Rekindlers of Islamic Spirit - Ahmad al-Fārūqī al-Sirhindī
Lecture 12: ​Ahmad al-Fārūqī al-Sirhindī
​​Date: Friday, October 8th, 2021 at 8 PM EST
Presented by: Dr. Ahmad Kutty

-----

This lecture series, inspired by the book Saviours of Islamic Spirit​ by the late Indian scholar and intellectual, Shaykh Abu ’l-Hasan ‘Ali Nadwi, is a story of the ebbs and flows of this Ummah; the challenges, the setbacks, and most importantly, the successes. It is a poignant story of the accomplishments, attainments, and triumphs that propelled the Ummah forward. It is a story told through extraordinary figures: the revivers, men of courage, vigour, and zeal, an elect group who were graced with divine determination to safeguard the spirit of God’s religion on earth. In other words, they were the saviours of the Islamic spirit.

Drawing on the lives of the most influential personalities of Islam, from Hasan al-Basri, ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, and Ghazali to Ibn al-Jawzi and Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi, this lecture series offers comfort and much-needed perspective, given the current situation of Muslims around the world. It aims to inspire Muslim youth and others to virtue and love for Allah and to provide role models of intellectual and spiritual excellence, at a time when people are looking for motivation from other sources. This history reminds us that we are not in the direst of situations.
