Masjid al-Hidaya

This Friday we move on to hadith #40 of Imam an-Nawawi’s famous collection and study a hadith with deep implications.

Brothers and sisters are both welcome to attend.

Hadith #40

Ibn Umar narrates that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said:

“Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a wayfarer.”

And Ibn Umar (ra) used to say,

“In the evening do not expect [to live until] the morning, and in the morning do not expect [to live until] the evening. Take [advantage of] your health before times of sickness, and [take advantage of] your life before your death.”

The format of our class will be to formally study the hadith for around 30 minutes, basing the study on classical works of Islamic scholarship, and then follow it up by another 20 minutes of open discussion amongst the attendees.

Location details: The class takes place on the second floor of the masjid in the attic room next to the women’s prayer hall.
