The Life of the Prophet Muḥammad: A Translation of Al-Sīra Al-Nabawiyya, Volume 3
Center for Muslim Contribution to Civilization, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 532 pages
Compiled in the fourteenth century AD by an eminent Syrian scholar, the al-Sira al-Nabawiyya by Ibn Kathir is a full examination, in chronological order, of the background, life and mission of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Drawn from the earliest and most reliable Arabic sources, it offers, in this English translation, the fullest available account of the most significant historical circumstances and personalities in the founding of Islam. Ibn Kathir's work is a fine example of Islamic scholarship; the quotations and anecdotes that constitute its core are evaluated in terms of the trustworthiness of their sources. The various versions related through differing lines of transmission are noted, and Ibn Kathir gives both his own assessments and those of the earliest Islamic authorities concerning the likely authenticity of these records. The comments and conversations, derived from ancient texts, that are quoted in this work constitute the basis of our knowledge of Islam during the lifetime of its founder.
