The Firsts | The Forerunners of Islam

There are forerunners in every age and circumstance. They rise to the occasion, and inspire a generation. They are the firsts that are chosen to lead the way for humanity. In this series, we will go through not only the famous firsts in Islamic history, but the firsts that are distinguished in the hereafter. Join Sh. Omar Suleiman weekly as he dives into the significance of these figures with emphasis on how they dealt with being the firsts of their kind, and how we can aspire to be like them.
