Why Spirituality?

Spirituality is a fuel that keeps our practice of faith continuing. It is the key to all of our worship; that which gives it meaning and life. It is the inner essence of worship as God mentions in the holy Quran, when he addresses the believers about the ritual prayer He mentioned those who in their prayer are in awe.

God also mentions in His holy book when they remember the signs of God they are  “.. those whose hearts tremble…” [Quran 8:2] and many other verses.

So the inner kernel and essence of worship is worship that induces a spiritual state. This is clearly indicated by the famous Jibraeel Hadith in which the Prophet ﷺ was asked about Ihsan (Perfected Worship) and he ﷺ mentioned that you “worship God as if you see him, and if you see him not know that he sees you”.

For this reason the road to develop this spirituality is a specific science and it is a road that we all must traverse to start to bring life into our worship and love for God and His Prophet, and love for the creation of God. This is the road of Inner Healing and Resuscitation of the Soul that will change worship from ritual to spiritual nourishment; and develop the inner meanings of faith that we have understood academically but not quite internalised into our hearts.

In essence we transform from body and mind to soul and spirit.

It is for this reason that we have developed the Holistic Diploma which develops a person in all facets of their lives, and in their worship of God, not just the academic aspects.
