MUSLIM HISTORY 101

“And for every community there is a messenger.
After their messenger has come, judgment is passed on them
in all fairness, and they are not wronged.”
– [Surah Yunus, Ayat 47]
One valuable source of lessons that pave our way forward for the future, is the past. History teaches you what theories won’t. Flip through the pages of the past and you find something striking. What we go through today carries more similarities than we care to admit. History has within its stories, lessons that enable us to look forward with clarity and confidence. The unknown future doesn’t seem too scary anymore.
This is precisely the reason why The Quran contains countless stories from the past, to show us how experiential knowledge in human history can elevate us to a greater understanding of our current state. The Sunnah carries on, recording The Golden Era of Muhammadan ﷺ Islam. The life of The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his Companions are documented for us to learn more about the specific challenges and solutions that are made for our life as the final community, before the ends of times.
So, what does our history have in store for us? Where do we stand in the timeline of The Muhammadan Ummah? Where are we heading towards?
Points Of Discussion Include:
• The Prophetic Era: The Golden Age of Muhammadan ﷺ Islam
• Rightly-Guided: The Four Caliphs Who Developed Our Young Ummah
• The Umayyad Dynasty: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
• The ‘Abbasid Dynasty: A Paradigm Shift in Islamic Academia
• Shadow Caliphates: Who Wants To Be A Khalifah?
• The Ottoman Empire: Between Hope & Failure
Time has never stood still since its beginning, and if we stagnate, we lose. We have so much to learn from what has happened, so that we can be sure of our steps ahead, as we fortify ourselves to move forward, through the challenges of the future.
This MasterClass, we sharpen our lenses to look back in time, starting from The Golden Era, the various dynasties that ruled The Muslim World, and the gradual decline of The Muslim Caliphacy. The world has changed so much, yet, the lessons to learn are remarkably relatable and astoundingly beneficial.
We go back in time, to learn our history, so that we can build our future.
