Sacred Learning aims to develop excellence (ihsan) in all aspects of our lives, including acts of worship, personal relationships, and professional endeavors, by embodying the Prophetic example (sunnah), which models excellence for all of humanity.
Sacred Learning focuses on spiritual development in a manner consistent with the sunnah (example) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). We encourage a routine of worship and learning to grow the soul, coupled with istighfar (repentance), to cleanse the heart from the effects of shortcomings. Our individualized approach takes personal strengths and weaknesses into account so that students can achieve their highest potential in acts of worship, personal relationships, and professional endeavors.
The team is led by Shaykh Husain Abdul Sattar, who oversees the efforts of Sacred Learning in general and students’ development in particular. Shaykh Husain spent decades in the company of his teachers and, alongside his professional career as an academic physician and professor, has been training students spiritually for nearly twenty years.
