Retracing the Hijra (Part 1) – Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said

In this podcast Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said begins a new series titled: “ Retracing the Hijra”. He begins by explaining how the Hijri calendar began. The Muslims had a new era of goodness after the hijra (migration of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) from Mecca to Madina). Madina became a city of mercy, even to the hypocrites. Muharram became a sacred month as explained by the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). He (peace and blessings be upon him)  fasted during the month of Muharram. Shaykh Faid goes on to explain that one can not know the Qur’an and the sunna without knowing the Prophetic sira. He ends by explaining the sacrifices involved in making hijra.
