Depending on the number of weeks that you want the classes to cover, we can present the curriculum to cover at least nine (9) distinct sections seen here below:
- Arabia Before Al-Islam
- The Birth and Early Life of Muhammad
- The Call to Prophethood
- The Makkah Period
- The Hijrah
- The Madinah Period
- The Death of the Prophet
- The Aftermath
- The Impact of Muhammad Today
The course will be taught in a lecture style with students expected to participate both in Q & A each week in addition to sharing weekly reading responses. A midterm and final exam will be part of the course curriculum.
*Note - Depending on interest, I may be able to offer a future course specifically on "The Muslim American Spokesman for Human Salvation: The Language of Imam W. Deen Mohammed," compiled from his lectures, inshaa'Allah.
