He gave in this Masjid many lessons of different topics, such as Islamic Creed, interpretation of the Noble Quran, interpretation of the Prophetic Sunnah, Fiqh, Sirah and others.

Upon the requests of the knowledge seekers, he started to give Islamic lessons in other well-known Masjids in Damascus and Rural Damascus.

This beacon is officially called Sheikh Abdul Ghani Al-Nabulsi Complex for Islamic Sciences, whose founder was keen on choosing a group of qualified and dedicated teachers who have a message that aims at raising a generation that would be known for knowledge and steadfastness.
