Islamic studies subjects are the MOST important subjects of our curriculum!
How not so, and it gives us knowledge about the MOST precious thing Allaah blessed us with…. Our Religion Islaam!
The Methodology (Manhaj) we follow in BIA is the Salafi Manhaj and we are proud of it.
The Salafi call is the call of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah. It is that of the Quraan and Sunnah, pure and free from any additions, deletions, alterations or extremism in any way or form.
It is how the Pious predecessors (the Salaf) have understood and practised Islaam. The Salaf are those of the 3 most pure and pious generations. The Generation of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and the Sahabah, the generation after that, then the generation after that.
Salafiyyah is not a party (political or else what), a sect, an organised group… It is a way of life! The way of implementing the religion how Allaah and His messenger have intended.
This frees us from corrupt methodologies such as those of: Takfiiris; the likes of Ash-Shabaab in Somalia, ISIS (Daa’ish) in Syria, Al-Qaa’idah, Suufis, Shia and every other methodology or group which doesn’t practise ISLAAM as Abu Bakar (r.a) and Umar and Uthmaan and Ali and the rest of the Sahaabah – May allaah be pleased with them all – have practised it.
In Sahiih Muslim we read:
‘A’isha reported that a person asked Allaah’s Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) as to who amongst the people were the best. He said: Of the generation to which I belong, then of the second generation (generation adjacent to my generation), then of the third generation (generation adjacent to the second generation).
We are stongly affailiated and attached to the scholars and students of knowlwdge in the country and outside of the country, the like of but not limited to: sh C/kariim xasan xoosh, Sh barbaraawi, Sh Maxamed Jamaac, Sh Ahmed Ciid, etc
