Close your eyes for a moment & take yourself back in time ... Makkah - Year 610

Suddenly your skin warms as you feel the heat of the burning sun as Bilal radi Allahu anhu firmly testifies: "Ahadun, Ahad!"

You smile at the sight of Abu Hurayrah who is playing with a kitten in the courtyard of the ka'bah.

Your heart softens at the sight of the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam racing with his wife in the sands of the desert.

Your eyes tear as you listen to the eloquence of Hassan ibn Thabit as he praises the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam in verse, and you think to yourself – "How far we have come!"

From the gentleness and generosity of 'Uthman ibn 'Affan, to the eagerness and dedication of Abdallah ibn Umar, the lives of the Companions offer many lessons to learn from. From the prohibition of alcohol to the trials of poverty and war, the lives of the Companions were marked by numerous tests they were to overcome. While the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam and his Companions are no longer alive, the legacy they left remains. How much of their legacy are you living?

On the Shoulders of Giants:Lives of the Sahabah and Ahl ul-Bayt
Taught by Dr. Reda Bedeir

From Zero to Hero…

They were the best generation of humans to walk this earth. But they were still men and women, rich and poor, slave and freemen. What is it that made them so great?

In this Double-Weekend seminar, Dr. Reda Bedeir will take us on a journey through the lives of companions of the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam - from their spiritual journeys to life-changing lessons.

This seminar will enlighten you with:

1) Knowledge of the categories and classifications of the sahabah
2) Their status in light of Islam
3) An explanation of the meaning of "Ahl ul-Bayt."
4) The correct opinion on the rights and status of the Ahl ul-Bayt
5) How we – as Muslims living in the modern era - can learn to emulate the example of the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa salam and his beloved Companions.

"And the first foremost [in faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct - Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him..."
[Surah Tawbah, verse 100]

"If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
[Qur'an 3:31]

In the words of Umar ibn al-Khattab,
"We are a people whom Allah has honored with Islam and if we seek honor in other than it, Allah will humiliate us (again)."

It is said that the Arabs during the age of jahiliyah were among the most ignorant and corrupt of mankind. They killed their daughters, beat their slaves, and treated each other unjustly. But then came Islam and with it came a transformation of hearts and minds. Their entire society, indeed, the whole of mankind, has benefited as a result of their faith. What can you learn from the lives of these great Companions that will inspire similar changes in your life and the lives of those you love?

By the end of the class students will:

- Learn the conditions and categories of what makes a Sahabi
- Understand the special status and rights of the Sahabah
- Appreciate the sacrifices of the Companions to spread Islam
- Understand the approach of the Sahabah to solving the social, economic, and religious challenges they faced
- Understand the correct status of the Ahl ul-Bayt in the Aqeedah of Ahl al-Sunnah wa Jama'ah
- Beautify your character by learning and implementing the characteristics of the Sahabah in your life

Here's what students are saying about Dr. Reda....

"Masha'Allah he is definitely an elite teacher. He is entertaining and knows how to keep a balance of teaching a heavy knowledge based course as well as keeping us entertained with his comedy, his on-going competition, and his unique stories. SubhanAllah, many speakers end up recycling stories over and over again. Dr.Reda brings up stories and ahadith you never knew existed."
- Omar Khan, Montreal

"It's always sad when a loved one departs, and no one can deny that Dr Reda is special, but remember positive thinking that the Dr told us about. We are the lucky few who benefited from the vast knowledge that the Shaykh shared with us. We were the chosen few, because Allah loves us."
- Student, Bradford

"Dr Reda's style is a real cliff hanger! Like a well written novel, he brings the content alive, with personal anecdotes and stories from the Quran. The love of teaching is easily visible in every statement and its reflected in the way the class responds to his deep insights, and profound care that he takes to ensure the class is informative, interactive and more importantly that you benefit from the material. A true gem of an instructor, mashaAlah tabarakallah."
- SK, London UK
