Al-Mawrid Institute Canada

We hope you all have a great stay here and help us learn together! Feel free to share your ideas!

The Al-Mawrid discussion server on Discord aims to provide a platform for dialogue related to Javed Ahmad Ghamidi’s understanding of Islam. This is a forum for people who are sympathetic and curious to the contribution of Ghamidi to religious thought in Islam and to share resources to understand the views of his school. It is also a place for critical discussion where people may bring forward their own evidence-based views based on their own paradigms and religious schools of thought. Our members consist of people from a variety of backgrounds Including Sunni, Shia, Ibadi, and non-denominational backgrounds including those that formally follow traditional madhabs (e.g., Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’I, Ithna-Ashari, Zaydi) and those that are Ghayr-Muqalid following other methodologies (e.g., Salafi, Quranist, Progressive, Farahi).


We recognize in this conversation there is a role for

  • Transmitted knowledge coming from Quran and Sunnah,
  • Natural notions based on Fitra and Aql,
  • Universal methodologies based on sciences of language and history, and
  • Traditional methodologies from Islamic sciences and schools
