AUTHOR: Dr. Mustafa as-Sibaaie
It is very important for anyone who wants to spread the message of Islam to study the life of the Prophet صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم and discover how he undertook the mission of da‘wah, or calling to Islam. This book is a blueprint for da‘wah. From studying his biography we learn the lessons of patience and perseverance in the face of adversity and opposition, and the readiness to sacrifice everything for the cause of Islam. In this book, Dr. as-Sibâ‘ie shows us how the Prophet’s صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم approach was gentle yet determined and clear-cut, with no compromise on basic issues. The author takes the most important events of the Messenger’s صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم life, summarizes them in order to offer a brief overview, then outlines the lessons that we learn from these events. This is an excellent introduction both to the principles of da‘wah and to the seerah, the study of the life of the Prophet صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم. It should be on the bookshelf of every Muslim who wants to call others to Allah. The Life of Prophet Muhammad: Highlights and Lessons have been translated into English by Nasiruddin al-Khattab.
