: Alqueria de Rosales, Granada.

Alqueria de Rosales is a Sharia compliant educational, cultural and residencial  complex, which has been offering for more than 16 years learning and research activities with a special focus on preserving the Muslim heritage and legacy of Al Andalus.

Alquería comes from the Arabic word, (قرية) Qarya, and refers to a small rural community or village. Alqueria de Rosales -Village of the Roses- is located near Puebla de Don Fadrique, a small 5,000 population village north of Granada province well conected to the to Murcia, Granada and Alicante international airports.

The institution was founded by Prof. Antonio Romero Roman (Prof. Abdussamad Romero).Born in Puebla de Don Fadrique, Granada on the 17th May 1953. Whilst involved in the world of cultural and arts, he embraced Islam in 1980. After his conversion, he moved with his family to Makkah (from 1984 until 1996) where he studied in the university of Umm Al-Qura and specialised in Arabic language and Islamic studies. In 1993 the Romero family vested the land in trust, creating a recognized charitable Waqf, named Azzagra Cultural Association, registered under the Ministry of Interior as non profitable institution. The Alqueria complex venue has 127 hectares rural farm located in the protected natural reserve of Sierra de Segura.

Speaker : The lectures are delivered by Ustadh Yahya Rhodus. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri. At the age of 19, he embraced Islam in Santa Clara, California. He began his study of Islam with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and visiting Mauritanian scholars such as Shaykh Khatri wuld Baybba and Shaykh Abdullah wuld Ahmadna. In 1998, Ustadh Yahya traveled to Mauritania to pursue a full-time course of study, where he learned from some of Mauritania's greatest scholars, including the distinguished, Murabit al-Hajj. He also spent an interim period in Damascus, Syria where he received formal education in the Arabic language, grammar, and Qur’anic recitation.

In 2000, Ustadh Yahya moved to Tarim, Yemen to continue his studies at the prestigious learning institute, Dar al-Mustafa. There, he spent his formative years studying with the renowned scholars, Habib 'Umar bin Hafiz and Habib ‘Ali al-Jifri, along with other local scholars. He studied various sciences including Tafsir, Hadith, theology, jurisprudence, legal theory, the Prophetic biography, and Arabic poetry.

In the latter part of 2005, Ustadh Yahya returned to the U.S. and served as a full-time teacher at Zaytuna Institute. He subsequently returned overseas to further his studies while he also participated in religious programs worldwide, lecturing, teaching, and translating. In 2008, he was the official translator for Habib ‘Ali al-Jifri at the Common Word Conference held at Yale University and he has translated for Habib 'Umar bin Hafiz at speaking engagements internationally.

Contents4 DVD's Lecture Summary :-

---35 : Divine Unity & Reliance On God (al-Tawhid wa’l-Tawakkul). Human beings find it hard not to be stressed by the unpredictable events of their lives. The wise person, however, who believes in God’s unity and power, seeks to place his trust in the Divine wisdom, a process which the Imam discusses in detail in this lesson.

---36: Love, Longing, Intimacy & Contentment (al-Mahabba wa’l-Shawq wa’l-Uns wa’l-Rida). God loves His creation, and human beings most especially; and we are called to love Him in return. This religious virtue turns life into a delight, as we recognise the signs of God’s love in creation and in other people, and learn to be satisfied with God’s decree at all times. The tongues is small, but can lead to immense calamities. Here spiritual guidance is offered on how to confront our habits of lying, slander, self-praise, mockery, obscenity, backbiting and bearing false witness.

---37: Intention, Truthfulness & Sincerity (al-Niyya wa’l-Ikhlas wa’l-Sidq) No matter how outwardly correct we may seem, without inward purity and sincerity our spiritual practice and our moral life are meaningless. Here we learn the importance of sincerity and right intention, and how to rectify our inward consciousness to ensure that everything we do is uplifted by a clear and good purpose.

---38: Vigil & Self-Examination (al-Muraqaba wa’l-Muhasaba) A healthy inner life depends on giving God His due, which means constant awareness of His actions and His watchfulness. We need to hold ourselves to account for our actions and our intentions, knowing that He sees the states of our heart.
