PHILOSOPHY

The word “at-tayyib” is used in the Qur’an and Sunnah to describe actions, good deeds, people, speech, etc. This term is used as an adjective. Literally it means something that is good and wholesome. Imam Ibn Rajab (rahimahullah) interpreted the word as “at-tahir”, which means pure.

“Verily Allah the Exalted is pure.
He does not accept but that which is pure.
Allah commands the believers with what He commanded the Messengers.”
{al-Arba’in an-Nawawiyah of Imam an-Nawawi}

He Allah Azzawajjal says in the Qur’an:

“O you Messengers!
Eat of the good things and act righteously”

{al Qur’an, Surah al Mu’minoon, Ayah 51}

From this we understand that we cannot provide a service for our community to gain the bounties of Allah through means of impureness by mixing good deeds with some bad, passing off that which is Haram as ‘Halal’ and vice versa as the end product will not be accepted by Allah (Subhana Wataallah). An example is found in a man who owns a restaurant that serves Halal food but he also sells alcohol- his earnings will be Haram and rejected, likewise we aim to provide the most pure authentic Islamic education with consideration and care for our students and teachers by avoiding all that may lead to evil and all that maybe of doubt.

The obligation of seeking knowledge is continuing and constant upon the Muslims, this condition falls on both genders of Male and Female. Imam Ibn al Jawzi (rahimahullah) said:

“A woman is an accountable individual just as a man is.
She is obliged to seek knowledge of her duties so that she may perform them properly.” {Ahkaam al Nisaa’}

Tayyibun recognises that the vast majority of people have full time commitments that engage and absorb their time ranging from work, studies and family; these days in particular for our sisters certain difficulties are faced as to the environment in society at large, in public places and even amongst situations with Muslims that are not ideal nor conducive for them in going on the path of knowledge whilst trying retain their modesty.

It is therefore with consideration of all these factors in mind that tend to preoccupy us that Tayyibun aims to serve and assist such Muslims with varied commitments by providing a flexible approach to learning with teaching in a small group capacity, retaining an Islamic environment with segregation between the genders and bringing education on your own terms- at a time best suitable and convenient to yourself.

Through teachings of the Qu’ran and Sunnah, we aspire to nurture our Muslim community in the UK to espouse sound Islamic principles . This is done by promoting British and cohesive Islamic values to harbour good community relations such as respect, tolerance, justice and the elimination of bigotry.
