Mercy to All Creation- Emulating the Prophetic Character
Join us for a two-day workshop with Shaykh Zacharia al-Khatib, where we will study the character of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and how his ethics are relevant today in the 21st century.
The study material for this workshop will be based on sections from Imam Tirmidhi's book "al-Shama’il al-Muhamadiyyah".
Key workshop themes include:
- Then and now: How different was 7th century Arabia from today's Western society?
- Navigating life as a young Muslim
- Family relationships
- Rising above individual concerns to build strong communities of unbound love and mercy
