Zaytuna Institute - Hayward, California

Bismillah. Salla Allahu 'ala Sayyidina Muhammad

Assalamu'alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

Photos of the Zaytuna Institute...unfortunately, pictures cannot capture the immensely mubarak feeling one experiences by being there.

A poem outside the classroom:

"As minutes and seconds pass by and times takes its toll on a place
An age brings an end to all things built upon stones without grace"

The outside of the classroom/musalla:

The seat of the scholars, may Allah preserve them and allow us to benefit by them:

The inside of the classroom/musalla:

The beautifully kept Zaytuna grounds:

Zaytuna flower:

Masha'Allah, a beautiful place with beautiful people. Anyone that can go and visit/study there, really should. May Allah bless the people at Zaytuna. Ameen.




  1. Salaam Alaikum:

    Lovely photos, and the last part of the quote was especially striking:

    "An age brings an end to all things built upon stones without grace"

    Without the grace of Allah, all things pass. A building dedicated to His word and the path of love to Hu, will last as long as He wills, and not be subject to time's decay.

    Ya Haqq!

  2. As salaam alaikum.

    Just surfing through. Please come by insha'Allah if you have some time to read about Islam.

    Ma'as salaama,

    At the following link you will read about the 49,981 signatures have
    now been received on a terrible petition against the London 'Mega
    mosque' based on incorrect and inciteful information. This shows the
    existence of the intolerance and Islamophobia in Britain.

    The mosque would provide a place of worship and show Britains
    tolerance and multiculturalism. It is now the duty of Muslims and evey
    citizen to sign the counter-petition to BUILD the 'Mega Mosque'.
    Please sign at the link below, forward email it to your friends, post
    it in forums you visit and promote this on your site/blog.
