      Yemen




      inshallah once my university degree is over, i intend to study deen in Yemen. so far i've found this place, that looks excellent http://www.m-almedina.com/English_Index.html for me as a starting place, to learn Arabic and basics of Islam. i was hoping to study in dammaj after this, especially as the place i linked to above has links with dammaj, but i've heard from many sources, that foreigners aren't allowed into dammaj (because of government pressure).

      so where else in Yemen could i study? whats emaan university like, and also Jamia al-Iman? also just out of interest, could anyone tell me what dammaj is like from what they have heard/read? like how the lessons are conducted

      Re: Yemen


      I studied in dammaj, And yes theres lots of pressure on the foreighners but alot of them end up there. Acutally its loaded with foreighners now. In my opinion dammaj is the best place to study. You get to study directly under the shiekh and all. Almadinah i heard its only for arabic studies? My friend is supposed to be going there really soon, so i'll aks her. I dont know much about the other study marakiz in yemen, maybe sis amirah_87 will have more information on that.

      Why does it have to be Yemen? Are they known as a good place for schools?

      Dammaj sounds soooo awesome! I've read bits about it on the internet, and I've heard a few lectures, by a current student there, where he answers questions....and it sooo sounds like the place for me insha'Allah.

      Re: Yemen




      Q: Where is The best place to study Islam without any restrictions whatsoever?

      A: DAMMAJ

      Wallahi, the 5 years that I spent there are the most precious in my memory and Insha'allah will always be.
      Classes there are abundant! Knowledge is just overflowing there wallahi, the teachers there are just amazing in the vastness of their knowledge, the students amount to the thousands! And whats more, it's free
      That's right, all the classes there are held Fi Sabilillah

      Language, Literature,Aqidah,Fiqh,Ilmul Hadeeth, Qur'an, everything.

      The Sheikh yahya holds 3 classes a day which are obligatory to be attended by everyone living on the Premises, and they are just beautiful.

      And then on the side you can find people to teach you any other subject that you wish insha'allah.

      Of course, it's all about self motivation whilst you're there because no one is forcing you to do anytyhing, you can study for as long as you want, as much as you want, but it's all up to you.
      Some poeple stay there for 10 years and know nothing, some people leave there after 5 years and they are full of knowledge.

      Yes Go!!!

      It depends really. If you have a basis in arabic you might as well go there one time and find someone in Dammaj to teach you because you'll pick up pretty fast anyway being amongst the Yemenis

      I have a friend who went to that Madinah institute thingy and she still couldn't speak Arabic when she came back LOL besides the basics that is.

      amirah_87 and umm_sulaim went to Dammaj and they didn't know a thing in Arabic but in a years time they were zooming along! It's because they had a great Arabic teacher Masha'allah, you know that brother who teaches Arabic on Paltalk? Abdulhakim? yes his wife was their teacher, Masha'allah awesome couple.

      But of course, learning Arabic first would help a good deal, and then when you get to Dammaj you can just go straight to the juicy stuff, the Deep stuff you know

      Oh Trust me. There's loads of them. And when I say nothing I mean nothing worth mentioning. At least they can speak Arabic though.

      Assalamualaikum warahmatullah,
      If you say "declare", I think its not like that we have to declare. But syaikh Albani explained that we should nisbat/address our self as a salafiyun (followers of salafus shalih). Cause these days eeeeeeeeeevery deviate sects in Islam admit and claim them self as muslim, and also thgey claim that theyre on Quran and sunnah. But the mistake is they interprate/understand Quran and sunnah with their own self understanding, and they take Quran and sunnah as they wish along with their intention. SO syaikh Albani explained its not enough to call our self a muslim that follow quran and sunnah "only", cause if its like taht, then whats the difference between us and those sects? So ulama mutaqaddimin and mutakhireen explained that theres one method that we mostly forgot, the third method is we understand quran and sunnah with the explanation of salafus shalih, and everyone who follow this kinda understanding called "salafy". Thats the simple explanation insha Allah.
      Yemen


      Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny? Woe unto the repudiators on that day!

      Wanna know more sunnah: Go to http://www.islamicboard.com/islamic-...do-u-know.html. No muslims can life without sunnah.

      Actually, if we call it the best place to study Islam, then Im sure theres another place to study Islam which is better, Allahu A'lam. If only theres someone who ever go to Saudi, Pakistan, Yordania, and then eeeverywhere which have Islamic study, then we can have an objectife answer from them which place is the best :sunny: If sis Nawal and Mawaddah said Dammaj is the best, its because maybe its the only place they study Islam :eek: If I ask someone who ever study in Sudan, maybe they will say the best place is in Sudan . Allahu a'lam.
      BUT...I agree that study Islam in Dammaj is one of the best . And beside Dammaj you can also study in syaikh Abul Hasan's camp, where? I forget :rolleyes: But also in Yemen. Maybe our sisters here can help. Insha Allah.
      AND when I was in hajj, I saw lot of students study Islam in masjidil haram with some teachers. Im wondering is it also free? Cause the students were not children, but grown up men.
      And muslims can also study in Medinah Al Munawarah with the mashaeikh there in their majlis. Like syeikh Abdulmuhsin al Abbad with his son syaikh Abdurrozaq Al Abbad, they usually give lesson in Nabawi. Alhamdulillah I had time to attended it while in hajj. And also syaikh Abu Bakr Jabir al Jazairi, also in Medinah. I heard they have lesson everyday after maghrib, Allahu A'lam. And also syaikh Ramadhan Al Jazairy, syaikh Anis Al Andunisy, syaikh Rabi' Al Madkhali, etc. Medinah is a town of tholibul ilm. Masha Allah.
      And in Saudi, you can also study with the ulama there, such as syaikh Fawzan al Fawzan in Qoshim district, and syaikh Abdurrahman al Ajlan in Mekah, etc.
      In Yordania, you can study with sheikh Ali bin Hasan Al Halaby, syaikh Salim bin Ied Al Hilaly, Syaikh Masyhur Hasan Salman, Syaikh Musa Alu Nashr in their camp "markaz Albani".
      So many places to study Islam. But if I can choose, I wanna be student in Medinah university We just have to study, we dont have to think another bussiness exceot it. We also have money from the government till 1000 riyal/month, and we will have a place to life, and if you married you will have a flat to life, and if you are clever and can get Doctor and be ulama there, you can ave 10000 riyal/month or more Masha Allah, (yaa Allah bless the government of Saudi that have taken care of ulama there and jamaah haji, ameen) And everyday they have busses to take the students to Nabawi, where they can have 50000 times of ajr than usual prayer in another masjid. And if you die there, you will be buried in Baqi' where is the best graveyard in the earth. Its said the first graveyard that will be raisen in yaumul qiyamah is baqi' And Rasulullah have prayed to Allah so Allah forgive the people in Baqi'. Now tell me, where is the best place to study now? :eek:
      I will send my children to Medinah insha Allah. but someone my age cant go to Medinah university to study, cause Medinah university have age limit. And Im 28 already . I would love to go to Dammaj too oneday insha Allah. Allahu a'lam bisshawab.
