    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 Arab tribes. It gets interesting when it delves into Prophet SAW's birth & childhood. I particularly like Halimah's narration of Prophet Muhammad SAW during his childhood. Then, I read on, and I read. Amazingly I finished this at a much faster pace. The battles in the Islamic history during Prophet's lifetime were described in details. The description made me feel as if I'm standing within them, fighting their enemies! I particularly love the description of Uhud battle, particularly when there was one of the Companions mentioned that they'd never seen Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. wept as much as when he buried his uncle, Hamzah Abdul Mutalib r.a. and the descriptions of some of Prophet Muhammad SAW's companions such as Suhaib, who migrated to Madinah leaving all his possessions to the musyrikins, when they pestered him when he decided to leave Makkah and told Suhaib to repay their kindness, which the Prophet SAW told other Companions that "Suhaib is the real winner" I smiled when Rasulullah SAW smile. I cried when Rasulullah SAW cried, I cried when the Companions cried. I could actually feel their anguish and sorrow. And particularly when the Ansar were furious with the Prophet Muhammad SAW during Hunain, Prophet SAW comforted them and told them that if the Ansars went to another unfamiliar valley, he'll follow suit. Had there be no migration (hijrah), the Prophet Muhammad SAW sincerely believes that he'll be placed with the Ansar people. "But by Allâh, you might have answered and answered truly, for I would have testified to its truth myself: ‘You came to us belied and rejected and we accepted you; you came to us as helpless and we helped you; a fugitive, and we took you in; poor and we comforted you’. You Helpers, do you feel anxious for the things of this world, wherewith I have sought to incline these people unto the Faith in which you are already established? Are you not satisfied, O group of Helpers that the people go with ewes and camels while you go along with the Messenger of Allâh ([pbuh:]) to your dwellings. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, had there been no migration, I would have been one of the Helpers. If the people would go through a valley and passage, and the Helpers go through another valley and passage, I would go through the valley and passage of the Helpers. Allâh! Have mercy on the Helpers, their children and their children’s children." The Ansars actually wept hearing those words. The Prophet's death certainly was one of the saddest moment which is described in the book. Umar r.a. didn't believe that the Prophet SAW is dead until Abu Bakar r.a. read the following verse from the Qur'an to him & the audience, until everyone recited the verse till there was no one left who didn't recite the verse: "Muhammad is no more than an Apostle: many were the Apostles that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will you then turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah; but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude." I'm glad I read this book and I sincerely hope that others would read this book as well since the book can actually increase our knowledge regarding our Prophet's life, gave insights and appreciate our Prophet s.a.w. much much more Highly recommended!

    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.

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 discovery for me! One of my favourite parts of the Sirah is the treaty of Hudaibiya. It is a peace treaty between the prophet and his main enemy the tribe of Quraysh that had been living in Mecca. Despite the mistreatment, the insults, the killing that the prophet received from Quraysh, he was willing to make compromises and sign a treaty of peace with his enemy. On the other hand, the point of view of the author is missing in this book. Must of his interventions are "praising" comments or a confirmation of what the resources narrate. Basically, he based on Ibn Ishac's writings. As you may already know, Ibn Ishac wrote the first Sirah of the prophet. Furthermore, Ibn Ishac was heavily criticized by earlier Muslim scholars. Some of them (Imam Malik) even accused him of being a "outright liar". The veracity of some of his stories are questioned, for example the story of beheading of more than 700 Jews of Banu Qurayza. Some Muslim scholars claim that such tragedy have never happened. Surprisingly, the author didn't mention that. Is it in purpose or is it careless and unstudied citation of Ibn Ishac's works?

    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.

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 to cast an impression on the reader. The book contained many details which are generally absent in the other books of this type. Those details were not only necessary but only allowed glances into parts of the Prophets life that had been left untouched. Another vital aspect that this book had was the way lessons and rules were easily extracted and presented to the reader from the experiences and activities of Holy Prophet. The book charmed me and it definitely goes to my favourite. Without doubt a 5-star!

    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.

    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.

    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 Chills.

It tells the most life-altering story on Earth and I am so grateful I get to read it centuries later. It is very detailed, what with dates and the names of people and places, and though there was no possible way for me to remember all of it, the author's dedication left me speechless. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to be a fly on the wall and follow the journey of the most noble man (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) to ever walk this dunya.

    ‘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. The prophet (peace ‘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. The prophet (peace be upon him) was the perfect example of a human being for all of mankind. Many Famous and influential people including Gandhi also agree. This is the reason why there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world(2010): He was the most modest person and far from being arrogant or proud. Visiting the poor, the needy and entertaining them were some of his habits. Aishah (RA) his beloved wife said that he himself used to repair his shoes, sew or mend his clothes like ordinary men did in their house. Allah’s messenger was always cheerful, easy, pleasant tempered,truthful and merciful. He was never rude or rough or indecent. The Prophet PBUH died late in the morning on Monday, the twelth of rabiul awwal 11 AH. He was 63 years old. He died between his wife's chest and neck whilst leaning on her. 'He whose back I have ever lashed, I offer him my back so that he may avenge himself on me. He whose honour I have insulted, here I am offering my honour so that he may avenge himself.' I definetely recommed this book to everyone if you would like an unbiased, authentic view on the Prophet (PBUH). The only problem I had was the fact that I took so long in reading this, I actually started last year but I put it down. This 100% deserves a thorough re read from time to time. I also found the descrption of battles hard to read maybe it's because I was not always into it. Oh Allah make my character and personality like Prophet PBUH's.

    This is the most through, extensive, specific, comprehensive, and chronologically organized history of Islam & the life of the Prophet I've ever read. It really helps to put the Quran and Hadith collections in clear historical context. Truly immersing and enlightening.

    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 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 this biography despite having read Martin Lings'. I could not agree any less with Nouman Ali Khan about reading as many versions of his biography as possible. Every time it impacts you in a different way and adds wisdom that may not have been disclosed earlier. By the way, I got that feeling when I reached the part when during the last stage of his blessed life, he leads the prayers, after Jibril had revised the Quran with him twice that year. The importance of reading this biography is simply to allow ourselves to connect to the sunnah of the Holy Prophet. He was the best of human beings and it is his character, manners and values we should be trying to emulate for success in this world and the hereafter; success being the attainment of Allah's pleasure. Knowing is the first step towards doing. This book is highly recommended to enable you to become acquainted with the ways and wisdom of the Holy Prophet. I'm sure that like me, you will come across a lot of information that would surprise you of your lack of knowledge. Along the way a lot of misconceptions will be cleared and a lot of questions might also arise. Those questions will enable the perusal of further research in this area and inShaAllah lead towards greater wisdom and understanding. One thing that I analyzed after reading the Prophets inspirational struggles and strategies to spread Islam and his notion of Jihad was that our enemies have sadly adopted his ways while we have neglected them. (Though they have adopted them to spread corruption for material gain and self-dominance rather than the dominance of Allah's message which was the goal of the Prophet) It will be an insightful revelation for us and hopefully one that leads to self-improvement. We need to adopt the sunnah for the survival, safety and salvation of humanity. May Allah bless us all with the taufeeq to stay guided and mould our lives according to the pattern of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Aameen, was salaatu was salaamu alaika ya Rasulullah.

    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 That's definitely a big book, almost 600 pages.

    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.

    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.)
