Travelling Light

Our Partners

The Travelling Light DVD project is possible through the generous support of the Muslim Academic Trust and Cambridge Muslim College. This institutional support is matched with the individual support of our volunteers and teachers who have spent countless hours working to provide an exceptional educational experience.

Our Mission

Travelling Light aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Imam al-Ghazali's magnum opus the Ihya Ulum al-Din through a systematic study of the forty books. Each scholar comments upon various books within the Ihya in an important site of Islamic History--bringing together sacred knowledge and history. The aim of the series is to promote sacred education worldwide regardless of location and/or background.

Our Locations

We aim to film the Travelling Light series in locations rich with Islamic intellectual and cultural heritage. Filming locations so far have included Spain, Iceland, New Mexico, Turkey, South Africa, Senegal, and Bosnia.
