Sunrise in Mecca

Imagine living at a time where the strong preyed over the weak. When people were enslaved to their desires. When erroneous cultural practices were held above religious morals. When there was much bloodshed. Sound familiar? In this crucible Allah sent a Messenger, his name was Muhammad. Find out how we can extract lessons from the life.


The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:  “None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his parent, his child and all of mankind put together.”  In order to love the Prophet fully (peace be upon him), and to embody that love by following his example, we must know who he was.

The course will enable participants in studying the Prophetic Biography, students will engage in a detailed examination of the Meccan period of the Prophet’s life, concluding with the Migration (hijrah) to Madina. Throughout, students will explore not only what the Prophet did, but also how to apply the lessons of his example more completely in their own lives.
