He took his people from the heart of polytheism to a belief in the One; from believing that there is no higher morality to a belief in a higher morality; from no belief in life after death into a mindset in which life after death dominated everything they did. How can we understand the immensity of his achievement ﷺ?

Sira: A Journey of Transformation with Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad details the extraordinary epic of the life of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Over the course of nine lectures the series covers various aspects of his blessed life and times from the preexisting Arabian context in which he was born right through to his death. Following this are three additional lectures that reflect on the Prophet's ﷺ miracles, universalism and how he is praised in communities across the world today.
