Welcome to the Qadriyya Association for the Revival of the Sunnah (Q.A.R.S.) in The Gambia website.
The term “Qadriyya” in our association’s name refers to our following the methodology and teachings of Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (RAA), which in turn are naturally in accordance with the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWS). Our teacher and spiritual guide is Shaikh ‘Abd al-Qadir’s direct descendant, Sherif Muhammad Haydara Al-Jilani. He is also the President of the Executive Committee of QARS – The Gambia.
Part of QARS’ mandate is to educate and to this end, we have embarked on a long-term plan to provide basic schooling to children in under-serviced/remote areas of The Gambia.
Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah gave lessons on ‘aqeedah (Islamic creed) using the primer ‘Aqeedat Al-Najaat (Creed of Deliverance) by Imam Muhammad Ibn Ja’far al-Kittani. This course was taught over 7 days in Cairo, Egypt from January 7-13, 2013. These are the recordings of each class and subsequent Q&A sessions.
