One of the most beautiful experiences in my life, and I do not exaggerate, was my participation in the program. It increased my love for my great Prophet ﷺ and my pride in his teachings. It instilled in me a love for adhering to his Sunnah, and it illuminated the darkness of my mind and heart.

I have learned a lot of fiqh rulings, acts of worship, and morals that Muslims should have. I've also learned the proper aqeedah. I learned things I was previously unaware of regarding aqeedah, fiqh, and the Prophet's biography, which increased my understanding and love for my religion. When I have the opportunity, I share what I have learned with my family and loved ones.

My participation in Zad Academy's program had a positive impact on both my family and personal life. I benefited from tafsir, learning the meanings of hadiths that were previously unfamiliar to me, and greatly benefited from the tarbiyah subject on diseases of the heart, their causes and how to overcome them. I now apply every lesson in my daily life.

Much of my daily life was spent ignorant of various aspects, and fiqh covered almost everything a Muslim may encounter in contemporary life. The Prophet’s biography and tarbiyah taught me good moral values and ethics. I feel that I now know how to deal with people, my religion, and myself!
