The Simple Seerah: The Story Of Prophet Muhammad - Part One: 1
About this deal
This book is a beautiful introduction to the life of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), it was perfect for me to read not long after I accepted Islam, Alhamdullilah, to learn about the Prophet (SAW). It is written in a way that is easy to understand for the younger generation as well as adults, Muslims and non-Muslims. While Seerah Of Prophet Muhammad is a collection of tales concerning specific incidents in the prophet’s life.
The Prophet Muhammad is said to have walked with his head down and his eyes fixed on the ground rather than the sky. He is reported to have walked with great strides and a faint somber aura, lowering his head as though descending from above. The Arabic word ‘Seerah’ is the term used by many Muslims around the world when referring to the life of the last and final messenger of God, Muhammad (peace be upon him.) He lived an incredible life, filled with challenges and adventures, battles, miracles and so much more! One of the easy reading , captivating and engrossing seerah books I have ever read. I mean would have loved it as a teenager, the audience it is actually aimed at. Nevertheless find it beautiful even as an adult! It's the book that you should definitely include in your seerah collection.
I was excited to be one of the volunteers reading advanced copies of this book before it was released, before having the opportunity to discuss themes and the structure of the book with Ustadh Asim Khan.
Ustadh Asim Khan is the author of The Simple Seerah series which has revolutionised how we teach the Seerah to todays audience. He is a Hafiz of Qur’an & an Imam for the Redbridge Islamic Centre. He is also a course instructor for the Sabeel institute, a published author of 4 books covering Tafsir and Seerah, and a social media campaigner for good causes. Ustadh Asim Khan also presents regular Islamic shows on satellite channels. We will also have a special reading from the brand new book The Simple Seerah – Part Two as well as the opportunity for a Q&A session and to have your book signed by the author! The Holy Prophet continues to be a model of piety, love, devotion, and strength for all mankind, not just Muslims. His life, although being chronicled, is one of the most interesting and debated lives on the planet.
I will not give up five habits as long as I live: To eat sitting on the ground with slaves, to ride on a pony without a saddle, to a milch goat with my own hands, to wear coarse woolen cloths, and to greet children, so that it may become a popular habit after me and people follow suit”. We come to the Seerah to learn about Islam and our Last Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH). To Better Understand the Quran Personally, I'm glad to see that the creative storytelling style is becoming popularized - up until now, it was often severely frowned upon as taking too many liberties with the seerah. I hope we see more like this from Muslim authors & publishers inshaAllah!
