Class Description

Allah says in the Quran: “Call upon Me, I will respond to you.” 

Dua is such an important part of being a believer that our beloved Prophet equaled it to worship. That is why Allah has given us examples of duas made by the Prophets and pious people in The Holy Quran. The Prophets were sent by Allah as role models and the best examples for mankind. We follow in their footsteps by learning to make dua when we find ourselves in hardship and need or to achieve peace and success in our lives. 

Come join Anse Fadiyah in exploring these stories and the duas which we were gifted! We will learn the importance of dua, what is the adab of making dua, and how to make it. Students will learn about the prophets, their struggles, and the duas they made and how they can apply it to their lives.

Anse Fadiyah Mian

Masjid Rabata is honored to be under the leadership and guidance of Imam Anse Fadiyah Mian, New Jersey mother of four, tajwid instructor, and educator. She grew up in Michigan with her three sisters who were raised in a family that valued Islamic learning, spiritual tarbiya, and community care. Anse Fadiyah embarked on the journey of a lifetime over twenty years ago to study Islamic sciences in the blessed city of Damascus. She completed her training in tajwid and received her ijaza from the late Shaykh Muhyi-al-Din al-Kurdi. It was during this transformational time in Damascus that Anse Fadiyah also met Anse Shaykha Dr. Tamara Gray and studied under her and other female scholars. Anse Fadiyah is part of the first alumni cohort at the Ribaat Academic Institute who graduated in 2020. She also received an ijaza in the 40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi. She is an enthusiastic teacher for the Rabata Dragonflies and RabaTEENS youth programs. In her local spaces, she nurtures both animals and humans, showing love and care to all of Allah’s creations. Anse Fadiyah also leads women’s halaqat and volunteers as the Rabata New Jersey chapter lead.
