This course is dedicated for those who are interested in the history of earlier prophets mentioned in the holy Qur’an and narrated in classical works such as Ibn Kathir’s Al-Bidayah Wan-Nihayah and Qisasul Anbiya’. The course will cover the periods from the Creation of the Prophet Adam (alaihi salam) to the devastating floods of the Prophet Nuh (as), from the days of cruelty of Firawn to the times of the Prophet Musa (as), from the days of the Prophet Isa (as) to the coming of Prophet Muhammad salallahu alaihi wasallam. Participants will be intrigued with the life and times of ancient messengers and their communities.
Apart from historical points and captivating stories from the Qur’an, this course will also point to certain eternally esteemed values of brotherhood, sincerity, faithfulness, devotion, cooperation, peace and harmony amongst nations. It provides some information on geographical locations, names, cities, places of birth and tombs, as they are mentioned in the Qur’an.
As Muslims, we must believe in the Anbiya (Prophets) and Rusul(Messengers) as it is one of the six pillars of Iman (faith). They are sent as proof of Allah’s care for his creations to be guided and illuminated.
Note: This course is a required course for students of the Al-Husna Certificate in Traditional Islamic Studies. The course is also open to public. [website]
