The Usuli Institute is proud to present its educational events via livestream when possible, and recorded for viewing online on our YouTube channel or as listed below. Our regular Halaqa (Circle of Learning) sessions cover both pressing issues confronting humanity today, as well as deeper investigations into the Islamic Intellectual tradition such as Original Qur'anic Commentaries (Tafsir) and the Meaning, Purpose and Effect of Prayer. In our Usuli Institute Conversation Series, we bring guests to discuss specific issues or hot topics. In the Usuli Institute Intros, Executive Director Grace Song shares personal stories, reflections and ideas on the importance and impact of the Usuli method on everyday life as a modern Muslim in America seeking the divine path. Our Friday Virtual Jumu'a and Khutbahs offer weekly spiritual and intellectual inspiration and uplift for living as thinking, ethical and engaged Muslims confronting modern-day challenges. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date notifications of events and new uploads.
