Experience of students

Most students experience the lectures as fun and informative. The first time is always exciting because you don’t know what to expect or you are afraid of some kind of judgment. After the first time, the students experience that there is nothing to be afraid of. Mostly because there are different types of people, cultures, opinions, people from different countries and because we are open to everyone. Spread the word and we hope to see you in our lectures In Shaa Allah.

What can I expect?

The lectures are given in a classroom at the University of Tilburg. The lectures are meant for everyone even if you are not a student or a non-Muslim. We start with the salaam and the host will give a small introduction about the topic of the lecture. During the lecture we will provide some drinks and snacks…………because food always attracts people (we have humor too). We try to make the lectures interactive so we can discuss a few points and share our visions on the topics. You can join anytime you want. You don’t have to sign up for anything, you can just walk in and join. You are not obligated to anything. We want you to come and learn, but also have a good time. We are open to opinions and suggestions. Try it and decide if it benefits you or not!

Purpose of the lectures

The main purpose of the weekly lectures given at the University, is to give all the students the opportunity to gain (more) knowledge about Islam. The lecture is provided by the Bayyinah institute of Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan. We had the privilege to attain a special program of the Bayinnah institute, including hand-outs for the lectures. These lectures are not available on the internet or on YouTube! There are many different topics in these lectures like: the meaning of life, meaning of a verse, meaning of a chapter and many more.
