It is very important for anyone who wants to spread the message of Islam to study the life of the Prophet (pbuh) and his methods of da'wah (calling to Islam). By studying his seerah (biography), we learn lessons of patience in the face of adversity and opposition and the readiness to sacrifice everything. The Prophet's approach was gentle, yet determined and clear-cut, with no compromise on basic issues.
Mustafa as-Siba'ie was a lecturer at the University of Damascus, where he taught seerah (the Prophet's Biography). In this book, he combines his knowledge of the seerah with his experience in the field. He summarizes the most important events of the seerah in order to offer a brief overview and then outlines the lessons to be learnt from these events. This is an excellent introduction to both the seerah and the principles of da'wah. It should be on the bookshelf of every Muslim who wants to call people to Allah the Almighty.
