The aim of the reading and journaling circles is to establish an unconditional space where we can self-reflect and engage our higher-order thinking skills. It is recommended to observe mindful speaking and listening when engaging with others. The Hikmah Project is neither a replacement nor substitute for a tariqah or spiritual path nor is it an academic reading circle designed for debate and argument where the discourse is rooted in rational analysis. The circle isn’t exclusive to any particular perspective or school of thought but inclusive and open to all. Our pedagogy is rooted in emptying, peer-peer learning, and receptivity.

I’m a participant in The Secrets of Divine Love reading circle and the Ramadan circles led by Imam Abdul Karim. I’m very grateful to Allah to have guided me to the Hikma Project and to enable me to join these projects and circles. As a revert, I came to Islam through Sufism/ Islamic spirituality with an interest in Islamic metaphysics. For me, the Hikma Project is an enclave for these ideas to be explored and discussed, and on how they can be practiced within our din. The community here is very gentle, loving, and supportive. It’s such a joy to be in the circles receiving guidance, light, and insights in both the Ramadan Quran circle and the reading group. I am deeply moved by them after each session and have really strengthened my love of the din. They have supported and guided me on my journey I’m eternally grateful. May Allah grant this project success so that more seekers can be reached and benefit from it. Ameen. - Bo

Absolutely amazing content. Each guest is a practitioner and a master of their domain. Immensely beneficial knowledge with breadcrumbs and context to follow if one was interested in knowing and following more. Engaging interviewing style. - Shafique Memon

The Hikmah project is a welcoming place to learn and share for all. I am in eternal gratitude to the light that this project has added to my study of Sufism. The subject matter is always enriching as we learn about our hearts’ capabilities through humility and service to others. Bassem
