An illuminating 2-day Seerah Retreat’ with a Seerah specialist, Shaykh Faid Muhammad Sa’id from London!
Every detail about Prophet Muhammad is of great importance for us to affirm our faith and our commitment to Islam, Allah and His Messenger. Understanding the events of Prophet Muhammad’s life will also bring clarity to our understanding of the Holy Quran.
We cannot begin to love Prophet Muhammad if we do not know about him, his sacrifices, struggles, trials, tribulations, achievements and joys. In fact, learning the Seerah will also benefit us in coping and conducting our own lives, and through the Seerah, we can be hopeful when we are faced with various trials and tribulations.
The Seerah Retreat is also about knowing the status of our beloved Prophet Muhammad in deep and loving detail. We know from Prophetic traditions (hadith) that our faith is not complete till we love Allah’s Messenger (s) more than our “father, children and all mankind”.
// “Say: If ye do love Allah, follow me [i.e. Muhammad]: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: For Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
– Holy Quran: 3:31
// “You have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah.
– Holy Quran: 33:21
