Publisher: The Simple Seerah
Appropriately titled as “The Simple Seerah”, one of the main objectives of this book is to make it easy for the young generation of Muslims today to understand and learn from the life of the Prophet . The novel-like language and storytelling structure used throughout the book is easy and engaging for most youngsters and even adults. Combined with the brilliant illustrations, you’re transported to ancient Makkah to witness the trials and challenges of the early Muslims. – Mufti Menk
This is part two in the revolutionary series The Simple Seerah!
After struggling through the challenges of Prophethood in par one, and narrowly surviving an assassination attempt by the Quraysh, the Prophet is left with no choice but to leave his hometown; the place he was born, raised and loved. Together with his best friend Abu Bakr, he migrates northwards in search of a new home.
Now begins a new chapter in Prophet Muhammad’s life: building a new community. A community based on the principles of fairness, justice, kindness, and worshiping the One true God alone. Though warmly received by many in the city, there are pockets of people who don’t want him there and will try to undermine him at every step. And then there remains the issue of the Quraysh who only have the one thing on their mind: revenge.
For the best reading experience, we recommend reading Part One of The Simple Seerah before starting this book.
The Simple Seerah is authored by Ustadh Asim Khan. He has spent much of his life studying Tafsir and Islamic sciences with an aim to help the younger generation connect more with the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).
As well as The Simple Seerah, he has published books of Tafsir focusing on Surah Yasin and Surah Mulk. Ustadh Asim Khan also regularly delivers transformative Islamic seminars and courses related to Islamic sciences, Tafsir, and history.
The Simple Seerah is produced by Toyris Miah. The idea for The Simple Seerah came about when Toyris discovered his 11-year-old nephew Zakaria had a passion for reading history books. He tried to find some Islamic history books for Zakaria but struggled to find anything which catered to his age group, this sparked a desire to produce a book on the Seerah that appealed to a younger demographic.
When Toyris first thought up The Simple Seerah, there were hardly any Islamic books available that catered to teenagers as well as young adults, who wanted an easy-to-read Islamic book, which wasn’t full of academic literature.
