Dr. Ali Al-Halawani

Academic, Researcher & Author


Learn how Islam actually shapes the character of the Muslim and how it impacts our life in this introductory course taught by Dr. Ali Al-Halawani.

Nobody will ever dispute the reality that all world faiths advocate improving human behaviour, establishing distinct connections between a person and their Lord, themselves, their spouses, their children, their parents, their neighbours, the rest of society, and so forth.

Islam, in its status as the natural religion of man, optimizes these relationships through the teachings found in the Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad’s Sunnah. One can alter themselves and their relationships with Allah and everyone around them by returning to these two essential sources of guidance, the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
