Course Introduction

This course introduces students to the essential rules of fasting and Ramadhan. Here’s why it is an absolute must for you to do this course.

What is obligatory knowledge?

The answer to this question is simple. Anything necessary to ensure that religious obligations like prayer, fasting of Ramadhan, Zakah, and any obligatory act for that matter can be completed correctly without any mistakes that invalidate them. Simple right?

So do you know enough?

Can you fast with the confidence you will fulfill all the required rules that make it valid, and do you know all the mistakes that could nullify it? If not, it is obligatory for you to learn them.

This short on-demand course will cover all of the above and more ensuring you and your family can be confident about your fasting.

The course is on demand, so you will have access to it all the time to review and double check your knowledge.

There will also be a scheduled live Q&A session with Shaykh Shams to help you with anything you need clarified or any questions specific to you.
