Servants of the All-Merciful with Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Allah is the All-Merciful (al-Rahman). He created all creation as an expression of Mercy, and He deals with creation on the basis of Mercy. The most beloved servants of Allah are those who most manifest Mercy.
In this six-week SeekersHub Global Study Circle, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will share a beautiful explanation of the qualities of “the true servants of the All-Merciful,” from Surat al-Furqan in the Qur’an. (25.63-77)
These verses mention the qualities of faith, character, and conduct that make one of the most beloved servants of Allah–and we will see, through dipping into the oceans of the great Qur’anic commentaries and classical scholarship, how to attain these qualities. We will also see how the Messenger of Mercy (peace and blessings be upon him) embodied and exemplified these qualities, because–as his wife Sayyida A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) explained, “Truly, his character was the Qur’an.”
Starts: July 5th in Toronto, available July 6th for Global Circles.
Duration: 6 weeks

What are SeekersHub Study Circles?
Circles are free online community-focused study groups broadcast to centers across the world. Each study group covers key Islamic topics in an inspiring, engaging manner. Circles are led by some of our senior scholars and seek to promote (1) individual faith and learning and (2) community building by gathering together individuals for Islamic learning in their own community and instilling in them the Prophetic concern for service.
Why join a SeekersHub Study Circle?
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said,
“Be with the group, and beware of remaining alone, for the Devil is close to the one alone, and more distant from two. Whoever seeks the vast expanses of Paradise should hold fast to the group.” [Ahmad, Tirmidhi, and others–rigorously authentic]
Unfortunately, many Muslims in the West live in fragmented communities and complain of a lack of direction, or unity—our Circles aims to reverse this. By bringing Muslims together in their own community through interactive and motivating study groups, Circles hopes to provide for your community a means for it to attain to excellence in a manner befitting the honorific title “Community of Muhammad” (peace and blessings be upon him).
Besides what one gains from the services themselves, SeekersHub Study Circles also hopes to motivate attendees to become active members of their community by not just helping fellow Muslims, but all those in need.
Study Circles are globally accessible, with locally run Circles on nearly every continent. To find out if there is a Circle near you, please click here.
