Why Fitra?

Every living thing has an inherent nature, created by God. To know God, we must know ourselves. God did not create humanity in (original) sin, but in Truth. 

“He created the heavens and the earth in truth. Supremely Exalted be He above all they associate with Him. Qur’ān 16:3

Why Fitra?

That truth, the innate recognition of the Creator in every soul is the fitra. When creatures align with their godly nature, they activate the potential for human perfection. 

Built by Prince Muhammad Ali Pasha (1875—1955)
to revive and pay homage to Islamic arts.
The palace design reflects the lifestyle of
the late 19th- and early 20th-century Egyptian
royal prince and heir apparent.

Why Fitra?

God is the axis of existence. When the intrinsic moral compass of the human being isn’t aligned to the gravitational force of divine guidance, we veer off course. When the hearts of men are not in the orbit of revelation, only destruction can they sow on Earth. 

Why Fitra?

The primordial nature of man doesn’t just bind us to our Lord but to all of humanity. When inequality and injustice tear apart our collective bond, only a return to the Creator of all can heal our rifts. 

Integrative of Ottoman, Arab Andalusian,
and Persian architectural styles, the building
is of the most stunning and unique historical
museums in Egypt
The estate is comprised of three main
enclosures - the residence, reception, and
throne palaces, surrounded by Persian
gardens, all encased within an outer wall
resembling medieval forts.

Why Fitra?

Our Master Muhammad is the culmination of human perfection. May Allah’s infinite peace & blessings be upon Rasūlullāh, his pure progeny & folk, along with his gleaming companions, illuminated inheritors and all loyal followers until the Last Day. 

Our Mission

Traditional Islamic learning is a cultivation of the human mind, heart, and spirit upon Divine Revelation. It is the continuation of the Prophetic mission as embodied by the deceased and living inheritors of sacred knowledge.
