Bismi’Llāhi ir-Rahmān ir-Rahīm.

In the Name of Allāh, the Universally Merciful, the Singularly Compassionate.


The educational arm of the Hakim Wellness Project—the Hakim Wellness Academy—is a collection of discrete and long-term TIHM training opportunities. After years of diligent study and practice, I have curated a unique curriculum which not only teaches a model of healing, but offers a perspective on how to walk through life.

Inasmuch as everything in existence emanates from the One Source ﷻ, one’s way of being must be an expression of the Sacred ﷻ. For a health care practitioner, it is essential to establish a point of reference by which one can triangulate his/her relationship to the Divine Reality ﷻ in order to see truly. This is an essential step in holding space for healing.

In the Noble Qur’ān, Allāh ﷻ states plainly,

. . . and (Hu ) revealed the criterion for discernment (3:4:5-6).

In every moment, we are given exactly what we need, but this wisdom is only accessible to us through presence, listening, sincerity, humility, and complete self-surrender. Whether it is during a 5-day retreat event or the three-year TIHM certification program, our students are grounded in daily spiritual practices—salāt, murāqaba, and structure and energy-body training—to cultivate a clear alignment with Truth ﷻ.

The key principle which underpins our curriculum is experiential learning. For centuries, sitting with a master—whether of healing, calligraphy, or engineering—was the standard for learning. Real learning extends beyond comprehending frameworks and theory. Real knowledge must be embodied, and to be embodied fully it must be lived daily. Our aim is not the edification of the intellect, but rather to sharpen the intellect and use it in service of the Spirit ﷻ. Consider the sage words of Mevlāna Jalāluddīn Rūmī:

 The penetrating intellect, when separated from its friends, 

becomes like an archer whose bow is broken.

[Mathnawī, Book III, 3693]

Didactic learning, diagnostic techniques, and treatment protocols are tools which are meaningless unless referenced by the Light of Truth ﷻ. As long as one’s perspective is unclear, the tools will likely be limited.

Before refining the intellect, we must purify the heart and align with the Spirit ﷻ. Self-development is a prerequisite for holding space for the healing of another human being. When the center of perception—the heart—is cluttered with projections there is no space to receive the reality of another soul. Our Awaken the Healer Within Program takes the student into a deep study and purification of the self, and this process continues even when learning theories, principles, diagnostics, and treatment techniques in the following years of our program.

Allāh ﷻ is the True Healer ﷻ. Current mainstream models of medicine are generally rooted in the ego, even though there are many wonderful and humble practitioners. Conventional medicine is by-and-large divorced from the Sacred ﷻ and successful treatment is thought to be an outcome of one’s intellectual prowess and capabilities, not a gift from the Divine ﷻ. Our aim is to train humble servants of Allāh ﷻ with a sincere desire to serve.


And Allāh ﷻ knows best.
