Agenda to Change Our Condition

Imam Zaid Shakir along with Ustadh Faraz Khan will be teaching “Agenda to Change Our Condition.”

Struggle with the self is the means by which we purify our hearts of false deities. It is the ancient way of the Prophets. It is to walk the path toward a realized state of submission to the will of God. Agenda to Change Our Condition co-authored by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Zaid Shakir, is a concise treatise on the path to Taqwa (conscious awareness of our Lord). This class unlocks the simple yet effective means to transform our inner world through spiritual struggle with the soul, elucidated in this classic volume.


October 23, 2016 - 10:00 am - October 23, 2016 - 5:00 pm
Venue: Crystal Cove Auditorium, University of California, Irvine, CA.
