Description

"Say: 'Allah has spoken the truth. Follow, then, the religion of Ibrahim, who turned away from all that is false and inclined towards truth, and was not of the polytheists.'" (Qur'an 3:95)

"Indeed, there is for you a good example in Ibrahim and those with him..." (Qur'an 60:4)

In the depths of the night and the brightness of day, Ibrahim (as) looked at his people and proclaimed, “I do not like those who set”. And in the midst of crowds of his townsfolk, he was thrown into the raging fire yet remained patient and it was made cool for him. Ibrahim (as), mentioned approximately 70 times in the Quran, is praised as a close friend of Allah and among the prophets of strong determination (ulul ‘azam). He is known today as the father of the monotheistic faiths, and every year, millions gather to remember his journey in Makkah. The Qur’an describes him as an ummah (nation/leader) and even the Prophet Muhammad (s) is asked to follow his way.

How did this young boy from Kan’an reach such lofty heights? What made him so special as to be described as a Friend of Allah. And why is his journey is of such great significance for us? What does it mean to follow his way and why are we asked to do so in the Qur’an? Join us on this one day seminar to discover the true meaning of Iman and Islam, and the legacy and example that Ibrahim (as) has left for the world.

Cost: £20 including lunch.
