This book is perhaps the most frequently used and most commented upon
handbook in which the Prophet’s life, his qualities and miracles are
described in every detail. This book is highly regarded throughout
the Muslim world and is quick to acquaint the reader with the true
stature of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. Al-Shifa
gathers together all that is necessary to acquaint the reader with
the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and is able to instil within them the
esteem and respect which is due to him. Admission is free. Both
brothers and sisters are welcome. This course is non-residential.

Date: Monday 2nd June 2008
Time: 6.30 pm
Venue: Birmingham Midlands Institute, 9 Margaret Street, City Centre,

Many of our Prophets were poor or lived a simple lifestyle. Eradicating
poverty is central in many faiths, but what is the link between poverty
and climate change? What are the effects and what is the role of the
UN? Is it enough? The UN Association Birmingham Branch invites you to
its annual Diana Stableforth Memorial Lecture on the topic of Poverty,
Climate Change and the role of the United Nations. All welcome.

As-Suffa Institute presents:

AL-FIQH AL-AKBAR

with Mufti Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf

Date: Sunday 8th June 2008
Time: 2.00 pm – 7.00 pm
Venue: As-Suffa Institute, 25 Park Lane, Aston, Birmingham, B6 5DA

Al-Fiqh al-Akbar is one of the earliest texts written on Islamic
creed and one of the surviving works of Abu Hanifah, the Great
Imam of jurisprudence and theology. Studied for centuries in the
Muslim world, al-Fiqh al-Akbar offers a more nuanced and textured
approach to understanding divine oneness (tawhid), the focal point
of Islamic belief. It refines one’s understanding of the Creator,
the Messengers and divine communication, and enables one to gain
much-needed insight into the realities of this life and the events
of the hereafter. This classical work not only improves one’s
understanding of ‘aqida and deepens one’s appreciation of his or
her beliefs, it also endeavours to address questions, which, if
left unanswered, could leave insidious doubt and cause communal
division. Such questions include: Where is Allah? Does Allah
evolve? What constitutes true Islamic belief? Are prophets capable
of sinning? Is there creation beyond what we see? What comes after
death? Notable topics covered during the course include: Brief
origins of ‘Ilm al-Kalam; Different Sects – Ash’aris, Maturidis,
etc; Fundamentals of the Divine Oneness and True Faith; Importance
of Believing in One True Lord; Thorough Explanation of al-Fiqh
al-Akbar.

In view of the breadth of the course please register to secure
your place. Course material will be provided along with Imam
Abu Hanifah’s al-Fiqh al-Akbar explained by Abu al-Muntaha
al-Maghnisawi, with selections from ‘Ali al-Qari’s Commentary,
including Abu Hanifah’s Kitab al-Wasiyyah. All are welcome to
participate. The course charge is £10 and food will be served
afterwards.
