Clifton Road Invitation to Lectures

Update: I managed to get to all three talks and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thanks to all at KSIMC for their lovely hospitality and to Sayed Ali Abbas Razawi for a stimulating and thoughtful series as I tweeted after the first night 'experienced once again the beautiful gentle passion at the heart of Shi'a spirituality'

You can listen to the talks at

Sheikh Muhammed Amin Evans has sent out the following invitation from Clifton Road Mosque in Balsall Heath. I hope to attend on Saturday evening for the third talk

"The President of Clifton Road Mosque has asked me to convey an open invitation to organisations and individuals involved in interfaith, intra-faith or the City's life as a community to share three evenings with the members of KSIMC including three lectures on the life of Prophet Muhammad (saw) to mark the anniversary of his passing.  It is appreciated that not everyone will wish or be able to attend on all three evenings but we hope that many people will be able to accept our invitation and attend at least one of our gatherings.

Visitors are invited to arrive at the gates 45 minutes prior to the event start time.  Volunteers will then guide them to an assembly room for welcome drinks and conversation with Sayyid Razavi (the lecturer), President Br Shafik Hajji and I.  We will attempt to connect the lectures and provide some background to the events to be discussed so that you may more fully engage with the event.

Thursday 19 January at 8.00pm- 'The Prophet (saw) before the declaration of Prophethood'

Friday 20 January at 8.00pm- 'The Prophet (saw) in Mecca- Life with polytheists.'

Saturday 21 January at 7.00pm- Dinner followed by, at a little after 8.00pm,- 'The Prophet (saw) in Medina- Islam with the People of the Book.'

Please contact me for further information.

Alaykum salam,
Shk Muhammad Amin Evans "
