brilliant and insightful

This is a refreshing view point of the life of Muhammad (saws) through children's eyes. The work presents stories and events that may already be familiar to the listener in such a way that gives a fresh insight to its significance on how these events impacted the lives of the children that surrounded the Muhammad (saws). We are introduced to the companions/contemporaries of Muhammad (saws) such as Anas ibn Malik, Aisha, Fathima, Ali, his grand children Hassan & Hussein and many others are get a glimpse at their own interactions with the Prophet (saws) as children and their reflections on these events.
Not only does the enthusiasm for the author's passion of the subject come through during the lecture series but he also enthuses and engages the listener by relating the importance of nurturing our with love, kindness, playfulness and energy such as was the example of Muhaammad (saws).

Novel approach to the seerah

This is an excellent listen in as much as it is a refreshing approach to the lessons from the life of the Prophet SAW. It provides a unique insight into his interactions with children and how we can emulate him in our social lives. The presenter does over-dramatise at times and often goes off-point, stating facts that, while true, area not very helpful or indeed practical. Nevertheless, I commend his initiative at sharing his thoughts, feelings and emotions about the other equally important aspects of Muslim life as learned from the best of creation - a welcome break from the almost monotonous narratives heralded by battle cries. Jazaahullahu khairan.
