"Alhamdulillah the course has been an amazing learning experience which I found to be in depth, clearly explained throughout and taught in a most engaging manner. Being it the first time joining an online class, I was very hesitant initially- however I feel now I couldnt have made a better choice and would definitely recommend studying under respected Mufti Abdur Rahman saahib. We covered such things that I’ve never been taught in years of studying the topic."

Umme Maryam

"This course proved to be an invaluable experience. In teaching such a complex and intricately detailed topic, respected Mufti Sahab is providing a great service to all who seek to further their knowledge. He was very patient in fielding all of our questions and explained everything very thoroughly. I truly learned a lot, and feel prepared to apply what I learned. I highly recommend this course to those who are interested in cementing their understanding of menstruation, and to those who wish to become a resource for those around them."
