    Excellent course, but what will make it even better is to have the facility to ask (at least a few) questions to course tutor, which is unfortunately not available.

    Initially I was using the videos online and I found that I was struggling to follow the course a bit.
    When I switched to the audio files I found it was flowing a lot better (since there are some parts like discussions and questions and answers which seem to be removed from the videos)

    Really enjoyed the course when switching to audio

    Salam everyone. I just completed this course. I can’t thank Br. Tawfique and the entire AlKauthar team enough for making it available. Please let me know about books, articles or websites that teach contemporary and proper Islamic finance. Also, please look into running a Real Deal 201; it will be immensely beneficial. May bless you and reward you.
