“What the community needs desperately is not an abundance of ‘ulama who can give fatwa, but more Muslims who practice what they learn – even if it be a little – with much sincerity” – Ustazah Zulaikhah

Beyond Just Knowledge
“Today, the knowledge of the Shariah is available everywhere. It is the knowledge on how to deal with one another – to be human – that is missing. But you see, if you leave just one Sunnah of Rasulullah ﷺ, its repercussions will be felt everywhere, and it will affect everything!”
“We need to learn how to be human again so that our attempts to do good do not unknowingly evolve into an impediment to goodness,” Ustazah Zulaikhah reminded. “If you leave just one Sunnah of Rasulullah ﷺ, its repercussions will be felt everywhere, and it will affect everything!” – Ustazah Zulaikhah
Pesantren Zulaikhah: Learning How To Be Human
“During the time I was studying in Dar az-Zahra’,” Ustazah Zulaikha recalled, “Habib ‘Umar always made sure that a couple of the elderly who needed care lived with us. Between us students, we would take turns feeding the grannies, accompanying them to the toilet, and just generally serving them in whatever way they needed to be helped. One granny couldn’t even walk, and that was a time without wheelchairs.
“If one day, inshaAllah, Allāh Subḥānahu Wa Ta’Ala gifts me a pesantren,” Ustazah Zulaikhah chuckled, “I’ll make sure I’ll invite the poor aged to live with us so that students will learn the same lessons Habib ‘Umar wanted to teach. Education, combined with lessons such as these, will inshaAllah allow these students to graduate as daughters, sisters, mothers and educators with both the mind and heart to nurture a new generation of healthy, contributing Muslims.”
