The Islamic tradition has a wondrous saying that one should seek knowledge, even if it means going to China. Fortunately, The Usuli Institute offers a number of important resources for gaining knowledge that do not require going to China: Reading Recommendations, YouTube videos and podcasts on iTunes and SoundCloud. But if you still want to go to China, then we will need to have a conversation with you about what is happening there to the Uyghur Muslims...!
Muslims are known as the Civilization of the Book, yet Muslims today don't much like to read. To reclaim our faith, we must reclaim our love for knowledge and reading.
For reading recommendations, we begin with the scholarship of The Usuli Institute Founder, Khaled Abou El Fadl, which can be found at www.searchforbeauty.org.

Join us in our Usuli Institute educational events and halaqa's (circles of learning). We record and upload all of our events and make them available on The Usuli Institute YouTube channel, or you can find them here. In addition, there are a wealth of videos with Dr. Abou El Fadl giving lectures, classes, khutbahs and more at the Scholar of the House YouTube channel or at www.searchforbeauty.org. We will post Usuli Institute YouTube videos here as they become available.
Podcasts are available on iTunes and SoundCloud!
Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl, Islamic scholar, American law professor (UCLA School of Law), and classically trained Islamic jurist, has dedicated a lifetime to the study of Islam, Islamic law and Shari'ah--the path to and from God. In this comprehensive collection of podcasts, he shares his vast knowledge of the Qur’an (Islam’s holy book) and the Islamic intellectual, spiritual and moral tradition through formal and informal classes, lectures, khutbahs (Friday sermons) and halaqas (small group circles of learning).
