A female preacher! I honestly love this seerah series. Gender aside, I love how it isn't merely factual but she emphasises a lot on the heart, translating what we learn into actions instead of merely learning the seerah as facts. She uses When the Moon Split by Safiur Rahman Mubarakpuri as a guideline. I'm only on the second lesson but I'm loving it so far. 

The book that she uses is a very easy read. The PDF can be found HERE.


Till next month! <3

an excerpt from Kahlil Gibran's the prophet

Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
