In the Name of Allah the most Gracious most Merciful

In this course we will explore the Seerah of the beloved prophet SAW and Forty Hadith of Imam Nawawi, its teachings, and practical ways we can adopt them in our lives. The collection of ahadith covers various themes for a comprehensive understanding of Islam and clear guidelines for powerful personal and societal change.


Immersing ourselves in studying the inspirational life of the Prophet SAW is the most effective and emotional way to increase our love for him (SAW)from birth/upbringing, life before and after Prophethood, his family life, major events, the struggles he (SAW) faced, the battles he fought and so much more

The sayings of the Prophet (saw) are the second most important source of knowledge in Islam after the Qur’an. They, along with the Qur’an, are the very foundations of our faith from which we take our guidance. The prophetic narrations have been preserved by the scholars of Islam, and have been passed down throughout the centuries from generation to generation, right up to our time. Studying his (saw) teachings and advices, as well as making an earnest effort to implement them into our daily lives is something all Muslims should work towards, and emulating him is something we should all aspire to do.

A Selection of Al-Nawawi’s Forty Hadith introduces and explores the seminal Hadith collection of the seventh century Damascene polymath Yahya al-Nawawi. Each of the selected thirteen prophetic reports represents an important principle of faith, providing an outstanding example of the depth and expanse of Prophetic teaching.

In this module, we will explore A Selection of Al-Nawawi’s Forty Hadith, its teaching, and practical ways we can adopt them in our lives. The collection of ahadith covers various themes for a comprehensive understanding of Islam and clear guidelines for powerful personal and societal change.
