“Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any difficulty. He is anxious over you, for the believers full of compassion, kindness, and mercy.” [At-Tawbah:128]
AlHasan alBasri said: I heard once that a tree cried from missing the Prophet. Are not then, a people who say that they love the Prophet, more worthy of crying from missing him?
And Anas radiallahu anhu used to say: “Wallahi I see the Prophet in my dreams every night… Except the odd nights.” Then he would fall down crying begging Allah to allow him to see his beloved even on the odd nights.
Welcome to the first in the series of indept courses on the life of the greatest man that ever lived. Join us as we relive the moments of his life in Makkah from before prophethood to after it and share with our beloved Prophet his times of joy and sorrow. The Mercy to the Worlds is unique in its teaching of Seerah, because it emphasises:
â€¢Authenticity to the highest degree from the works of some of the best muhaqiqeen such as Ibn Hajr rahimahullah.
â€¢Encourages passionate discourse about the effect of each of the major incidents of the Prophet’s life and how we can use it as a springboard to giving dawah.
â€¢Encourages critical analysis of the series of events and attempts to draw the maximum benefit from each.
â€¢Attempts to paint a complete picture of the life of the Prophet from all facets.
â€¢Is filled with the most amazing details and benefits gathered from the largest sources of seerah available.
“For me, the study of the seerah was a labour of love. I can’t wait to share the joy of studying seerah with my friends.” [Quote from a student of Knowledge]
“Its like walking with the Prophet, talking to the Prophet, crying with him, laughing with him. I have never experienced a joy greater than studying about my beloved Prophet.” [Quote from a student of Knowledge]
The believers will meet their Prophet at the pond of alKauthar on the plains of resurrection – is it not then appropriate that you study about him at alKauthar as well?

We are constantly reminded in the Qurâ€™an and Sunnah of the importance of gaining Islamic knowledge so as to apply it in our lives.
