The foundations of the religion are never going to alter. From era to era, from place to place, we rely on the same principles and contextualize them to solve the problems of our time that impact us all at a personal and collective level. 

We recommend you subscribe to our email list so you can stay up to date with the latest works we publish and view upcoming courses/events. 


By means of educational courses, creative writing, video excerpts, collections of historical artifacts, a focus on biographies and other future editions to the website, this platform will aim to serve as a gateway for you to the pious predecessors, scholars, noble companions and most importantly our beloved Prophet Muhammed ﷺ.


The Shafii_Pen exists to inspire you to seek sacred and beneficial knowledge, the most noble of journeys every Muslim can take. By following our work, we hope to support you in your journey of connecting with your creator, finding comfort in worship, and most importantly deriving benefit from the lessons of the past to do good in the present.

The ink pots, feather pens, manuscripts and scrolls of papers, entirely preserved or partially lost, have loyally served this great religion which God has promised to protect. Through the works and talents of great scholars who have preceded us in worship, wisdom, etiquette and understanding, we have found a connection to our ultimate purpose; worshipping Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى alone.
