This is the Friday lecture given by Shaykh Yaser Birjas at the Islamic Center of Ann Arbor in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Please listen to it, and share it with others. He will be back at the Ann Arbor Mosque on Sunday December 12th, 2010.
Note: This lecture is in English, just to mention this that traditionally an Islamic speech/lecture starts in Arabic in a particular format. So please wait a minute until the actual lecture starts in English 🙂
Shaykh Yaser Birjas is originally from Palestine. He received his Bachelors degree from Islamic University of Madinah in 1996 in Fiqh & Usool, graduating as the class valedictorian. After graduating, he went on to work as a youth counselor and relief program aide in war-torn Bosnia. Thereafter, he immigrated to the U.S. and currently resides in Dallas, Texas. He is also an instructor at AlMaghrib Institute, where he teaches popular seminars such as Fiqh of Love, The Code Evolved, and Heavenly Hues.
The seminar was a great experience, and it was about the Prophet Muhammad as a human. It was about his Shama’il (characteristics) rather than his Seerah (historical events).
Al-Shama’il al-Muhammadia (the characteristics of Muhammad) is a study of the characteristics, traits, and attributes of the Prophet, peace be upon him. These characteristics include, and are not restricted to, his physical demeanor, his character/ manners, and those things which were exclusive to him. [The note book of the Seminar]
