The heart of Al-Maqasid lies in our programs. Our learning methodology is based upon the al-Maqasid al-Thalatha: knowledge (‘ilm), devotion (suluk), and service (da’wa). We aim to weave together a diverse set of programs that allow for various levels of formal learning as well as regular opportunities to sustain and increase one’s religious knowledge and practice.

Loving the Beloved
This weekly program includes a recitation of the prophetic biography in poetry form followed by a counsel intended to connect the listener to the Prophet ﷺ and his teachings.
