Faith Fridays - The 40 Hadith by Imam al Nawawi by Ammar Al Shukry [VIDEO]

Salam everyone.

Have you ever wondered the effort it takes to memorise Qur'an or hadith and to quote it like it's at the tip of the tongue? There are techniques of course to memorisation but a lot of hard work goes into it.

Ever wonder how easy it is for us to remember the lyrics to our favourite song?

Ammar Al Shukry is a poet who uses poetry as a means to memorise and express his faith. In the video below he memorises Imam al-Nawawi's 40 hadith and condenses it into a poem, thereby making it easier for all of us to learn and memorise inshaAllah.

If you haven't heard any of his poetry before please check out his website, his Facebook page and his YouTube channel (and make sure you watch his poem on Jannah!). Ammar and Boona Mohammad also run a regular online open mic poetry contest called Lyrical Art where people from around the word submit poems and perform them in front of an audience that listens in (through Skype and audio streaming). You can find out more by joining Ammar's mailing list on his website.

For those of you who are interested Boona Mohammad will be in KL as part of Mercy Mission's Family Festival Conference that will be held at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre on the 24th and 25th of December. Find out more here.
