ISNA Main Session 2018
The Seerah of our Prophet ﷺ is one of the most important sources of our religion. It inspires, guides and empowers us to be better Muslims. Yet for many of us, the stories of the Seerah are abstract tit bits that might sound sensational, but we are unable to draw relevance to our modern lives from it.
This is a mistake and a shortcoming from our part. The Seerah is supposed to be a living message where we connect the dots from the past to our lives here in the present.
In this short yet powerful talk, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi draws a number of parallels with the historical events and the incidents that are occurring in our times. He highlights the role of the Prophet ﷺ as a Muslim, a leader and a role model who in numerous ways showed us that our goal in life is not to be accepted by the society by to be the pinnacles of morality.
This impactful talk serves as a wake-up call to the Muslim ummah who choose to turn a blind eye to the atrocities being committed worldwide when our Seerah teaches us otherwise.
The Seerah is a spring of water; it never ceases to furnish us with lessons so that the Seerah becomes not just tales from the past, but lessons for our contemporary lives.
