Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,
This application brings you the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in English high quality audio. Beautiful narration of the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
The seerah Of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in English by Imam Anwar Al Awlaki. Imam Anwar al-Awlaki was born in New Mexico USA. His parents are from Yemen where he lived for eleven years and received his early Islamic education. Imam al Awlaki has served as Imam in Colorado, California and washington DC. Currently he resides in Yemen.
The term ‘Seerah' has a linguistic meaning and that is 'path'. But seerah generally means biography of any person. So, Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) or al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah means biography (life) of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Learning about Seerah does not mean just reading a book, it involves contemplating, pondering, reflecting, and deriving lessons from it and applying those lessons in our lives. It requires developing a spiritual relationship and a bonding with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Many people think that Seerah and Sunnah are the same, but that’s not true. Sunnah is technical and it involves only excerpts from Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) life. It consist of narrations from his life and includes what he said, did and approved of.
Seerah, on the other hand, is the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in its entirety. It includes not only his life after Prophethood, but also life before Prophethood. In fact, some scholars also discuss the conditions in Mecca before his birth, to help us truly understand the circumstances in which he was born and the difficulties he faced later in his life, in order to fully appreciate his life.
Thus, let us all take an initiative and make a sincere attempt to learn about the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Let us not just limit ourselves to Sunnah for interacting with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s life, but also take a closer look at the Seerah. Seerah, Sunnah and Hadith should go side by side. We cannot comprehend one without the other two.
Allah (SWT) tells us in the Quran that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the best role model to follow. So, to follow in his footsteps, we need to learn more about his life. In Surah al-Ahzab, The Quran 33:21, Allah (SWT) says: “There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and (who) remembers Allah often.”
The life of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) is the history of Islam. If we want to learn to learn about Anbiya (prophets) we go to the Quran but if we want to learn about the life of prophet muhammad (s.a.w) we go to the seerah.
We must study the seerah to develop a proper love of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in our hearts. Loving Muhammad (s.a.w) is Ibadah. We don't truly becomes believers until we love rasulullah more than we love ourselves.
The Ummah today love rasulullah (s.a.w). If you asked any Muslim do you love prophet Muhammad (pbuh) they will say yes. But the love can not be very deep and sincere unless you know the person. If you have shallow information about someone you can't really love them. To love a person you need to know them more and this is especially true for prophet muhammad (pbuh) because the more you know him the more you will be impressed with his personality, the more you will love him.
So even though muhammad (s.a.w) among the Ummah today with the shallow information that the masses of the Muslims have about him even though they still love him but we can not truly have deep love to Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam unless we know him.
