In this 8-part programme, Mufti Mohammed Ali will lead us through the Prophetic Seerah. The interactive and stimulating online sessions will provide a grounding in the message, mission and movement that Rasool Allah (SAW) led to transform Arabian society. He will also draw parallel examples from the Seerah, that will allow us to take on challenges of carrying Islam in the modern world.

The Seerah of Rasool Allah (SAW) is one of the critical elements of the Islamic culture. As Ali b. Husain b. Ali (may Allah (SWT) be please with them all) stated, “We used to teach the Maghazi (Seerah) of the Prophet (SAW) as we used to teach the Qur’an.”
