Traditional Islam is infrequently taught in the United States–frequently the focus of lectures at mosques is making money or seeking political power through elections or organization.
However this past weekend Shaykh Yahya Rhodus spoke on traditional spiritual issues, focusing on the tremendous stature and essential spiritual nature of Prophet Muhammad (s).
â€œHe is a human being, but not like other human beings… Prophet (s) is unique in what he received–the summation of all other revelations… He didnâ€™t â€˜just leaveâ€™, he is harisun aleikum.â€ Understanding Muhammad (s) is understanding Allah, said Shaykh Rhodus.
This speech at the Unity Center was the first of a Seerah series called The Razjan Tour, Fridays from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, February thru May. Admission is $50 for the entire series, which is not free although it is about Islamic knowledge.
