The Prophet ﷺ said: “None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his child and all the people.” (Bukhari, 15; Muslim, 44). There has never been a human being so loved, well-respected and followed as Muhammad ﷺ, the final messenger of Allah. There has never been a person who has changed world history so dramatically as Muhammad ﷺ and his message. The Prophet ﷺ was the single most important person in the history of the world. A journey through the life of the best of creation, the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. A look at his life, his struggles, his victories and how Islam was established. Beyond a shadow of doubt, the biography of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ manifestly represents an exhaustive embodiment of the sublime Message that he communicated in order to deliver the human race from the swamp of darkness and polytheism to the paradise of light and monotheism. An image, authentic as well as comprehensive, of this Message is therefore only attainable through careful study and profound analysis of both backgrounds and issues of such a biography. OMC presents the first in a series of courses centering on the Seerah of our beloved Prophet ﷺ. This course is unique in that it follows very diligently the Seerah authenticated by the people of hadith, as Imam Ash-Shafi’ee said: “If I were to see a man from the people of hadith, it would be as if I have seen the Prophet (ﷺ) living.” [Sharaf As-haabil Hadeeth, 1/31]
