USTĀDH ASHIR KIRK
Have you ever seen 50 people attend a Zoom program for 6 hours straight and nobody leaves early! Well, I know of a program where I witnessed that firsthand, and I was not the least bit surprised. The interesting thing is that it wasn’t even a main session. It was a voluntary session after the program had ended!
If anyone is interested in attending a literally life-changing sīrah retreat organized by Lanturna, hit me up. That is where I had the experience I mentioned above. My family attended the last one and my wife said, “I felt like I was actually there,” in reference to the session where El-Hajj Hisham Mahmoud was teaching about the Cave Ḥirāʾ moment. They also have an amazing thing they do at the end called “Vanguard,” but I don’t know if I’m allowed to disclose the details of that publicly. What I can say is that it is deeply emotional and may cause tears to flow. I even got choked up a few times. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that you may have never attended a sīrah program like it.

At the dawn of revelation, the Prophet ﷺ was commanded وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثْ “And as for the blessing of thy Lord, proclaim it!” (al-Ḍuḥā 93:11). And toward the eve of his passing, he instructed those present to inform those absent.
