 – 21.
