(These notes are mostly unedited and represent a GISLA students understanding of the previous class the attended.) Student attend class on Sunday and submit their essay of what they learnt before the next class. Interestingly, as can be seen below the same class yields different lessons for each student even though the content of the class they hear was the same.)
Students graduate level 1 IF and WHEN they pass the Level one exam (some do it in 6 weeks and some take 3 years and counting…) and students from anywhere in the world can test out to pass and earn the GISLA Level one trophy)
Week 2 notes by WS male age 19 This day of class I was really worried. I was in Maryland and was really late for class. I thought that I will have to do 3 push up to cover up for lazy attitude but thanks God that wasn’t the case, my professor was really nice, and he didn’t say anything about it.
As soon as we entered the class, we saw 3 new members in class. One guy was from turkey, I completely forget his name, but he was an Immigration lawyer. I learned about turkey that the way they teach Quran over there is very different from other places.
In turkey they really emphasis on the way Quran is read, it sounds beautiful. I also learned from the class that I am not the only one who faces difficulties in concentrating during salat.
The major takes away from class that day was that Islam also teaches us the how to do trading. It teaches us the antiquates and measure to be taken for transitions. For examples if you ever are in a verbal agreement you should make a written contract so have at least three witnesses.
We also learned that we need to be the best version of ourselves and be at the top positions to make a difference. To also learned about Sufism how they get connected with god. We also learned that scientist have discovered that Quran has a very unique frequency and how amazing it is.
