Current SeekersHub Global Study Circle
Wisdom of Time: Understanding Surah al-Asr with Shaykh Faid Muhammad Said
Surat al-Asr is one of the shortest suras in the Qur’an. Yet it summarizes all that humans need to attain eternal success; all they need to make the most of time; and all they need to avoid loss, in this life and the next.
In this SeekersHub Global Study Circle, Shaykh Faid Muhammad Said, founder of Larayb and instructor at SeekersHub Global, takes us through the rich and deep wisdom of this sura.
In his inimitable and inspiring style, Shaykh Faid will combine classical commentary on the verses of this sura with stories of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), the Companions, and great Muslims, to show how they valued and made the most of time.
This Study Circle will educate, inspire, and be the springboard for deep reflection and fruitful discussion in your local communities, campuses, and homes.
So… why not start a Study Circle today?

What are SeekersHub Study Circles?
Circles are free online community-focused study groups broadcast to centers across the world. Each study group covers key Islamic topics in an inspiring, engaging manner. Circles are led by some of our senior scholars and seek to promote (1) individual faith and learning and (2) community building by gathering together individuals for Islamic learning in their own community and instilling in them the Prophetic concern for service.
Why join a SeekersHub Study Circle?
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
“Be with the group, and beware of remaining alone, for the Devil is close to the one alone, and more distant from two. Whoever seeks the vast expanses of Paradise should hold fast to the group.” [Ahmad, Tirmidhi, and others–rigorously authentic]
Unfortunately, many Muslims in the West live in fragmented communities and complain of a lack of direction, or unity—our Circles aims to reverse this. By bringing Muslims together in their own community through interactive and motivating study groups, Circles hopes to provide for your community a means for it to attain to excellence in a manner befitting the honorific title “Community of Muhammad” (peace and blessings be upon him).
Besides what one gains from the services themselves, SeekersHub Study Circles also hopes to motivate attendees to become active members of their community by not just helping fellow Muslims, but all those in need.
Study Circles are globally accessible, with locally run Circles on nearly every continent. To find out if there is a Circle near you, please click here.
