Course Outline


How does one describe the indescribable?

How does one form an image of that which cannot be portrayed?

That is what the Shama’il of the Prophet
does; it gives parameters to the imagination, allowing one to begin to think about the Prophet with a spiritual insight (without visualising or portraying him in a painting).

During this seven-week course, we will cover and expand on an abridgement of the Book of Shama’il compiled by Imam al-Tirmidhi; a fascinating selection of authentic narrations (hadith) which portray and embody the Prophet’s perfect moral, behavioural, and spiritual qualities.

With marvellous connotations of ornament, beauty, finery, and embellishment, Shama’il al-Tirmidhi opens with accounts of his physical appearance and mannerisms, leads onto his perfected spiritual demeanour and qualities, and culminates with the beatific vision of him .

O friends! If the home of the beloved Prophet is too far; if meeting him is too difficult; and if you have missed seeing him with your own eyes: Then do not miss reading his description!
