Dr. Maher HathoutTime: 54 minutes 14 seconds
The growing hostility between the Muslims and Quraysh leads to the Battle of Badr. Why was the battle significant? Dr. Hathout discusses the Battle and highlights examples of democratic leadership from the Prophet.
As the Muslims settled in Medina, the Prophet Muhammad focused on three issues: the relationships between the Muslims and God, between one another, and between Muslims and non-Muslims. Also discussed are the Prophet’s first Khutba, the establishment of prayers, and the Medina Constitution.
As the blockage against Muslims in Mecca begins, a secret migration to Medina is formed as a way of escaping oppression. How did the Muslims leave and what was the result? Dr. Hathout also discusses Isra & Miraj and how it tested the faith and the trust of the Muslim believers.
The main reasons why the Prophet’s message was a threat to the Quraysh are examined. A close look at the early revelations that helped spiritually prepare him for his prophethood. The persecution of the Muslims and the first martyrs in Islam are discussed.
