Seerat An Nabi SAW Class
Seerah Part 1:
The first of a pair of courses focused on providing a detailed, historical look at the Prophet’s life. Part 1 begins with a broader discussion of the 6th century world and Arab society, and then focuses on the Prophet’s childhood, his household, the beginning of Prophethood, Islam in Makkah, and the migration to Madinah.
• Get a full picture of the Prophet’s life
• Learn about the "Makkan" period of the Prophet’s life, through the migration to Madinah
• Understand the significance of the Makkan period
• Reflect on the meanings behind the occurrences in his life
• Relate the Sirah to your own life
Perfect for the young and the old, the new and the life-long Muslim
"There is indeed a good model for you in the Messenger of Allah - for the one who has hope in Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah profusely" (Quran 33:21).
In this verse and many others, Allah tells us that the key to our success is following the example of our Beloved Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. And the only way we can do this is through learning about his life.
The content of the course will not only include a detailed look at the Prophet’s life, but will also involve reflection on the meaning of the events in his life and how every aspect of his life is full of lessons for us.
This will enable you to establish a connection with him, peace and blessings be upon him, so that you are better able to take him as your model in everything that you do.
Based on material taken from Al-Shifa by Qadi Iyad, Muhammad by Martin Lings, Seerah Ibn Hashaam Seerat Rasooli Arabi and others, this course is for everyone—the young and the old, the new and the life-long Muslim. For those new, the course will give you a full picture of the Sirah; and for those "old", it is a reminder and a refresher with the addition of analysis and reflection.
By the end of this course, you will be able to explain the significance of the Makkan period of the Prophet’s life and relate events of the Sirah to your personal life.
The class will start at the end of August 2013 InshAllah. Time and date will be announced soon. Please register your interest via firstname.lastname@example.org
