*Assalamu Alaikum MSA-ers!*

We hope you all are enjoying Ramadan and have been taking full advantage of
this blessed month. As we enter the last 10 days of Ramadan, think about
what you have accomplished in the past 20 days and what your goals are for
the remaining ones. Al-Bukhari and Muslim record from 'Aishah (RA) that
during the last ten days of Ramadan, the Messenger of Allah would wake his
wives up during the night and then remain apart from them (that is, being
busy in acts of worship). A narration in Muslim states: "He would strive
[to do acts of worship] during the last ten days of Ramadan more than he
would at any other time." Keep in mind that this may be the last chance we
have to witness this holy month, so make these last few days count!

*II) The SHAMA’IL by Shaykh Muhammad an-Ninowy: A FREE Prophetic Hadith
Intensive ** *

Imitation of Prophet Muhammad is Rooted in Love, and Love is Rooted in

World-renowned hadith scholar, Shaykh Muhammad an-Ninowy, will be our guide
on an incredible journey through the famous Shama'il of Imam at-Tirmithi,
400+ narrations (ahadith) describing in detail the beautiful and awesome
physical description, impeccable character, and radiant spirituality of the
last prophet sent to guide humanity to their full potential, Prophet
Muhammad (peace and blessings on him and his family). The Shama'il
culminates in a chapter on the reality of seeing Prophet Muhammad in dreams
and visions. Shaykh Muhammad will not only be transmitting the hadith
"texts" but will provide scholarly critique and analyses of selected hadith
"chains of transmission".

This is a rare opportunity for those who simply want to broaden and deepen
their knowledge of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings on him and his
family), those who are committed students of the Islamic Sciences, and
those who yearn for a truly spiritual connection to him beyond mere
emotional attachment.

All attendees of the entire course will receive an "ijaza" (license to
transmit) in the Shama'il at-Tirmithi at the course's conclusion.
