---The Remembrance of Death, [Book 40].

:  The lectures are given in a mountain cabin in the remote and beautiful Bifröst region of Iceland. Cutaway footage shows the audience trekking through the area's scenic landscapes, including the Sólheimajökull Glacier, Laxnes, and Mount Esja. On the glacier, ash deposits are a reminder of the recent eruptions of neighbouring volcanos.

Bifröst is a small settlement in western Iceland, in the Mýrasýsla county. It is located in the Northwest Political constituency and is the site of Bifröst University, a small private campus university. Bifröst is surrounded by a 3,000-year-old lava field, Grábrókarhraun, which has been overgrown with moss and heather. Just behind the university campus there is an old volcano called Grábrók and another mountain called Grábrókarfell.

Speaker :  Sidi Idris Watts is a British scholar and teacher. After graduating with First class honours in Arabic from Leeds University, he spent four years in Fez, Morocco, attending classes at the Qarawiyyin University and studying under some of the city's great scholars, focusing on tajwid, grammar, and Maliki fiqh. In 2007, he returned to England, where he is now Resident Scholar at the 'Abu Zahra Foundation' in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

ContentsSingle Disc DVD Lecture Summary :-

---40: The Remembrance of Death (Dhikr al-Mawt wa-ma ba’dahu). This DVD recording presents the climax of the Imam's great work. We are only fully alive when we are aware of the reality and inevitability of death. We also need to know about the soul's life in the grave, and about what follows it: the Resurrection, Heaven, Hell, and the Vision of the Almighty. These realities are presented here in vivid language to enable us to live directed and purposeful lives focused on our Journey to our Lord.

The lectures are accompanied by footage of the remarkable natural beauty of the region, and devotional singing which sets Islamic poetry to traditional Icelandic music - a unique set of nasheeds not to be found elsewhere!
