Shama’il Muhammadiyyah

Our history starts with the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). A person should seek knowledge of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) since it is one of the things which he will be asked about when he is buried in his grave, and this knowledge is achieved by studying his (صلى الله عليه وسلم) life history. Studying the life of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was a habit of the pious predecessors to such an extent that they used to teach their children the Seerah just as they used to teach them the other vital sciences such as Fiqh and Qur’aan. So whoever wishes to increase his eemaan then he should study what he can about his (صلى الله عليه وسلم) life. As a result of studying his (صلى الله عليه وسلم) life one will know the path to success and the method to how Islaam will rise again. It is important to study the early history of Islaam because it exemplifies the correct implementation of the Islamic teachings. Studying the Seerah is studying a miracle. Ibn Hazm said, “Studying the magnificent seerah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) necessitates belief in him – that he was a messenger of Allaah. If he (صلى الله عليه وسلم) had no other miracle save his seerah, then that surely would suffice.”

This course is based on the reletively brief ‘Mukhtasar Sirah An Nabi’ (Abridged Biography of the Prophet) by Hafidh Abdul Ghani Al Maqdisi, which is unlike most books of biography of the Prophet, concentrating on Shama’il (characteristics) and the interactions of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.
