Frequently Asked Questions

A chance to have intimate discussions about Islam with people you care about. Talking to people helps us gain perspective and organize our thoughts.

So, we built an organized guide to clarity. Each topic covers questions that not only spark conversations about Islam, but lead to the answers.

It’s not a course. It’s not a club. It’s you with the people you want to gather—finding meaning through conversation.

Anyone. If you’ve ever struggled with concepts in Islam, or know someone who did, or if you haven’t, but you crave perspective and meaning and clarity in your life, this is for you.

It’s simple. Gather people—one, or two, or more. Choose a topic. Follow the guidelines. Have a conversation.

Conviction Circles provide people with a space for more in-depth and academic discussions of Yaqeen research papers led by a trained facilitator through regular, recurring meetings and dedicated content.

In contrast, Yaqeen ConversationsTM are discussion topics designed around one or more research papers and do not require a facilitator. Conversations are more informal; they are meant to give you some comprehension around important faith topics and can be accessed at any point in your journey to faith.

Conviction Circles are a great second step for a deeper understanding of the ideas in the papers. Once you complete the Conversations laid out here, we recommend joining an existing Conviction Circle in your locality, or starting your own Circle. Get more information here.

No worries, we got you covered. We give you a deck full of question cards for each conversation. They’re specifically designed to lead you and your group to answers—no reading required. It’s simple. It’s fun. It’s meaningful.

And if you’re craving more depth, you’ll always have access to all the papers, infographics, and videos.
