It is essential to study the character of the Prophet ﷺ. We need to do so in order to re-define who he ﷺ is to us. We need to understand how the first generation of believers viewed the Messenger ﷺ: as Beloved, as Friend, as Father. Without this understanding, we will never be able to fully appreciate his Message. This subject is for all levels of learners, from the beginner to the mature student of knowledge. In reality, one can never get enough of hearing about the Beloved ﷺ. Go to the course page for more information

So often, we forget that Islam is not a standing place, it’s a Path. Our experience of Islam, then, is a journey. On this Straight Path towards our Lord, we encounter new sights and sounds each day as we draw ever closer to Meeting with our Lord.

Course details

Explore the life journey of the Greatest Man, may God’s peace continue to nourish his being and our connection to him. This subject is known in Arabic as the ‘Seerah,’ which comes from a verb that means ‘to travel.’ How did the one ﷺ who came closest to God travel through life? What did his ﷺ experience look like? It is imperative for us to contemplate the Journey of the Apostle of God ﷺ if we are to understand the meaning of life itself. He ﷺ is the one who exemplified the art of living—and dying too. As we trace his ﷺ blessed journey, may you come to appreciate the purpose of your journey. Go to the course page for more information

Shaykh Hamdi Ben Aissa – Wednesday – Ottawa

Course details

The best way to understand the Quran is by referring to the Quran itself: each of its verses helps us understand other verses. The best way to understand the lives of Prophets is by referring to the lives of other Prophets, for each Prophet is related to the others like the beads on a single rosary. All the Prophets of God have an understanding of God and a way of relating to Him that is only found amongst them. Our perceptions of Prophets have been distorted by the corruption of their stories over time. It’s time to hear the authentic version of these stories in order to feel greater love for these Shepherds of humanity. Go to the course page for more information
