About The Book
The Prophet’s biography occupies great status in the hearts of Muslims, since Muhammad (SAW) is our guide and a Mercy to Mankind.
Ibn Hisham says that he edited this biography and omitted certain details that were deemed too offensive to Muslims, he removed tales of people before the Prophet Ismail (AS) and tales of his sons and also a lot of probably unverifiable information (specially Poetry) from Ibn Ishaq’s work.
The English Translation is further Summarised by removing the repetitions and chains of narrations so as to make it simpler for the English reader.
