Imam Husain eHawza- Australia
Welcome to Imam Husain eHawza – your very own English School of Islamic Theology at your fingertips.
Here you have access to more than 500 academic lectures in English on various Islamic topics coupled with more than 5000 pages of information.
Islamic learning has predominantly been accessible in the Arabic, Farsi, Turkish and Urdu languages in countries most of us cannot visit. All this information in the form of academic levels in the English language is definitely a rare find. We have designed and created the first intense Islamic Theology Diploma in the more universal and scientific language of our age: English.
With eHawza you do not need to worry about issues such as travel and matching your timetables to your work hours.
You don`t need to worry about missing an important point during a lecture. You can always replay the lectures and listen to them as many times as you wish. Thus, the lecturers and the study material are always available for your convenience in your own time and place.
Alhamdulillah, with the blessings of the Almighty and the unlimited effort of all brothers and sisters involved, eHawza is finally available to all.
eHawza is designed to cater for beginners to Islamic Theology as there is no requirement for prerequisite courses to enrol. We take you on a step by step journey from the basic fundamentals of Islam to an in-depth world of Islamic wonder.
Although this Diploma is designed for people with no knowledge about Islam, it will benefit people of all levels of understanding.
However, should you find any course too basic, you may apply for accreditation and move on to the next level. (Accreditation requires a pass mark -55%- for every examination).
eHawza recommends that you take the courses in sequence to obtain maximum benefit as the Diploma is designed in such a way that each level is built upon the previous levels.
Almost all our lectures in the Diploma course are delivered by Dr Sheikh Mansour Leghaei who is the Religious Director of the Imam Husain Islamic Centre located in Sydney Australia since its establishment in 1997 and is the founder of eHawza.
Dr Leghaei was born in 1962 in Abadan , Iran . His main teachers in the advance studies (Bahs Kharej) in the Islamic Seminary of Qom include:
• The Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarim Shirazi who was his main teacher in ‘Principles of Jurisprudence` for five years.
• The Late Grand Ayatollah Jawad Tabrizi who was his main teacher in ‘Jurisprudence` for five years.
• The Grand Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani under whom he studied ‘the Principles of Jurisprudence` for one year.
• His main teacher in the sciences of Hadith and Rejaal was the Grand Ayatollah Musa Shobairy Zanjani.
• Ayatollah Hasan Hasan Zadeh Aamoli under whom he studied Sharhel-Esharaat.
• Ayatollah Jawadi Aamoli under whom he studied two volumes of al-Asfar (the most advanced text in transcendental philosophy).
• Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi and Sh. Muhammad Bahjat under whom he studied the book of al-Borhan of al-Shifa written by Avicenna.
• The Late Ayatollah Bahrol-Oloom Mirdamadi under whom he studied Sharhe Manazelu-Sa`erin in practical mysticism.
Dr Leghaei was posted to Australia in February 1994. Since then, with English being his third language, he has achieved success in delivering academic lectures and courses to reach the English speaking generations of Australians. Dr Leghaei has publications on various topics and his works are available in Farsi, Arabic and English.
