Allah (subhana wa ta`ala) says, "There has been indeed for you in the Messenger of Allah a good example to follow for those who have hopes in Allah and in the Day of Judgement and for the ones who remember Allah a lot." The life of our beloved Prophet (sal Allahu `alayhi wa salam) has been a great source of inspiration for Muslims throughout history. The study of his life, however, is not simply a history class; it is meant to change our lives and especially impact those of us who live in the West. This is what Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi in this beautiful speech has successfully highlighted. He discusses the ProphetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life from his early childhood raised in a pagan society; as a business man conducting work in a lawless city; as a caller to Allah against all odds; and finally as an immigrant living the remainder of his life away from his native city. Shaykh Muhammad remarkably draws parallels between the difficulties he endured and what we who have immigrated to the West continue to face.
