Just wanted to share an amazing website I came across, a super-cool initiative that iA would be great to see across schools!
“Countless biographies of the Prophet Muhammad, who according to Muslims is the last Prophet sent as a mercy to all of mankind, already exist. The present work: Prophetic Timeline, an interactive timeline of Prophet Muhammad’s life, does not aim to compete with classical nor contemporary sources but rather use them to showcase his life in a unique interactive manner.
The content within the timeline focuses moderately on details of the accounts and historical facts but liberally seeks to draw out the deeper meanings, lessons and wisdoms of these events, which are applicable to the people of the 21st century as they were 1400 years ago.
More is known about Muhammad’s life than that of the founder of any other major faith, yet his story is frequently misunderstood, even deliberately distorted. It is the ambition of the Muslim Research & Development Foundation (MRDF) to create a product which would bring to light the character and personality of the Prophet in an unprecedented way. It is hoped to be a stepping stone towards attaching a social stigma to blasphemous, vulgar speech about the Prophet which the 21st century is witnessing all too often.
Success lies with God Alone. We ask Him to accept our efforts.”
