During our first class we discussed the many reasons it is important for us to study the Life of Our Beloved Prophet (salalaahu alaihi wa salem).
From those reasons we mentioned were the following...
•That we wanted to learn from His character.
•To learn what was going on during the time the revelation was being revealed.
•To learn how the Prophet dealt with issues of sexism, racism, tribal violence and classism among other things that we are experiencing during our own times.
•Learning the difference between a Hadeeth and an Athar.
• Learning the difference between a Prophet/Naby and a Messenger/Rasool.
• How Islam may be the only organized religion in existence that takes rights of worship as we do during Hajj & Umrah by following the way of Hajer Umm Ismaeel.
From the Seerah we began with the beginning of Mecca and a brief history up until the years just before the birth of our Prophet Muhammad (salalaahu alaihi wa salem).
For our next Halaqah we will cover the birth of the Prophet up until the beginning of revelation at age 40.
All brothers are encouraged to study that period of time and join us for our next halaqah on Friday the 24th, 7-8pm back on 48th & Ashland.
