The Sublime Qualities and Portrait of Muhammad ﷺ


The Shamail Muhammadiya is a fascinating selection of hadith compiled by the ninth-century scholar Imam at-Tirmidhi that humanizes the Prophet for modern audiences, presenting him through the eyes of contemporaries who comment not only on his spiritual demeanor and qualities but also on his physical appearance and mannerisms—including his hairdressing, his sitting posture, his sandals and turban, his armor, his favorite condiments, and his jests and laughter.

Dr Ali Hussain will bring you into an opening onto the roots of the Islamic spiritual tradition, a process of transformation in the individual that was integrally linked to one’s adherence, both inwardly and outwardly, to the example of the Prophet Muhammad. The degree to which we imbibe ourselves with the Nabawi-centric model was the degree how we can perceive our own Islamic spirituality.

The lessons are designed to be a portrait of a prophet in all its intimacy and detail, and will be a timeless testimony to the aspirations of all those who wish to be close to the Prophet and emulate his character.
