Class Recommendation for Convert Women

Companions of the Prophet (s) with Anse Dr. Tamara Gray

An in-depth study of the sixty companions discussed in the book Stars in the Prophet’s Orbit. Students will learn their stories, draw conclusions about Islamic precepts from their lives, understand their relationship to the Prophet , and derive personal lessons from their lives. Students will apply same to an additional companion upon whom research will be done.

Foundations, Flounderings, & Faith with Anse Dr. Tamara Gray

Belief and practice are the essential building blocks for Muslims and, as such, in order to build a fortress of faith, we need solid building materials. This course will cover basic ʿaqīda (tenets of belief), discuss issues of practice, and attempt to answer controversial questions. We will build a community of faithful friends, quell the floundering heart, and revive the faithful heart.

Project Lina Workshop

The Project Lina Workshop is a 9-session workshop for Muslim female converts to Islam. The three main components of the workshop – Know Yourself, Declare Independence, and Tend Your Ties – are representative of some of the issues and problems Muslim converts deal with in today’s world. Anse Tamara leads the workshop with discussions about issues of culture, creed and connections with family, friends and community as attendees explore what it means to be a western female convert in today’s world. The workshop is not a ‘new Muslim’ course – rather it is an in-depth workshop for female converts – novice and veteran.

This workshop is currently closed.
