The life history of prophet MuhammadApr 08
The life history of prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is something all Muslims need to study whether you are a male or female, adult or child, scholar or commoner, businessman or laborer.
In fact, the fulfillment of many of our Islamic duties hinges upon our knowledge of the life history of prophet Muhammad. For example, everyone should love the Prophet; yet how can one love him without knowing him.
We were not alive when the Prophet was preaching the message of Islam to the Quraish, so the only way we are left with is to become intimately acquainted with the Prophet PBUH.
To love him, requires you to follow him, by studying his sayings and deeds, which give us partial glimpses of his life, or to study the life history of prophet Muhammad, which fits the pieces of his life together, so that we can have an overall view of his ideal character.
And how are we to follow the Prophet if we do not know his sayings and deeds, or which is more relevant to his biography - the context in which his sayings and deeds occurred.
Thus we are all in dire need of acquainting ourselves with the the life history of prophet Muhammad.
