This is among few books which leave an impact to me. I encountered this while performing Hajj - mine was an old edition, with black cover, no adornments on the cover, just gold lettering on black cover. It costs me SR 30. My friend, Nusayba recommended this book through her blog years back.

This book gives a detailed overview with regards to the Prophet Muhammad SAW's life from his birth to death. I was sceptical at first, since the book started off explaining the lineage of Muhammad SAW and the

The book is a narrative writing of the Sirah (biography) of the prophet Mohamed, peace be upon him. The author compiled different Islamic resources to write his book of Sirah. His references are mainly Ibn Ishac, Ibn Hisham, Al-Tabari, Muslim and Bukhari. The book is well organized and the different periods of the prophet's life are clearly presented. Moreover, I learnt many new facts about the life of the prophet Mohamed. For instance, several details of ghazwat Uhud (battle of Uhud) were a dis ...more

I was told that this was the most authentic biography on the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH). I started reading it and in these past 2-3 years I must have read this book at least a dozen times. It is such an enlightening read. The way of writing and describing events clearly refrains from extra dramatic effects addition or any thing that might corrupt the original essence of the Prophets pure life. The events are narrated with extreme simplicity yet in an authentic tone that definitely doesnt fail t ...more

it was an awesome and enlightening read. i am glad i got the chance to read it now as i watched the mbc umar series last year. it helped me picture some of the sahaba as i read on. (however unreal the characters but how very real the story). i was moved to different emotions from laughter to near tears. i got insight into the lifes of some sahaba that i did not really know. i did find the names a bit too much to remember and the battles overwhelmingly detailed. overall a great read.
Isha Ali
Must read biography of the prophet Muhammad (SAW). It was a very easy read. It starts with the history of the Arab tribes and may seem a bit tedious, but the main body of the book once it gets started is very interesting. I especially loved the parts about the wars. Definitely recommend.

Chills. Tears. Joy and sorrow. This book shook me to the core as I found myself crying randomly in awe of the love the sahaba clearly felt for Muhammad, sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam, and the pride they felt in being Muslim. It literally seeped off the pages of this book and pierced my soul through my eyes. It's one thing to read the ahadith sporadically and out of order, but this book captures all the information in such a flowing way that you don't really get the time to recover from one hadith ...more

‘And verily, you (O Muhammad) are on an exalted standard of character.’ – Quran (68:4)

Ramadan day 27: I finished this today, I have to say this is probably the most impacting book I have read on the biography of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

I want to share some information with you from this book because right now the media is not doing a very good job about portraying Islam how it actually is. Okay, let’s not get into that before I pour my feelings in that matter.

An epic and privilag read.
The 1st prize winner book in a worldwide competition on " Seerat Un Nabi" which truly encompasses the power to fill our hearts with love for the last prophet.
An excellent articulation and narration of blessed life of ( PBUH), which offers deep insight into Prophet's life. Every single sentence carries along volumes of guidilines for Umma to follow.
Though the book contains many least known aspects, however in totality, a refresher manual to reinvigorate our passionate l

A beautiful story of a most beautiful person. The writer creates a most vivid scenery of the pre-Islamic era and takes the reader through the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) life and struggles. Arguably one of the best books to learn about the greatest personality in human history. My only suggestion is to read it slowly, don’t rush.

For the first time in my life I was overwhelmed with the thought of how wonderful it would have been for the blessed people of that time to stand behind in prayer with the best of Imams and listen to his voice, (HIS VOICE!) reciting Allah's words. To be standing behind him in prayer is the most beautiful connection I can ever imagine! SubhanAllah. I can yearn for it until it breaks my heart. There are so many lessons to be learnt from the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH. I am glad I read ...more

That's definitely a big book, almost 600 pages. I heard lots of praise for it, and failing to find it in Arabic here in USA, I read the English translation (I'ts not clear if it's originally written in Arabic or Urdu). However I don't think it will be anywhere near the top of my favorite biographies of the Prophet. I think some of the stories mentioned are very poorly selected, if you pay attention to details. I think it will appeal more to a believing Muslim who will not question anything. I'm ...more

This book mainly focuses on the military activities of the Prophet (SAW), its an interesting read. My favourite bits were to do with the mentions of Satan, Angels, the stories of people who accepted Islam, the miracles that occurred, the Prophet (SAW) marriages and details related to his (SAW) family life which were interspersed within the book.
Mina
An excellent book on the prophetic life of Muhammad (pbuh) with a fair balance between narrative and factual voice. Enjoyable to read.
A good starting point for a new(er) reader to the life and times of early Islam, with a focus on the most important battles. (4 stars from me because it was a little vague for what I needed.)

Wallahi i can honestly say that the biography of the prophet Muhammed (SAW) has made me fall in love with him. He truly is the greatest man who has ever lived. Safiur-Rahman Al-mubarak done an amazing job narrating the life of the prophet Muhammed (SAW)and highlighting the different stages of his life.

Best sera ever hands down

This book took me a while to read since like all historical books just full of facts, facts, and facts, I would struggle to read much at a time.

However, I really enjoyed this book! It's full of knowledge that every Muslim should know. Very awesome!

One of the best book on the Life of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Highly Recommended read for those who want to know more about the Life of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

I've been recommended this as the best Seerah and I'll recommend this to you as same.

Sound Narrations and you must also this Seerah has been awarded to be the number one worldwide back in 1940s. Surely it's a number one Seerah.

This is a great read about Muhammad (saw). The book needs content editing because some incidents probably narrated from ibn Ishaq are questionable. The book contradicts itself in rare instances.

“لا تبحث أبدًا عن أحد ما تقرأ سيرته وأنت لم تطّلع على السيرة النبويّة , أتعلم لماذا ؟
لأن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- جمع الخلال العذبة والأخلاق الفاضلة والشمائل الكريمة ؛ فكان أفضل القوم مروءة وأحسنهم خلقًا وأعزهم جوارًا وأعظمهم حلمًا وأصدقهم حديثًا وألينهم عرِيكة وأعفهم نفسًا وأكرمهم خيرًا وأبرهم عملًا وأوفاهم عهدًا وآمنهم أمانة .
أتبحث عن غيره وسيرته جامعة لكل ما تحب النفس ؟”
