Shaykh Abdulbary Yahya

Bristol, UK

Dec 2 - 4

The entire city gathered at the outskirts…
...children, women, and men…
...exhilarated, breathless, nervous...
...anticipating the Prophet's (ﷺ) ….

"What if you too welcomed the Prophet (ﷺ) back into your life,
no longer a distant story, but deeply human and personal?"

Imagine if the Prophet (ﷺ) walked into your life today…

Which emotions would you intensely feel?
How drastically would your life transform?
This is the man people loved more than their own mothers, children and selves...
...the man children flocked to for attention, compassion and fun.
...the man who transformed warring tribes into a single nation of light.
Imagine the impact when you truly welcome him into your heart.

If there were no miracle except the Seerah of the Prophet (ﷺ), then it would suffice as the greatest miracle!
- Ibn Hajar

The most underappreciated element of his life (ﷺ) … that he was human…

...and he engaged with fallible humans… not superheros, legends or mythical creatures.

The Prophet (ﷺ) dealt with every demographic…

  • Raised diverse communities of varied races, religions, backgrounds
  • Inspired and empowered youth with positions of leadership
  • Counseled marriages and divorces
  • Encouraged female involvement and education
  • Experienced loss, grieved with widows and orphans
  • Consulted and learned from all ages and ethnicities
  • Confronted elements of racism, sexism and abuse
  • Exemplified hope and mercy for sinners
  • Rehabilitated criminals and secured justice for all
  • Arbitrated heated disputes between Muslims and non-Muslims

Do you not wish you could love him even more?

None of you believes until I am dearer to him than his own father, his child, and all of mankind
- Ibn Hajar

Nothing rejuvenates one’s faith, love and hope like learning the life, mannerisms, and decision-making of the Prophet (ﷺ)

“The Prophet (ﷺ) has died!”

Does that statement not hurt your heart? Make you shed tears?

It should.

And it won’t until you relive his life and legacy.

This is NOT a Seerah class…

...this is a transformational EVENT aimed at UNDERSTANDING the life of the Prophet (ﷺ) so you can relate, relive and inspire.

You will be encouraged to think critically about the decision-making process of the Prophet (ﷺ)...whether you are a beginner or advanced student of the Seerah.

You can freely ask and discuss contentious issues like…

  • Marriages of the Prophet (ﷺ)
  • Aftermath of Battle of the Trench
  • Spreading of the religion (by the sword?)
  • Aspects of Shariah (stoning, cutting of the hand, etc.)
  • Varied dealings with hypocrites, Jews and Christians

This is the most epic story ever told...

The Prophet (ﷺ) transformed the feuding city of Yathrib into City of Light, Madinat ul-Nabiy.

The journey of 10 years makes up the bulk of the Seerah. In it we discover the spirit of Islam, the foundation of our religion:

  • The era in which divine laws were revealed and taught
  • The most just charter ever established: The Charter of Madinah
  • The best sermon ever given at the Farewell Hajj

The Madinan Seerah is filled with stories of…

  • Joy and laughter
  • Hurt and loss
  • Victory and defeat
  • Trust and betrayal
  • Friendship and brotherhood
  • Forgiveness and new beginnings

In it is the blueprint for rebuilding our families, communities and organizations

In it is your HOMECOMING.

Shaykh Abdulbary Yahya

Shaykh AbdulBary Yahya is known as the most laid back, easy-going instructor in the AlMaghrib line-up. He is often used as the example for patience at its best, and is famous for his personal funny experiences that he uses wittingly to teach and help you remember an Islamic concept.

Born in Vietnam during the Vietnam War, Shaykh AbdulBary immigrated to the U.S. with his family. He grew up in Seattle, WA and began his studies at the Islamic University of Madinah. It was at the University that he befriended Muhammad Alshareef, as they sat next to each other in the first year of their studies. After graduating from the Islamic University of Madinah's College of Shari'ah, AbdulBary Yahya returned to Vietnam and Cambodia and became a teacher and director of the Umm al-Qura Charity Organization in Vietnam.

He is currently the Imam of Masjid Jaamiul Muslimeen in Seattle, WA. He also holds the positions of President of the Cham Refugee Community and Vice-President of the Islamic Center of Washington State.


We started up in 2002 with a simple question - how could we teach you Islam in a way that was fun, social, quality, spiritual, and oh yeah, academic?

We asked around, and it turned out people wanted teachers who knew their stuff and who didn't turn learning Islam into a snoozefest, they wanted super quality and they didn't want endless weeks of lectures that would get in the way of their busy lives.

We listened. And AlMaghrib Institute was born. Based upon an ethos of excellence and a refusal to accept excuses for poor quality, we offered single and double-weekend seminars, with the most engaging instructors around, using top professional multi-media materials. Since that time, your response has been insane! You’ve asked us to establish chapters (also known as Qabeelahs) in over 40 cities worldwide, from North America, to Europe, to Asia, to the Middle East and to Australia too! Amazingly, we've now taught the Islamic Sciences to over 80,000 unique students and growing every day.

With the blessings of Allah, Most High, AlMaghrib is now the leading Institute teaching premiere Islamic education in the West with the largest on-site student body. Year by year, we’ve set the standard and launched exciting new projects, inspired so many more to do great work in their communities, and raised the bar on how knowledge is not only sought...but loved!

AlMaghrib is exceptionally selective about its instructors to ensure that all of them are fluent in the language of instruction. It delights us and our student body that our seminars are taught by highly specialized scholars and educators who are among the best in their field, bar none.

Take the website for a spin: discover our seminars, explore the curriculum, find out about our high-impact projects, log in to your MyAlMaghrib Student Portal, and engage with us on our social networks. We think you will agree that what we offer by the Will of Allah is nothing but the best.

AlMaghrib is a non-profit organization.
