Al-Azhar is now filming and uploading its classes onto youtube for all to see. Sadly it is only in arabic (for now), but nonetheless this video is a wonderful opportunity to see what it is like attending these open classes of these great teachers!
(Note: the video I initiall posted with this blog has been removed. Ive uploaded a link to a different talk but the same things apply!
This is Sheikh Ali-Jumu’ahs class on Usool Al-Fiqh in Al-Azhar. His mannerisms and way of teaching are sublime, and his words are accessible yet thought-provoking. Even if you dont understand arabic, just watch this for a moment.
May Allah grant all our scholars good health and long lives, and enter them Jannah Al-Firdaus – the highest rank of Paradise! Ameen
