About Us

Essential Islam is an independent organisation with a vision defined by the slogan of ‘Ihya al-Sunnah’, which translates as ‘Reviving Sunnah’. We adhere firmly, without compromise, to the principles of the Prophetic way and the vast majority of Muslims - who have maintained and revived the sunnah for over fourteen hundred years.

We are from the Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah in belief and the followers of the great Imam, Abu Hanifa (Allah shower His Mercy upon him) in Fiqh. We are committed to the propagation and dissemination of sacred Islamic knowledge. Through which, we may in our become conscious of Allah in our hearts, precisely emulate the exemplar of the Prophet ﷺ, and follow in the footsteps of the Ulema.

Therefore - through our seminars, courses, publications, lectures, tours, and classes - we aim to revive the tradition of learning and teaching in Islam; where a teacher represents the spring of knowledge and righteousness, the continuation of the glorious past, and the embodiment of the blessing and light of an unbroken chain of transmission.

Essential Islam is also dedicated to the strengthening of our local and wider communities, which we hope to achieve through fashioning opportunities that tackle issues of disadvantage and exclusion head-on.
