About this Event

Timings: Tuesday Nights 7 - 8 Beginning Tuesday February16

Base Text: What the Living can do for the Dead by Dr.Shahrul Hussain (Included)

The believer must understand that there is a symbiotic relationship between inner peace (sakinah) and living a life with the End In Mind. Ironically, it is death that gives meaning to life. And preparation for death that inspires a good life.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has taught us that “Death is a gift for a believer” (Hakim, Baihaqi,& Mustadrak). This is not only because of what is promised after one has passed, but also because of the harmonious and focused lifestyle it encourages while one lives.

Naturally we value life and therefore have an aversion toward death. We don’t like talking or thinking about it. However, learning about death is pivotal in developing a healthy God-conscious, principle-centered lifestyle. Additionally, studies of this nature enable us to face and prepare for this inevitable phase of our lives and are effective in alleviating large amounts of stress.

The title of this course “The Best Day of My Life” has been taken from a lengthy supplication of a Bedouin Companion (May Allah be pleased with him) that was rewarded and endorsed by our Prophet Muhammad (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon Him) when he prayed:

اجعل خير عمري آخره، وخير عملي خواتيمه، وخير أيامي يوم ألقاك فيه

“Make my final years the best years, my last deed my best deed and the best day of my life the day I meet you (Allah)”

In summary, some of the primary areas that this course will Inshallah cover are:

What it means to live with The End In Mind.

How to pen a personal mission statement.

The final moments and days of The Prophet (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon Him) and some accounts of the final moments of the pious ( May Allah’s mercy be upon them)
