Transformed Highlights

A revolution for the Heart
Within every ship is a captain. This captain is the master who drives and controls the whole ship. The one who controls the master, controls the ship. Within our bodies is also a master; a master that drives and controls the rest of us. That master is the heart. "Indeed in the body is a lump of flesh. If it is set right, the entire body is set right. And if it is corrupted, the entire body is corrupted. Verily it is the heart." (al-Bukhāri)
Journey of Life
As we journey through this life, many things compete for control of this lump of flesh. Worse than that, we become so heedless to what is really going on, that we ourselves actually invite in the problem. We call upon those things because we can’t see past them. Shaytān, our desires, our nafs, people around us, money, society, and culture thus freely enter into our lives and challenge to dominate this master. But all these things are only slaves, like us! “Those you call upon instead of Allah are slaves like you!” (al-A‘rāf, 194)
Liberate yourself
Our objective is therefore to liberate this lump of flesh from the servitude to the slave, and bring it to the servitude of the Lord of the slave. When the heart is liberated in this way, it can begin to function as it was created to function. It can begin to love and give and understand the world in the right way - a way based upon Truth, not falsehood, or illusion. It becomes unlocked from what we had sealed it with. It becomes clean from the covering and layers of sin encasing it. It becomes full of light after darkness enveloped it. It can see again, and guide you after it had been blinded. “It is not people’s eyes that are blind, but their hearts within their breasts.” (Sūrat’l-Hajj, 46)
It is time to be Transformed
A liberated heart, transforms everything around it. When the heart is transformed, our actions transform. Our relationships transform. Our lives transform. And then, all of society transforms. “Indeed Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change what is inside themselves.” (Sūrat’l-Ra‘d, 11) What are you waiting for, when you can now embrace that change? AlMaghrib Institute is proud to present “Transformed”, a single-weekend seminar that examines how to bring about this change by studying the purpose and function of the heart as it relates to ultimate success in this life and the next. It will examine the concept of love and attachment and will go in depth into the principles of relationships as they relate to the state and function of the heart. It will discuss practical tips on how to transform our relationship with our Creator, ourselves, our spouses, our families and our society, by transforming the state of our heart and our vision of the world. Taught by the talented and popular Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed – author of the acclaimed “Reclaim Your Heart” - allow her to take you on a journey of transformation using her experience and skill, making you delve into the innermost depths of your soul and making you realise just how at peace you could be despite all of your pain and difficulties in life.
