Introducing Al-Kitab Club

February 18, 2018
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

Manchester ISoc would like to present Al-Kitab Club.

We can often feel overwhelmed by all of the things we wish to read, learn and benefit from. We tell ourselves we don’t have the time, and we struggle with making the time, to read in our busy lives. We try to juggle our university work and assignments, with social commitments and extracurriculars, barely finding time for anything else. If only there were more than 24 hours in a day! Finding effective motivation to encourage us to read more is tough, especially with all of the demands of our daily lives. Reading alongside Manchester ISoc with our monthly selections may be the solution to your problems. What better motivation than reading alongside your peers and having the opportunity to review and discuss the book at the end of each month? Not to mention, the hard work of choosing what to read will be done for you - all you need to do is follow along. We will be selecting a new book each month to read together, and at the end of the month we will be reviewing it online and holding a discussion in the comments. If you think you might be interested in joining, don’t hesitate! There is no better opportunity to motivate yourself to read more and increase in knowledge than this, trust me. It only seems right that the first book we will be reading is a book about the most important person in every Muslim’s life: Muhammad, peace, and blessings be upon him. There are countless books about the Prophet (PBUH) by numerous writers, all detailing the life of this incredible man. The book that seemed most highly regarded and well-reviewed was ‘Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources’ by Martin Lings. This book is an award-winning biography of Muhammad (PBUH), with incredible historical accuracy and fascinating detail, and is considered to be very accessible and readable by many. So, what are you waiting for? Find this book in your nearest library or bookshop, start reading, and we’ll see you all in a month insha’Allah for the discussion!  Happy reading!
