Seerah App: A new way to read the life of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

FEATURED | October 17th, 2022

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the most important person we should know more about in our history. His life's story is filled with moments of triumph and moments of tragedy. The Seerah is a comprehensive collection of narratives about the life, virtues, and teachings of our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Muslims need to know about his life and teachings to understand who he was and what he taught. The Seerah also helps Muslims understand how to behave towards others and why they should worship Allah.

Why is it important to study the Seerah?

When we study the Seerah, we study the life of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. We learn about his character and his example. We also learn about the lessons that he taught us. By studying the Seerah, we develop a strong Muslim identity.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ taught us about Allah and how to worship Him. He taught us to be good to our parents, neighbors, and friends. He taught us to be honest and always speak the truth. These are just some of the lessons that we learn from the Seerah.

Learn about Islam's history by studying the Seerah! The Prophet's life is more than a biography; it is the history of Islam, your Deen. His Seerah contains situations that will assist you in learning everything you need to know in your daily life. We were taught the Seerah of Rasoolullah like we were taught a surah from the Qur'an, said Ali bin Hussain ibn Ali bin Abi Talib.

Study the Seerah to get love in your heart, not just your lips. Loving the prophet is an act of Ibadah-worship and everything you do to cultivate this love will be a source of reward for you! The more you get to know him, the more you'll be impressed by his personality, and the more you'll love him. In the Qur'an, Allah 'azza wa jal commanded us to follow the example of a person with such an inspiring character: "Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much." [Quran, 33:21]

To understand the Qur'an, study the Seerah. We could not understand Allah's Book unless we had complete knowledge of the Seerah. The Ayaat (verses) in the Qur'an about the Akhirah is independent of the circumstances. However, some Ayaat deal with events during the prophet's time; to fully comprehend the meanings of these Ayaat, the Seerah is required. Furthermore, certain Qur'anic commands are applied in the Prophet's life for us to learn how to practice them, such as how to perform wudu in detail!

To better worship Allah, learn the Seerah. You're not doing this to amuse yourself. There is 'ajr (reward) in doing so. By studying the life of Allah's prophet ﷺ, you are worshipping Allah. Allah 'azza wa jal says: “Say, “If you love Allah then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins: for Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”” [Quran, 3:31]

To form a Muslim identity, study the Seerah. According to a well-known Russian historian, to destroy a people, its roots must be severed. That is exactly what is happening to us. We're going through a serious identity crisis. We practice Islam by praying, fasting, and so on, but our true identity is frequently lost. How else can we explain why most of our children have more in common with a television personality or a famous athlete than with the prophet's companions?

How can we study the Seerah?

There are many ways in which we can study the Seerah. We can read books or listen to lectures about the Seerah. We can also use apps to learn about his life. With the rise of technology, apps are one of the most popular ways to access information, especially on your phone. However, with the current state of the apps related to Seerah, they have focused primarily on providing a book-reading experience. What existing products fail to address is making it easy to learn wisdom & rulings from the events along with interactiveness and utilization of modern features such as Bookmark, Notes, Maps, Quiz, Stats, etc.

Our Seerah app is an interactive app that allows readers to experience the Prophet’s ﷺ life in a way that is not possible through traditional books. We want to provide a variety of features that will make learning and contextualizing the life of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in an engaging way possible. The app will allow the user to study each period of the life of the Prophet ﷺ in a way that will be challenging, interactive, and engaging. It will also address the gaps mentioned by providing a study tool focusing on learning, interactivity, and interconnecting with our other apps.

Here are the features you get:
