Weekend III
Common Hadith from the Holy Prophet (s)
Milaad an-Nabi (s) is one of the best occasions to unite Muslims from all walks of life. For all Muslims venerate Prophet Muhammad and believe him to be the most perfect human being to walk on this earth. To celebrate his birth anniversary, we plan to look at some of the Hadiths from the Holy Prophet (s) which are common to both the Sunnis and the Shiah and their impact on the lives of Muslims. The webinar will look at the canonical books of Hadiths – the Sihaah Sitta by Sunni scholars and Kutubul Arba` by Shi’ite scholars and explore a few Prophetic sayings that are common to the two sects of Muslims.
Date: Sat/Sun March 19th/20th
Timings: 2:00 p.m. –  3.30p.m.  EST (Toronto/New York time)
