Description :

''The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is the best role model for humankind as he represented the best human values in his nature. Discovering the different aspects of his life is indeed discovering the real value of humankind. This will also enlighten us as to why God chose humankind to be His vicegerent on earth. He explained the meaning of this universe and introduced our Creator with His names and attributes. If we know God in His true sense it is because of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Similarly, if we know how to be perfect and represent the universal values it is again through his exemplary life. The entire humanity is in great debt to him regarding learning the meaning of their life on earth and achieving happiness in this life and the Hereafter.

We tried to show Muhammad's, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, exemplary life so people can eradicate themselves of misconceptions and the Muslims can follow His way and represent Islam in the best form.

The books which cover the biography of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, usually give chronological information about his life; however, do not give insight into the exemplary characteristics. For example the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, as educator leader, the commander of an army, father, husband, ruler of state is absent from regular Sirah books. I came to the conclusion that it is beneficial to combine Sirah with the philosophy behind it, so have attempted to do so in this humble work.'' ---Dr. Recep Dogan.
