Seeking the Prophet (s) When we think of poetry that is written for the glorification of God or in remembrance of the Prophet Muhammad(s) we might be inclined to reflect on the works of Mir Dard, Iqbal, Maulana Jalal ud Din Rumi or Ibn Arabi. But I was recently moved by a poem recited by Sukina Abdul Noor, one half of the spoken word duo called Poetic Pilgrimage, entitled 'Seeking the Prophet'. It was a heart rending recitation that highlighted an individual search in modern times for a man who continues to influence millions of lives today. . .
Women's Liberation Through Islam Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the women's liberation movement began in the 20th century. Actually, the women's liberation movement was not begun by women but was revealed by God to a man in the seventh century by the name of Muhammad (peace be upon him), who is known as the last Prophet of Islam. The Qur'an, the Traditions of the Prophet (Hadith or Sunnah), Bibi Fatimah (as) and the teachings of the 12 Imams are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties . . .

The book starts with a look at the pre-Islamic world order. It deals with not only the events that occurred during the life of the Prophet, but also the philosophy and thinking behind the Prophet's actions. This is a great book to read for those interested in an introductory guide to the life of the Prophet.
This book not only presents an inspiring material but it is also based on authentic historical documents. One of its salient features is that the author has taken extreme care in narrating historical events and at the same time he has endeavoured as a research scholar, to approach them with an analytic mind also. Another interesting feature of this book is that it is absolutely free from heresies and concocted stories invented by vested interests. This book gives full details of the entire life of the Holy Prophet of Islam.
The Life Of Muhammad The Prophet
Author: S. Saeed Akhtar Rizvi
This book was first published in 1971 as part of the Islamic Correspondence Course run by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania. The idea behind writing this book was to satisfy the needs of our new generation - the youths and students, as well as recent converts, who are unable to study the scholastic books written by the Muslim scholars and whose only source of information seems to be the biased writings of orientalists presented as "objective" and "authentic" studies.
