Stories from the Life of Muhammad

Alexis Easton, MA, MDiv, CIS, Retired Christian Pastor

Certificate in Islamic Studies Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley

Muhammad is one of the most influential people in history. Muslims are to love Prophet Muhammad above everything and everyone except God. One of the ways they deepen their love is by studying his life, which in Arabic is called Sira. When non-Muslims learn about Muhammad's life, they are also blessed by gaining insight into the founder of Islam, into the genesis of Islam itself, and into the heart of Muslims today and throughout 1400 years of Islamic history.

This 3-part lecture series will begin with the onset of revelations when Muhammad was 40 and describe major events through his death.  Muhammad: His Birth and Early Life was featured in the summer 2016 OLLI@Pacific lecture series.  Summer Lecture Synopsis

Of Responses to Revelations, Part I  

Thu 9/29  6-7:30pm

Central United Methodist Church, 3700 Pacific Ave, Stockton

Muhammad begins receiving revelations in Mecca and shares them with a small, expanding circle. As the revelations threaten their traditions and power structure, the Meccans divide into devoted supporters and unyielding opponents. Free and open to the public.

Of the Move from Mecca to Medina, Part II

Thu 10/13  6-7:30pm

Central United Methodist Church, 3700 Pacific Ave, Stockton

At risk of imminent assassination, Muhammad emigrates to greater safety in Medina, but the conflict with Mecca continues to deepen and expand regionally. Free and open to the public.

Of Wars and Women, Peace and Passing, Part III

Thu 10/27  6-7:30pm

Central United Methodist Church, 3700 Pacific Ave, Stockton

Muhammad displays remarkable leadership both diplomatically and militarily, and his household expands through marriages. His prophetic mission culminates in the peaceful conquest of Mecca. Free and open to the public.
