Instructors: Shaykh Faraz Rabbani & Shaykh Yusuf Weltch


Course Overview

This course covers the famous work - The Shifa - by the great scholar of Islam, Qadi Iyad. The book discusses the blessed person and life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from many different vantage points. Along with this, the author adds many other crucial issues that the Believer needs in their relationship with Allah and His Messenger.


Without having deep knowledge and understanding of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it because increasingly difficult to emulate him and given him the due reverence that a true role model deserves. For this reason, studying about the Prophet and his life proves to be the most effective means in repairing that ever-important connection between the Believer and the Prophet.


The diligent student will take from this course a broad and deeper understanding of the Prophet (peace be upon him), his status, his importance, and need of every Believer to love and follow Him. The student will also become familiar with the details of key events that took place in the life of the Prophet such as his birth, his night journey, his ascension, and more.


Learning Outcomes

• A deeper understanding of who the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is.

• Deeper insight into key events in his life (peace be upon him)

• A deeper knowledge of the true status of the Prophet (peace be upon him)

• A sense of love and reverence for the Prophet (peace be upon him).
