“Lantern of the Path” is a book written by Imam Jafar Sadiq (as), which is the inspiration behind this website, one for the London based followers of Prophet Muhammad (saws) and his Ahlulbayt to have a place where primarily English educational resources and information is organised for them. We welcome all Islamic schools of thought, as well as anyone interested in increasing their worldly knowledge, to get involved.
Many people have disregarded Islam’s true message, and focus more on the do’s and dont’s whilst spirituality has been stripped away from this beautiful way of life for many practising it. We are hoping to work towards bringing spirituality back into our lives by increasing our knowledge on these teachings. We want to unite our community, by having one place where we can organise all our events, organise different types of lectures and lessons, poems, news, articles and debates, opinions and whatever else may help us in increasing our knowledge and improving our inner selves. There will be areas on the site for those with limited knowledge of the Ahlulbayt who are interested, as well as more advanced lessons from various books that will be compiled. The book which inspired this website will be available for all to read. Insha’Allah we can all work together to progress. I would just like to credit and thank Al-islam.org as much of their information was used in order to compile this website.
