Classes With Imam Tahir Anwar

Announcement posted on Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Rooted in Faith

A Weekly Discussion Series | Every Thursday at 7:30pm

Too often are we distracted by topics in life that do not concern God. Such seemingly meaningless distractions can, overtime, become destructive to one’s spiritual health. This weekly discussion series aims to orient one’s internal compass towards God. Covering a variety of topics (including current events, day to day fiqh questions, hadith, etc), Imam Tahir Anwar will discuss the primary goal of a Muslim: How to become rooted in faith in order to become closer to God.

Quranic Tafsir (Sisters Only)

A Weekly Tafsir of Selected Surahs | Every Thursday at 11am

An introductory course on Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir) of selected chapters. Taught by Imam Tahir Anwar, this course will cover the meanings along with general themes of the selected chapter. It will also guide one to appreciate the depths of the Holy Qur’an and its deep rooted connections to our daily lives. This course also aims to ground one’s understanding of certain Qur’anic chapters as understood by traditional Islamic scholars.

SBIA Family Night

SBIA event occurs on Friday, February 6th, 2015

Friday, February 6 | 6:30pm | 2345 Harris Way, San Jose

6:30 PM: Dinner,  7:30 PM: Isha Prayer,  7:45 PM: Presentations
Topic:  Muslim Unity in Qur’an and Hadith Perspectives
Speaker:  Ziaur Rahman
Abstract:   In this talk, Ziaur Rahman plans to present the concept of Unity according to Quran and Sunna perspectives, some of the reasons of disunity among the mankind, Muslim Ummah, and even Ahle-Sunna wal-Jama' with some historic perspectives. When one can clearly understand the sources of disunity and its consequences, fostering understandings of unity can be possible and it can be achieved. Allah SWT has beautified the hearts of the Muslims with the Iman and love of Allah SWT, and for His Rasuls. When Rasul-Allah SAW taught the companions the Quran that purified and beautified their hearts with Iman, and enjoined their hearts together, a spark of unity was created that enabled the spread of Islam globally in unprecedented speed. When the Quran and Sunna was not properly adhered to, the unity was broken that brought the halt of the progress. A proposal of a Framework for regaining the Unity will be discussed.
Ziaur Rahman has two MS degrees in Applied Physics, Electronics, and Computer Science, taught at Indiana University, worked for about 30 years in engineering and management positions at several different High-Tech corporations including AT&T Bell Labs, Samsung, Lucent, T-Mobile, Capgemeni, Comcast, and Oracle, and he has co-chaired International technical conference.  

INGYouth Workshop in the South Bay

SBIA event occurs on Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Preventing and Addressing Bullying/Harassment/Teasing in School

For Parents and Youth (ages 11-22)

Date: Saturday, January 31, 2015 | 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (including lunch)

Location: South Bay Islamic Association, 2345 Harris Way, San Jose, CA 95131

Adults are challenged to respond to the never-ending bad news and stereotypes of Muslims – but what about young people who are struggling to understand and maintain their identity? According to surveys, 50-70% of Muslim children suffer from teasing leading to bullying in relation to their religious and ethnic identities. 

Join us at our workshop to address the following topics: 

• Understanding Islamophobia, its consequences on the school environment and what to do about it.

• Addressing difficult questions about Islam and Muslims.

• What if you’re asked to present in your school, how do you do it, and what tools are available to you.

• What actions to take if you or your child is being teased, harassed, or bullied at school.

Middle school, High school and college students, as well as parents, will each explore these topics in separate age-appropriate groups as well as uniquely tailored plenary sessions.  Event is free of charge, but donations are welcome.


• Ameena Jandali: Understanding Islamophobia, Answers to difficult questions about Islam; What if you’re asked to present about Islam and Muslims

• Marcia Beauchamp: Religious Liberty: A civic framework for living with our deepest differences

• Michael Dittmer: What actions to take if you or your child is being teased, harassed, or bullied at school

• Kiran Palla: Steps towards building self-confidence in school
