Our noble prophet's every impression and step, every word and style, and all his actions are ideal for us to follow.

The Quran says: "You have in the Messenger of Allah the most beautiful pattern of conduct."33:21It's so unfortunate that in spite of having passionate love for Mohammad s.a.w.

Muslims are unaware of his beautiful personality and Seerah. A clear understanding of his Seerah is the only route to success.
