The Choice To Change
An Introduction to Tarbiya
Throughout the course of our lives, our choices and actions get mixed: some good, some bad. What remains, however, is the constant struggle to do better, and to be better. Regardless of a person's accomplishments, we all have an inherent desire to elevate and to enhance. But how does a person do this systematically, within the deen? Join us ONLINE for an introductory course on the oft-neglected mother of all sciences, the Quranic science of tarbiyah or growth, and learn the basics around systematically growing yourself into the human God intended you to be.
