In the Footsteps of my Beloved Series II has begun with a bang! The official launch was held on 19 November 2017, Sunday, at Masjid An-Nahdhah. Followed by a great success from last year’s series, the organising team, Blessings To All Team, had planned for a wide range activities that highlighted the outstanding characters of our Beloved, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)! The launch was attended by students from pre-school all the way to adults.
The launch of ‘In the Footsteps of my Beloved II’ had an exclusive exhibitionthat showcased items used by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) on a daily basis and his wise sayings on health, also known as Prophetic Medicine.
Besides the exhibition, the students had the opportunity to view some of the important historic moments of Islam featured in the documentary, ‘The Message’. Many students appreciated the video as it depicted the living conditions of the early Muslims and gave them a better understanding of the challenges by Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) and his companions.
The most exciting part of the launch was to engage in activities that brought out the outstanding qualities of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w), namely Al-Ihsaan (to be exemplary), Al-Birr (to do good to others), As-Sabr (to be resilient), Ar-Ridha (to be contented) and Ar-Rahmah (to be compassionate). Based on the different hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)’s characters, activities were planned to teach the Sunnah of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w).
Finally, the students jotted down their key takeaways from the launch on a big poster that reminds all of us at how Allah (s.w.t) himself commended our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) that he indeed had the best of characters and chose a souvenir badge that represented their favourite character of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) that they wished to emulate.
Indeed, the launch truly enabled many to follow the footsteps of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) by helping them realise the great qualities that allowed him to outshine mankind and inspiring them to emulate these characters to eventually earn the love of Allah (s.w.t), Insha Allah!
