How beautiful was he (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) to behold? What teachings did he (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) stress most? With the Ummah so far from his teachings, how can we reclaim his inspiration?
He experienced in his 63 years of blessed life more tribulation than a cohort. He, (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam), was an orphan, a widower, battle scarred, and unjustly outcast. He outlived many of his children and buried some of his grandchildren. He, (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) was defamed, mocked, lied to and lied about. He was poisoned, stoned, and had to witness his companions tortured on account of their faith in his Message, (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam). He ascended the Heavens and perfected worship. He(sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) defended the weak and cured, miraculously by the power of Allah, the ill. He (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) epitomised compassion and comforted existence.
Join us for an unmissable journey through the life, teachings and triumph of the Chosen One – Al Mustafa (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) and fall deeper and deeper in love with Rasul ul Allah (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam).
This is not a study of the Seerah, it's a study of his Sunnah!
This course aims to offer a comprehensive and relevant introduction to the Prophet Muhammad (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) via a study of key four points: The Prophets person, his teachings, the struggle that he fought and his ultimate triumph.
Part I: The Prophet's person covers material from Imam al-Tirmidhi's reknown Shama'il al-Rasul as well as a discussion of the Prophetic Miracles.
Part II: In the second section the students will take the Prophet's (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) teachings through over 80 Prophetic traditions.
Part III: Seven unique but interdependent stages will outline his struggle and a very pertinent and useful, 21 point, analysis of the Prophetic methodology for teaching and instruction will be offered.
Part IV: the Prophet's Triumph will offer a study of the Battles of Badr and Uhud, the Conquest of Makkah, the Farewell Hajj pilgrimage
The course concludes with a discussion of the death of Muhammad (sullallahu alayhi wa sallam) and the students are left with a practical means of embracing part of his legacy in the list of supplications he would frequently make.

Sheikh Abu Abdissalam was born in Coventry and was raised in London. Graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the City University in London, his zeal for knowledge led him to give up a subsequently lucrative career in the computer industry to join Dar al-Hadith Al-Khayriyyah in the blessed city of Makkah where he obtained a degree in Islamic Studies, as well as a specialization in Hadith and Hadith Sciences.
During his time there, he has studied under many of the prominent scholars of our time. He has completed a degree at the Dar al-Hadith, Makkah.
In the course of his studies he has acquired ijazas for all of the six major books of Hadith (al-Bukhari, Muslim, al-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, al-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah). In addition to this, he has obtained ijazas for the Sharh, Aqidah Tahawiyyah of Ibn Abd al-Izz al-hanafi, Shaykh Muhammad Amin al-Harari's Sharh of the Muqadimmah of Muslim and Nuzhat al-Nazar Sharh Nukhbat al-Fikr of Ibn Hajar.
Abu Abdissalam has translated a number of Islamic texts from Arabic into English for the benefit of the English speaking Muslims around the world.
Abu Abdissalam also appears regularly on Islam Channel, a UK-based satellite channel which is currently broadcasting two of his series: 'Heavenly Pearls' and 'Stories of the Prophets'.
