Portrait of a Prophet Weekend Conference at MET

 

A Weekend Conference On God's Beloved
January 19 - 21, 2018 | Limited Space
Muslim Educational Trust: 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223

Muslim Educational Trust invites you to the 5-speaker Portrait of a Prophet weekend conference by CelebrateMercy in Portland. This is a life-changing journey through 400 hadiths on the Prophet's inner and outer beauty. Recent Portrait of a Prophet conferences have had huge audiences. Earlier this year, it was sold out in Arizona with 200 attendees and, in October, it was packed in Virginia with over 300 attendees.

About the Conference 

Guest teachers will take students on an spiritual journey exploring Prophet Muhammad's ﷺ inner and outer beauty. From Friday night to Sunday, immerse yourself in the entire book of Imam Tirmidhi: a book of 400 hadiths describing the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

This program explores the persona of the Prophet, covering his family life, social interactions, physical appearance, worship, and final moments. By the end of the conference, students fall deeply in love with the Prophet - forever painting his portrait in their hearts. The conference contains 15 hours of lessons, interspersed with poetry (nasheeds) of love for the Prophet ﷺ. See an example of the schedule from a recent Portrait conference here.

All 400 hadiths are presented on slides in Arabic and English. There is beautiful commentary on many hadiths - with lessons for our own lives. Teachers also share touching lessons from the Prophet's life. Between sessions, the renowned Syrian munshid Mouaz Al-Nass will sing moving poetry of love for the Prophet. In Sunday's final session, a formal ijaza is signed for each student: a traditional completion certificate that has been given to students of the book for 1,000 years since Imam Tirmidhi's time.
