Spiritual and Physicals Growth

Spiritual ties are strung through shared experiences, laughter, tears, good times, and hard times. They are tightened through efforts of worship together, efforts to make change together, efforts to help and support one another. Spiritual ties are the ties, which, when tied, cannot be unknotted. The rabat is tight and permanent.

Spiritual upbringing is a lost art. It is the reaching into the heart and mind of a student and setting her aright. It is the raising of a student to new spiritual heights, and the guiding of a student to a true and deep tawba (repentance). It is placing a mirror in front of that student, and gently helping her see her real self, and the self she needs to be. Spiritual upbringing is the way of our Prophet ﷺ, as evidenced by his interaction with his companions, and the historical tradition of our faith.

Spiritual upbringing is a connection between teacher and student. It is the connection that seeks taqwā, patience, asceticism (leaving of the nafs) and growth.

While scholarship is gender-free, there is something to be said for perspective. There are women who have worked tirelessly to bring the female voice to Islamic scholarship in this century. Here we attempt to provide access to this voice. We also interact with well-known scholarship and attempt to discuss issues of Islamic sciences in general and in specific as they are applied to the female experience. We stand in rābiṭa; ready to access and contribute to the world of Islamic scholarship.
