27th Annual QSS Conference

I know it’s kind of short notice, but QSS of North America will be holding it’s 27th Annual Conference December 25th through 29th at QSSC here in Toronto.

This year, Shaikh Akram bin Muhammad Ziyâdah al-Athari from Jordan will be visiting us (for the 2nd time, if I’m not mistaken). I can’t recall how long he’ll be staying with us this trip, but he should be here at least a week, maybe more. He’ll be staying with us for three weeks and during the conference he’ll be going over the book ‘Amal al-Yawm wal-Lailah (trans. The Day’s & Night’s Deed) by Imam Ahmad bin Shu’aib an-Nasâ’î. Afterwards he’ll be visiting various mosques around the GTA.

For those of you wanting to attend in person, QSSC is located @ 1865B Lawrence Ave. East in Scarborough (as usual, please avoid parking in the plaza parking lot and try to find a spot on either the Laxford or Wexford side streets). For those who can’t but would like to benefit, as was the case with past conferences, I’m guessing the lectures will be broadcast live online via QSSC.org, and later uploaded to QSSC’s YouTube channel. For more details regarding the lecture schedule and other things, keep an eye on the QSSC site for updates.



26th Annual QSS Conference

Yup, it’s that time again. It’s a bit late notice, but details of this year’s QSS Annual Conference have just been released on their mailing list. Originally, three scholars were announced as having been invited this year, but so far only one has received his visa: Shaikh Akram bin Muhammad Ziyadah. Of the many shaikhs he studied under and benefitted from, the most notable are Shaikhs ‘Abdul-‘Aziz bin Abdillah bin Baz, Muhammad Nasir ad-Din al-Albani, Muqbil bin Hadi al-Wadi’i, Muhammad bin Isma’il al-Imrani, Abdur-Rahman bin Mahdi ad-Dailami adh-Dhimari, and Muhammad Ibrahim Shaqrah. He is one of he many shaikhs involved with the al-Albani Center in Jordan. Anyone interested in reading more about the shaikh can check out his biography on Wikipedia (Arabic).

This year’s conference will be broken up into two parts. The first part will take place Dec. 24th through to the 26th, where the shaikh will be explaining the book al-Fatawa al-Hamawiyyah al-Kubra by Shaikh of Islam Ibn Taimiyyah. The second will start on Dec. 28th and conclude on the 30th, where the shaikh will be explaining Imam Abu Shamah al-Maqdisi’s Mukhtasar al-Mu’ammal fi ar-Radd Ila al-Amr al-Awwal.
