A Portrait of The Prophet (ﷺ)
“His character was the Qur’ān” Ummul-Mu’minīn ‘Āishah (Musnad al-Imām Aḥmad, 25813)
“…So I began looking at him (ﷺ) and at the (full) Moon, and to me he was more beautiful” Jābir bin ‘Abdillāh (Ash-Shamā’il al-Muḥammadiyyah, 10)
The example of the Prophet (ﷺ) embodies the standard of human conduct; the example to be followed. The devotion and love of the Ṣaḥābah for him was such that matters regarding his lifestyle, appearance, interactions and even dress were transmitted alongside his exhortations, warnings, commands, and advice. So, why is such importance given to this subject? Why is emulating the Prophetic lifestyle important for us in this day and age?
More About The Course
Join us for this 2-day event wherein our speakers will explore the importance of this topic, as well as lessons regarding the manners, dress, and appearance of the uswatun-haṣanah (perfect example) ﷺ by examining select aḥādīth from a seminal work of this genre, ash-Shamā’il al-Muḥammadiyyah, by Imām Abū ‘Īsā at-Tirmidhī.
Participants will receive a complimentary booklet containing the selected aḥādīth with which they may follow along and take notes and will have an opportunity to ask questions during the Open Q&A sessions held each day. A Kahoot! will also be played on the final day with prizes including a recently published, beautiful Arabic-English translation of the full Shamā’il. Breaks will be given during which food will be served.
