Bukhari Academy has been established to help Muslims of all backgrounds to understand and apply the teaching of Allah’s Final Messenger صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ in their social context. Since the Quran is a scripture, whose teachings must be enacted and not simply reduced to academic discussions, the only way a person will be able to successfully practice them the way Allah intended is by emulating his Messenger, whom he sent as a guide and mercy for all of mankind.
Allah states, “Indeed, there is an excellent example in Allah’s Messenger for those who anticipate [meeting] Allah, [witnessing] the Final Day and remember Allah in abundance.” (Surat al-Ahzab : 33) He also states, “If you obey him, you will be guided. The only obligation the Messenger has is to convey [Allah’s messages] clearly.” (Sūrat l-Nūr : 54)
Hence, through our courses and publications, we aim to provide the utmost comprehension and clarity to our community of the timeless teachings of our Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ so that divine guidance can be attained by all.
