  1. Salams Wizdom - I dont know any arabic at all (I can only read). Ibn al-Hussain - do you have any further info? jazakallah
  2. Salam Alaykum, I searched for this all over ShiaChat but either there isn't much here or I'm having trouble navigating. Can anyone please share any information they may have about Hawza short courses for 2014 and/or 2015. From what i have heard, the majority of short courses work in a way that "you bring a group of people and tell us the dates, we'll orgnise the course for you" - i.e. there are no set dates or structured programs which people can enrol into and attend. I live in Australia and would prefer something in Karbala, Najaf, Qom or Mashhad. Jazakallah
  3. Salam Alaykum, Does anyone know anything about studying physiotherapy in Iraq or Iran (preferably Karbala, Najaf or Qom)? Any information whatsoever would be helfpul. Jazakallah.
  4. I heard from someone that Sheikh Ansari from Al-Rasool Al-Adham Mosque (Bankstown) is Ayatullah Sistani's representative in Sydney - I am not 100% sure about this. Sheikh Ansari doesn't speak very good English but i have his son Basim Ansari's number. if you would like it, feel free to send me a private message.
  5. Salams all, Digging up an old thread but thought id share what I know since i have spent a lot of time (maybe too much) researching this topic. Some links: http://www.ehawza.com/ (developed my Sheikh Mansour Leghaei (IHIC)) http://www.aou.ir/html/index-en.html (online courses by Al-Mustafa International University (Hawza in Qom)) I have heard that sheikh Zayd al-Salami (Nabi Akram Islamic Centre, Granville) also runs hawza courses but I'm not 100% sure about this. the aou website only has english courses at the masters level. the courses at the bachelor level are only in arabic, persian and urdu (and i dont know any of those languages). therefore, after more than a year of thinking, I might go with the ehawza course (still thinking). it is a diploma of Islamic studies which costs $2000 (if paid up front, otherwise $2300 if paid in instalments). I spoke to Sheikh Mansour (who is currently residing in Esfahan, Iran), he advised that upon completion of the course you do NOT get a certificate from al-Mustafa university as the website unfortunately misleads you (or at least, it misled me). rather, once you complete the course, al-mustafa will take it into consideration and give you credits should you decide to undertake further study in Hawza in Qom. reiterating, the certificate is from ehawza not al-mustafa. wish you all the best inshallah!
  6. Salam Alaykum, Inshallah may your good intentions come to life and may you succeed in every aspect of your spiritual journey. Try to contact Sheikh Mujir Lakhani in Hawza 'Ilmiyya of An-Najaf Al-Ashraf on mml786@yahoo.com - he is the brother of Agha Shabbir Maisami. Let me know if you can't get through to him and I will try to get his contact number. If you find any other info, please do post it here so everyone can benefit - I know some other people who wish to go to Iraq inshallah. Iltemas-e-dua!
  7. Jazakallah...more than six years after the original post, people are still benefiting from it. Thanks and great work! And completely agree with Fatimaa's comment above - the words of the Imam are a great treasure. Qalaam al Imam, Al-Imam al Qalaam (the words of the Imam are the best of the words).
  8. Subhanallah. Thanks for posting!
