Learning At Middle Ground

Fajr Club

Every Saturday Middle Ground members gather for Fajr Club: prayer and breakfast. We start the morning with Fajr Salah and then break bread with one another. It’s a great opportunity to get to know other members in the community as well as treat yourself to Shaykh Chef’s (Imam Marc!!) famous coffee and breakfast. Current time is 5:15AM. The front door code is 3923 and the rear entrance code is 0719*. Imam Marc’s Islam In-Depth class follows.

Understanding the Qur’an

After Fajr Club on Saturdays, Imam Marc teaches Understanding the Qur’an. This course explores such topics as tafsīr, ‘aqīdah (theology and creed), fiqh (jurisprudence), as well as insights into the Arabic language. The class also explores how we might understand Revelation in light of our culture as Americans.

We are currently reading the last portion of Sūrah al-Baqarah through such works by al-Sa’dī, Ibn Juzayy, al-Ṭabarī, and al-Qurṭubī and others.
