Friday Night Halaqa
Stories of the Prophets
Related by Dr. Tarek Elgawhary
Friday October 20, 2017
@ 7:00 PM
Following Maghrib Prayers
The majority of the verses and chapters in the Quran are stories. In fact, “the best stories” as the Quran asserts. The trials and tribulations of the people before us and the challenges and missions of the Prophets form an integral part of the Muslim consciousness and ethical system. Over the next several months, we will dedicate the Friday evening class to the Stories of the Prophets and unlock the hidden treasurers these tales have, as well as learn of the best people God sent to humanity.
