3D models highlighting places and events of significance during the era of Prophet Muhammad (s) are now on display in a new, temporary exhibition at the Islamic Museum of Australia.

Saudi-based traveling exhibition The Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (s) opens for the first time in Australia and offers visual context to some of the stories many Muslims have grown up with.

Islamic Museum of Australia founder and Chairperson, Moustafa Fahour OAM said the Museum is pleased to have an opportunity to share these important stories with the Muslim community.

“Prophet Muhammad (s), is known in the Qur’an as a mercy to mankind because he was enveloped in mercy – sheltering children, holding women in high regard, and serving those in need.”

“Not only does this exhibition highlight important events in the Prophet’s life but demonstrates how he exemplified the best in humankind,” said Mr Fahour.

The Museum has scheduled programs to complement the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (s) exhibition including public lectures and children’s craft. The two lectures, to be delivered by Sheikh Alaa of Heidelberg Mosque will focus on the qualities of the Prophet Muhammad (s) and dealing with hardship the Prophetic way.

The Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (s) is open until 6 March 2020. Visit the IMA’s website for more details or to book your place at the related programs.

The Islamic Museum of Australia is located in Thornbury, in Melbourne’s north. It is the only Islamic museum in the country and provides educational and cross-cultural experiences for all ages.

The Museum is open 10am – 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
