This course will allow participants to engage in discussions about the ethical worldview of Shia Muslims. The course will cover major topics from heedlessness about Allah, to piety and how it should be practiced in our daily lives, to the approach and outlook a believer should have towards tests and trials.
The course will begin with discussing and understanding the concept of heedlessness, as well as practical ways to remedy this ethical ailment. Heedlessness and its remedies will be a central point of concern throughout these discussions. The course will also discuss important topics like how to gain spiritual sustenance and overcome in our internal struggles. Repentance and piety will also be central ideas of discussion throughout the course. The high morals of Imam al-Husayn (a), and the depravity of his enemies, will be taken as case studies in practical ethics.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about their faith in a way that can practically impact their lives, should attend this session. It will help them reflect on different aspects of our system of ethics and how they relate to their day-to-day lives.
This session is best suited to individuals ages 18+.
