Opening the Doors to the City of Light (Pearls 2015)

Ma sha Allah Pearls of the Qur'an 2016 is next month. Unfortunately, despite being blessed to be able to attend last years conference, I never got around to posting all of the notes I took there. I'm making an attempt to start the year off clearing out my folders so without further ado...


Description from the Program:

There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book. By which Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the was of peace and brings them out from darkness into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path. (Al-Maida, 5:15-16)

The city of Yathrib was racked by violence and conflict, until the Prophetic message entered the hearts of the people. After the Prophet migrated, the city became known as Al-Madina Al-Munawwarah, the Radiant City, illuminated by the light of Divine guidance and the best of Creation, the Messenger of God. The lift that Madina became after the darkness of Yathrib was a reality, with real human beings, not a distant utopian ideal. Its success, along with the entire ummah, was, and is predicated on the degree to which our hearts are receptive to the light of the Messenger. 

Speakers: Shaykh Omar Sulieman & Ustadh Moutasem Atiya 

I was able to find the 1st half of the lecture on YouTube.
