I Relay: 22 April 2021

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

I am not very sure if the Ka’abah was an ancient temple built to worship God. That sentence somehow doesn’t sit right with me but unfortunately my knowledge on the Ka’abah is shallow. I will need to look it up and figure out what exactly was Abraham instructed to built: a place of worship or just a marker to indicate the direction for prayer.

Otherwise, the content of this video was very well done. It really surmises the history of Islam succinctly and chronologically. I also like the explanations on why there are no images of Muhammad and Allah at the end.

The one thing I realised from the video is actually the concept of having a best friend. It has been about a decade since I read anything about Islamic history. So when the video mentioned Muhammad’s best friend, Abu Bakr, and how they evaded enemies together, it made me realised that even a prophet needs a best friend to help him through tough times. That realisation jolts me because I have never thought about that back when I was studying Islam.

And Allah is Ar-Rahman, The Most Gracious. – MM
