In June of 2022, Mufti Usama Abdulghani, an Islamic scholar based in Dearborn, Michigan, said in a lecture delivered to the children at the Hadi Institute Youth Community Center. But first we read the philosophy of this school as found on their web site:
We seek to assist our students on their journey towards fulfilling the goal of creation; to become true servants of the Almighty Allah (swt). In doing so, we hope to present to Allah (swt) and the Imam of our time, Imam al-Mahdi (aj), Muslim youth who are spiritually pure, ideologically aware, and practically devout.
- Training students to become Muslims in the true sense of the word, i.e., individuals who choose to submit themselves absolutely to Allah (swt) based upon a conscious understanding of life and the blessed religion of Islam, as taught by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s), his Ahlul Bayt (a), and the righteous scholars and maraja’ of the time.
- Fostering within students a wholehearted commitment to Islam’s pure and perfect code of values and ethics.
Islam teaches us that Islam is supreme. The supremacy of Islam. Not that we want a seat at the table, not that our whole hope is to stop islamophobia, so that we can just be treated like human beings. No, Islam is supreme
