Dr. Abou El Fadl presents a "first-hand meeting" with the Prophet. Based on a review of original Arabic texts, this seminar:
1) Gives a view as to the moral lessons from the Prophet's life as a model for humanity;
2) Brings to life his moral example;
3) Provides a portrait of the living tradition of the Prophet's character: how he looked, smiled, laughed, talked, and got angry;
4) Presents the opportunity to learn to identify at a personal level with the identity of the Prophet as a symbol of someone real.
The seminar is neither a review of the institutional history of the Prophet's life, nor a chronology of events of his life.
