Imam Yassine is not only a scholar who founded a school of thought, called the Justice and Spirituality School, but he is also the leader and spiritual guide of a movement, called the Justice and Spirituality Movement, that translates the School into action.
The Justice and Spirituality School embodies a comprehensive approach, called the Prophetic Method, was developed by Imam Abdessalam Yassine to revive and renew Islam as it was originally taught by the Prophet, may God grant him blessings and peace, while responding to contemporary realities. It draws on the prophetic example in that it seeks to bring together a group of Muslims within a system conducive to a shared vision, a unified effort, and a shared progression on the spiritual path. And the School is therefore open for all who wish to join from all over the world.
Imam Yassine’s efforts didn’t stop at the visionary and theoretical stage by founding a school of thought. For years, he worked diligently to unite Muslim consciences and energies within an organized collective effort that crystallized into the Justice and Spirituality Movement, aiming at making positive and significant change, locally, nationally, and internationally for both Muslims and people of other faiths. Inside this organizational framework, members, men and women, are introduced to the virtues and branches of faith in practice, following the prophetic method and under the spiritual and organizational leadership of Imam Yassine and the School’s guiding council [majlis al-irshād].
