In this lecture in the Seerah of the Prophet ﷺ, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi attempts to unravel the actual meaning of Seerah and what is its significance. We are also acquainted with the innumerable benefits of the Seerah or why we should study the Seerah.
Firstly, Allah has commanded us to know the Prophet ﷺ and hence, primarily the one way to increase the love for the Prophet ﷺ and to demonstrate our love for him can only be made possible with the detailed understanding of the Seerah. Without it, we cannot also attempt to appreciate the Qur’an and follow the Noble Book in all earnestness ever. We can always defend the Prophet ﷺ by studying the Seerah.
Where does one study the Seerah from? What are the sources of Seerah? The number one source of the Seerah is inevitably the Noble Qur’an, the second is hadith and third has got be from the chain of narrators (isnad) – Ibn Ishaq and Ibn Hisham.
Pre-Islamic Arabia is the next subtopic in this amazing lecture on which light is shed upon and explicit details have been provided to have a clear indication of the genealogy (for instance, the types of Arabs) and it is advised to listen intently and be educated immensely.
