This subject covers the blessed life and times of the Noble Messenger (Seerah). The course will be based upon ‘Martin Lings, Muhammed’, work with a detailed commentary using innovative teaching methods and resources. Year 1 will cover the Meccan Period.
Students will learn about the life and times of the Noble Messenger Muhammad saw, an understanding of the Arab world prior to the coming of the Holy Prophet and about the life of the Holy Prophet from birth to demise. Amongst the plethora of Islamic disciplines, no subject is more descriptive and explanatory about the Holy Prophet, than Seerah. Learning about the trials he faced, and the responses he gave; the challenges he overcame and the wisdom and foresight he imparted is at the very core of the ‘Sacred Study’ programme.
Students will develop a deep admiration and appreciation of one of History’s most influential figures. This will include a greater realisation of the sacrifices The Holy Prophet and his companions made. Students will be able to nurture their esteem for the Holy Prophet’s personage and traits and develop a deep awareness of the importance of virtue, against which a human being is measured.
