Man needs a perfect and universal exemplar who could place in his hands a guide-book of practical life, so that every wayfarer may reach his destination safely. And this exemplar did come to the world in the person of the last of the Prophets, Muhammad, on whom be peace and blessing of the Lord.
This book took shape from a series of lectures given by the author in 1925 at Madras, India. In these lectures the author vividly presents the life of the Prophet as an abiding historical model – not an utopian ideal – for all humanity. This book is a must for every student of religion.
Saiyid Sulaiman Nadwi, the author, was the illustrious student of Allama Shibli Nu’mani whose masterpiece, Sirat-Un-Nabi, he edited and presented to the world after his teacher’s death.
