The Islamic tradition teaches us that this life is only one of our lives. Rather every human being passes through five stages in their existence; five lives! In comparison to the five lives, the earthly life is actually very short, so what are the other four? 

Is not worth learning where you and all your loved ones are heading? Is it not important to know where you may or may not end up for the rest of eternity? Would you not like to know what happened to you before you came into this world, and what happens next in your journey?

Learn about the journey of the human; learn about YOUR journey, where you came from and where you are going. Join us as we cover the questions which human beings are seeking answers to, by examining each phase of the human journey from before conception, the life in this world, the life in the grave, the Resurrection, and our final eternal abode.
