About This Course


Dr. Khurram Khan

Director at MAC


This is (Part II) of the course on the Prophet’s Companions by Dr. Khurram Khan. In this part, Dr. Khan continues the journey with a number of the noble Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) who reflected the perfection of the character of the Prophet (PBUH) as they saw, spoke to, had meals with, and learned directly from him.

This unique generation heard the revelation of the Qur’an directly from the blessed lips of the Prophet (PBUH) and was able to implement and teach it to the next generation of believers. No other believers have the distinction of being the “Qur’anic Generation”.

In this two-part course, we follow the journey of many of the first generation of Companions (the Sahabah) and what their lives can teach us. Today, people are looking for role models, and we have manufactured artificial superheroes and characters to fill this human desire. Once we connect with the stories of these remarkable human beings, we will naturally have new inspirational role models we can relate to and admire.

Each segment is only a brief glimpse (10 minutes) into the life of the Companions and a more detailed study can be obtained via additional resources. Segments can be repeated or used as regular reminders.

This course is for everyone. The language and appropriateness of content are designed for all ages.
