In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful
In the weekly Sunday class, The Life of the Prophet (ﷺ): Madinan Period, Sayyid Mohammed Assagaf covered the first year after the Migration (hijra) of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) from Makkah to Madinah.
The first year witnessed the Prophet’s entry into Madinah with a joyous reception from a Muslim community eagerly awaiting his arrival. In that year, the Muslims settled in Madinah after their persecution in Makkah; the Prophetic mosque was established; and Madinah became the Muslim community base.
Alongside recounting some of the main events of that year, Sayyid Mohammed narrated some intimate accounts of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He also drew some Prophetic life lessons from the events.
Some Words of Wisdom shared by Sayyid Mohammed:
“The light of the Prophet (ﷺ) filled Madina upon his arrival and extended to the rest of the world from there.”
“Love of the Messenger (ﷺ) is the essence of the deen. If the Prophet (ﷺ) loves you, then Allah loves you. What more do you need than that?”
“If we don’t see something akin to the love that the Companions had for the Prophet (ﷺ) translate into our lives, then we should realize that we are lacking something.”
“When the Prophet’s (ﷺ) mosque was built, it became the base to the Prophetic call. All the mosques and Islamic institutions around the world, if built with the right intentions and prophetic guidance, are branches of that base.”
“Everything we need could be found in the Prophetic biography (sira)… Some gnostics said that the prophetic era with it’s events and characters was an exemplary model, after which all eras are copies that have events and characters to the likeness of that model.”
