As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
No individual’s life has been recorded and preserved like the Sīrah and life of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. Every aspect of life, from his public life to private life, from his physical features to his sublime conduct, from his seriousness to his humor, from his life at home to his various travels and expeditions, from his period of health to sickness, from his childhood to adulthood has all been authentically recorded in voluminous books.
The more one reads the Sīrah of Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam, the heart fills with Nur (divine light) and guidance and increases in the love for Rasūlullāh Sallallāhu Alaihi Wa Sallam. The heart becomes desirous of following and adopting the lifestyle of the greatest man to set foot on the face of Earth.
