(bismillah)

Salam Alaikum,

Inshallah this reaches all in the best of health and iman...

I am pleased to present the latest online hawza with Sheikh Mansour Leghaei. Sheikh Mansour Leghaei has been presenting lectures at the Hawza level for many years. This year is the first year that he has compiled all his lectures to create an intensive Hawza curriculum. May Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì reward him and those who helped organize this...

This is the best time to join and strengthen our Islamic knowledge and base. Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen Ali (as) said: "Surely, the completion of religion is due to the obtaining of knowledge and acting on it (accordingly), and beware that the obtaining of knowledge is more obligatory for you than earning wealth." (Usul-ul-Kafi, vol.1, p. 23).


Additional information and the website is attached below:


eHawza Introduction

Welcome to Imam Husain eHawza – your very own English School of Islamic Theology at your fingertips.



Here you have access to more than 500 academic lectures in English on various Islamic topics coupled with more than 5000 pages of information.

Islamic learning has predominantly been accessible in the Arabic, Farsi, Turkish and Urdu languages in countries most of us cannot visit. All this information in the form of academic levels in the English language is definitely a rare find. We have designed and created the first intense Islamic Theology Diploma in the more universal and scientific language of our age: English.

With eHawza you do not need to worry about issues such as travel and matching your timetables to your work hours. You don't need to worry about missing an important point during a lecture. You can always replay the lectures and listen to them as many times as you wish. Thus, the lecturers and the study material are always available for your convenience in your own time and place.



Alhamdulillah, with the blessings of the Almighty and the unlimited effort of all brothers and sisters involved, eHawza is finally available to all.


eHawza is designed to cater for beginners to Islamic Theology as there is no requirement for prerequisite courses to enrol. We take you on a step by step journey from the basic fundamentals of Islam to an in-depth world of Islamic wonder.

Although this Diploma is designed for people with no knowledge about Islam, it will benefit people of all levels of understanding. However, should you find any course too basic, you may apply for accreditation and move on to the next level. (Accreditation requires a pass mark -55%- for every examination).



eHawza recommends that you take the courses in sequence to obtain maximum benefit as the Diploma is designed in such a way that each level is built upon the previous levels.



Lecturer

Almost all our lectures in the Diploma course are delivered by Dr Sheikh Mansour Leghaei who is the Religious Director of the Imam Husain Islamic Centre located in Sydney Australia since its establishment in 1997 and is the founder of eHawza.



Dr Leghaei was born in 1962 in Abadan , Iran . His main teachers in the advance studies (Bahs Kharej) in the Islamic Seminary of Qom include:

• The Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarim Shirazi who was his main teacher in ‘Principles of Jurisprudence' for five years.

• The Late Grand Ayatollah Jawad Tabrizi who was his main teacher in ‘Jurisprudence' for five years.

• The Grand Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani under whom he studied ‘the Principles of Jurisprudence' for one year.

• His main teacher in the sciences of Hadith and Rejaal was the Grand Ayatollah Musa Shobairy Zanjani.

• Ayatollah Hasan Hasan Zadeh Aamoli under whom he studied Sharhel-Esharaat.

• Ayatollah Jawadi Aamoli under whom he studied two volumes of al-Asfar (the most advanced text in transcendental philosophy).

• Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi and Sh. Muhammad Bahjat under whom he studied the book of al-Borhan of al-Shifa written by Avicenna.

• The Late Ayatollah Bahrol-Oloom Mirdamadi under whom he studied Sharhe Manazelu-Sa'erin in practical mysticism.


Dr Leghaei was posted to Australia in February 1994. Since then, with English being his third language, he has achieved success in delivering academic lectures and courses to reach the English speaking generations of Australians. Dr Leghaei has publications on various topics and his works are available in Farsi, Arabic and English. Some of the works of Dr. Leghaei are available on our website.

Salam Alaikum,

Sheikh told me about his ehawza program recently. I posted a post in the General Discussions for more information. I think I will be starting it soon inshallah..

The difficult part is that it is independent so it definitely requires discipline. We should set up a group here on Shiachat and listen to a lecture each week and then discuss it. It would be a great way to keep each other on top of things..

What do you guys think?

Wasalam,
Eman

^ he talked to us about it last night. There is an issue in regards to duplicating the e-hawza material. It cost the center $300k to put together the e-hawza program. They need the funds to help with the administration costs of running the program and the ihic.

^So it's not up yet then?

Where does the 300k come from? ie what would that cover? Wouldn't people's enrollment and fees help with that?

If you enrol into the program, they send you out an 80gig external USB hard-disk with the whole Hawza program on it. If we were to put the lectures on sc for members to listen to, it'd be duplicating the material, which is a concern to ihic.

I think you misunderstood me then. I meant we should all enroll (those interested of course) and pay the fees and then organize a study plan together and have discussions about the lectures together. I didn't mean that we share the material with people on shiachat.

Walaikum Salam,

Trust me we all have busy schedules but I think we can make time. Once or twice a week, for an hour and a half or so. It won't be that rough. I'll be taking my uni classes, working and teaching at the same time so try and see inshallah :)

Salam Alaikum,

I know it is two years if you're doing it full-time. However, you can do it part-time and get it done in four years. In terms of what kind of degree you get. That I am unsure of.

I know in the past I have taken some of those classes with Sheikh Mansour and he normally gives certificates at the end. He told me that they count as Hawza credit..

Wasalam,
Eman

btw, please do post the responses..
