A magnificent work of reference

With 8 volumes published from 1985 to 1992, each numbering almost a thousand pages, the Encyclopædia of Seerah was a unique approach to the study of the Seerah of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

It is a wealth of knowledge for Muslims and Non-Muslims to learn about the last and final Messenger that God sent to mankind. The series covers 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. Learn about the greatest human being who ever lives in this extensive work.

This is the one and only 'Encyclopedia of Seerah' for children available consisting of photos, diagrams and illustrations on every page and is a great resource for young Muslims and new converts. This volume covers the Prophet Muhammad's biography and an analysis of his life including his lifestyle, his character and conduct towards people in all aspects of his life and his achievements making him a role model for all of humanity.
