Riyad Al-Saliheen

Time: These short sessions are done after Fajr prayer on a daily-basis excepting Saturdays and Tuesdays.
Content: these sessions take the form of commentaries on the hadiths (legacy) of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). These commentaries cover different aspects of the Islamic traditions; for instance, historical, linguistical and exegetical.
Goals: these sessions aim at charging the spiritual batteries of those who make it to the masjid at the beginning of their day. It also aims at getting the attendants closer to the Islamic scholarly traditions by way of facilitating the terms the author of the book uses and further explicating the different juristic aspects of Islam.

Content: These sessions are a bit more specialized in terms of targeting a certain audience of the Bath Muslim youth. The sessions are more concerned with pure scholarly discussions as well as tackling contemporary issues that face Muslim youth.
