A magnificent work of reference

A magnificent work of reference

With 8 volumes, published from 1985 to 1992, the Encyclopædia of Seerah was a unique approach to the study of the Seerah of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), with emphasis on the lifestyle of the Prophet. Covering all aspects of his life, as a messenger, and educator, a military leader, a ruler, a statesman, and above all as a man.

In the course of following Muhammad's (peace be upon him) life in these various roles, we gain a valuable insight into many aspects of Islamic society.

My community is commanded to take my words and obey my commands and follow my sunnah. - Muhammad ﷺ

Encyclopedia of Seerah for Children

Encyclopedia of Seerah for Children

In 1994 the Seerah Foundation published the first volume of the Encyclopedia of Seerah for children. With photos, diagrams and illustrations on every page, it is a great resource for young Muslims. It can be purchased here from the online book shop of our partners at The Islamic Foundation.
Contact us for purchasing orders in bulk.

Manuscripts for a further 4 volumes of the Childrens Encyclopedia (Volumes 2-5) that were written by Afzalur Rahman have been found. Interest has been expressed by the public regarding more volumes in this series, so it is our hope in sha Allah to one day publish these volumes as well.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again;
and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly.
Muhammad ﷺ
