  1. In 2012. Mufti Abdur Rahman did a 2 day course on spirituality and tasawuf

    I’m trying to find that course but can’t find it anywhere on youtube or on zamzamacademy.

    Please can you provide me a link for the course .
    If you have removed it, can you provide me the the audio lectures for my own individual use – I found the lectures so beneficial.
