Verily, I have left amongst you the book of Allah and the example of His Messenger. If you hold fast to it, you shall never go astray.
From the farewell sermon of the Prophet
We may have heard about the example of the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) before, but have we? If his life is just a story to us, and nothing more, then we have not truly heard it. If our eyes do not shed tears pondering over his beautiful character, then we do not truly know him. If our moral character is not a reflection of his Sunnah then there is more that we need to learn.
Join Al-Madina Institute in “A Portrait of the Prophet: Reflections on the Messenger of Allah“, a one-day conference devoted to reinvigorating our lives by contemplating on the light and mercy of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).
Emphasizing the relevance this contemplation has in our own personal journey towards our Creator, “A Portrait of the Prophet” will focus on internalizing the Prophetic message and applying it to our everyday life, while cultivating the immense love for the Messenger that is necessary for its proper application.
Develop a better focus in your life by gaining a better picture of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) in Al-Madina Institute’s “A Portrait of the Prophet”, with Imam Suhaib Webb, Imam Khalil Abdur-Rashid, Shaykha Reima Yousef, Ustadh Moutasem Atiya, and myself.
The event will be held at New Brunswick Islamic Center, 1330 Livingston Ave, North Brunswick, NJ 08902 on November 3rd from 10am to 8pm.
UPDATE: Sadly, this event has been canceled due to hurricane Sandy. Keep tuned to the al-Madinah Institute’s website for future events.
