The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by God…” [Riyadh us-Saleheen, 245]. This is the Enlightened Path, the path that leads to our ultimate goal of attaining Jannah, the path that draws us nearer to Allah (SWT) with greater knowledge of Him, His book, and His teachings. This program at the ICP will help pave this way, inshaAllah by offering in-depth teachings of Islamic sciences as no other program in Pittsburgh or the surrounding areas has.
