Study of Seerah for Modern Society
Date: Saturday 26th March 2011 Time: 10AM - 6PM
This is a Seerah seminar that you would not have come across before! MUHAMMAD pbuh - Example for The East & The West is a unique first-of-its-kind seminar that looks at the life of the Prophet Muhammad from the perspective of the various roles he played in the society. Unlike most of the other Seerah seminars which go through the life of the Prophet in a chronological way (although beneficial) this seminar picks out the various roles of the Prophet and shows how they can be made directly relevant to our lives in this modern Western society. The roles discussed include:
* Muhammad - The Messenger & Caller
* Muhammad - The Teacher & Educator
* Muhammad - The Leader & Guide
* Muhammad - The Spouse & Parent
* Muhammad - The Companion & Friend
* Muhammad - The Liberator
* Muhammad - The Social Worker
If you only had a chance to attend one Seerah seminar in your life then this may be the one to attend, InshaAllah.
It is not only the structure of the seminar which is unique, the teacher is unique too. The seminar is conducted by Shaykh Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi, the Hadith scholar and leading Islamic intellectual in Western Europe from the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, Oxford University.
As usual places are limited. This seminar promises to be even more popular than the previous seminar (Fiqh of Love - Marriage & Family in Islam) about which the attendees said...
"Jazak'Allah khair for a fabulous seminar. I truly enjoyed it and it was very much worth the trek from London to Cambridge" - Antti Kangaslahti, London
"The Fiqh of Love was the most amazing Islamic seminar I have ever attended. I have told all my friends and family about Sheikh Nadwi and his inspiring talk. All in all, I want to say that everything was brilliant. The food arrangements, prayer arrangements, book stall...everything. Thank you so much for making it a possibility" - Anosha Saleem, LLM Student, Cambridge University
"The sheikh explained with such elegant simplicity the duties and rights of wife and husband, and even of children. The fact that he stressed the Islamic responsibilities helped cast away many of the cultural shackles that often imprison Muslims in less than pleasant marriages. If everyone took this course before they got married, they would truly appreciate their spouses all the greater, and they would be better Muslims for doing so, raising stronger families. This would then reflect itself in the state of our Ummah. I also enjoyed the wisdom with which he regarded divorce. A solution provided by Allah, so that no one becomes an oppressor....MashaAllah, beautiful!" - Sarah Elgazzar, Cambridge
"JazakAllah for arranging such a wonderful and eye-opening seminar. Very well organized, very profound indeed. And I liked the interactive method of instruction" - Hassan Goreja, PhD Student, Cambridge University
"The sincerity and piety of sheikh Akram Nadawi was a great source of inspiration for me. His great knowledge was beautifully expressed masha' Allah in a very simple way that touches everyone in the audience regardless of their marital status. I came along with a friend who is a new Muslim not intending to attend all sessions, but we ended up there all day. The emphasis on the importance of the family, how simple are Islamic rules, the distinction between our cultural heritage and the true message of Islam and his openness to answer all audience questions, in my opinion were the reasons behind the great success of the session yesterday. It was a great honour for me to attend yesterday's session and I thank Allah for giving me the unique chance to attend a session by a great a scholar to guide me through out my marriage-life." - Mona ElQazzaz, PhD Student, Cambridge University
