Life of Muhammad(saw) – Introduction to the Seerah, “the Sources” Lectures L101 – L103

Fiqh us Seerah Part 1

The life of the Prophet Muhammad (s) is a road map for travellers on the path of life. The Prophet Muhammad (s) was a mercy to all living things and a Warner of perilous times to come. Today, Muslims, more than any other people, are in need of a guide to the practical application of Islamic traditions.

This set of lectures is the first of a series intended to bring to the student of Islamic knowledge and the average listener the life of the Last Prophet Muhammad (s). Taped in an atmosphere of social unrest and Islamic revival, these presentations are a must for those who are trying to apply the wisdom of the Prophetic message (Fiqh-us-Seerah) to the 21st Century. The lecturer has travelled and researched in over 54 countries, qualified in Islamic Sciences at the Islamic University of Madinah, Saudi Arabia and received an M.A. and Ph.D. from the History Department of the University of Toronto, Canada.

This particular chapter introduces us to the study of Seerah, it’s sources and the scholars responsible for compiling the many reports on the life of The Prophet Muhammad (s) still available to us.

Still to come in Part1 of Fiqh-us-Seerah:

3. Highlights from the History of Arabia.
4. The Lineage and Birth of the Prophet Muhammad (s).
5. The Early Years.
6. Young Adulthood to Marriage.
7. Marriage to Prophethood.
8. The First to Believe.
