They are SHADOWS in the SUN

Their names are known

But their contributions are unknown


To the left, right, in front and back,

wherever he (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) looked, she was there.


He was beaten to a pulp for reciting the Quran aloud for the first time.

But he came back and did it again the next day anyway.


At the moment of his death,

the Mighty Throne of Allah (swt) shook!


These were men and women who surrounded the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam). We hear their names frequently, but how much do we really know about their contributions to Islam, to us?

Have you considered that today you are able to carry the Book of Allah because one man long ago sacrificed many sleepless nights to scrutinize every verse written on whatever animal hide, piece of wood, or stone that the companions could muster?

Have you considered that today your Islam was made possible because one woman long ago shielded the Prophet (sallah Allahu alayhi wassalam) with her entire body, bearing arrow after arrow impaling her body?

Or have you considered that today you comprehend the words of Allah (swt) because one boy long ago was made a prodigy, a genius, committed to the perpetual study of the Quran and its depth of wisdom?

In a specially prepared seminar, Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick gathers the remarkable contributions of the men and women around the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) to transform your kinship with the best generation to ever walk the earth.


The Living Legacy of the Sahabah

Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick will open your eyes to a world you have never been exposed to before. It was as if a film was removed from the lens of my eyes”  -Safa Al-Dabagh, Windsor

  • Fall in love with the men and women you will one day meet, insha Allah
  • Transform your kinship with these remarkable men and women

It is no surprise that the best man to ever walk the Earth would produce a generation without parallel neither before nor after. A generation of this calibre has shone so brightly, their impact will forever be felt until the end of time.

فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللَّهِ لِنتَ لَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ ۖ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الْأَمْرِ ۖ فَإِذَا

عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ

 So by mercy from Allah , [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them [the

Companions]. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they

would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness

for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then

rely upon Allah . Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].

Surat Aali Imran: 159

Already know the stories?

 .. so you think.

You read the books, heard the stories and already know enough?

  • Dr. Quick handpicked Companions that may be known by name but are least talked about in regards to their phenomenal contributions.

A Walk to Remember

إِذْ تَقُولُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَلَن يَكْفِيَكُمْ أَن يُمِدَّكُمْ رَبُّكُم بِثَلَاثَةِ آلَافٍ مِّنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ مُنزَلِينَ

[Remember] when you said to the believers, "Is it not sufficient for you that

your Lord should reinforce you with three thousand angels sent down?

Surat Aali Imran: 124

Our beloved Companions walked with the Angels, witnessed Jibreel (alayhissalam) in human form, were referred to by Allah (sometimes by name), and often defied the laws of physics. 

They were not superhuman; they were not mythical creatures. No, by Allah, they were fallible human beings who laughed, cried, and fell into temptation; but rose far above by their unbreakable faith and persistence.

And you will one day meet them, insha Allah.

They are SHADOWS in the SUN

 Their names are known

 And their contributions will become known
