Help Ribāṭ continue its service to the ummah.
Ribāṭ has been conducting classes like Riyāḍ al-Ṣāliḥīn, Mālikī Fiqh, and the Prophetic Shamāʾil, as well as holding regular gatherings of remembrance which seem to be the most rare, yet most needed thing in these moments we share. All of this has been happening for the last year and a half, without charging anyone who attends one cent.
Far from being restricted to a geographical location, the recorded lessons from Ribāṭ are listened to far and wide. On top of our in-person attendees, currently we have about 2,500 listeners per week, 65% of which are spread through the United States, 10% of which are from Canada and the UK respectively, and the rest of which is spread out through Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
When calculated over the number of students that attend class, it comes out to about $8 per student per class, which is one of the lowest expenses you’ll find, and that doesn’t take into consideration the nearly tenfold increase in online engagements.
عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي بَكْرَةَ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: " اغْدُ عَالِمًا أَوْ مُتَعَلِّمًا أَوْ مُسْتَمِعًا أَوْ مُحِبًّا، وَلَا تَكُنِ الْخَامِسَةَ فَتَهْلِكَ. رواه البيهقي والبزّار واللفظ للبيهقي
ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Abī Bakrah related from the messenger of Allāh ﷺ that he said: “Be a person of knowledge, or a student, or one who listens to them or one who loves them, and don’t be of any fifth group, lest it destroy you.”
