“When one joins Almaghrib and joins a Qabeela, they join a family, a family of learning Islam together.” Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef

I suppose, he refers with “Qabeela” to the arabic word “قبيلة” and i ask myself how to join a tribe like Quraysh or Banu Umayya etc., consequently there must be another connotation – could you help in short?

ibn1brahim - February 28, 2010

Qabeelah is a term used to describe a student body in a particular city or area where AlMaghrib Institute classes are taught. http://almaghrib.org/enroll.php This link shows the various places where classes are taught. Each location has an active student body w/ an Ameer and Ameerah and many volunteers. For instance, New Jersey is called Qabeelat Durbah, New York is called Qabeelat Tayybah, and so on http://almaghrib.org/locations.php…. you may find more information at http://forums.almaghrib.org/

Sh. Hatem al-Haj just gave a post-Fajr lecture at our local Masjid and he was telling us afterwards that Minnesota was working on getting their own qabeelah. May Allah give you barakah and success, and make you amongst the leading tribes of AlMaghrib.

amtc2010 - July 2, 2010

You know Sheikh Hatem Al-Haj? He’s one of the Shuyookh here in MN, and one of the members of the Muslim Organization that I work for. And yes, he’s right–Almaghrib is coming sooner than we all would have ever hoped; Alhamdulillah!

Barak’Allahu Feek, brother. And JAK for sharing this post.
