This book is one of the important resources of knowledge for those who seek to know the Seerah of their Prophet PBUH as well as, the Fiqh learned from it. This is a book that is unique in that it explains the Sunnah through the Seerah and the Seerah through the Sunnah. It is a profound classic work containing thousands of pages written by Imam ibn al-Qayyim while on the hajj journey, Pilgrimage, from Damascus to Makkah. Despite its being written from memory, the several thousand incidents, hadiths, ayah, fiqh benefits, as well as, names of the companions associated with them, were remarkably close to the truth, with marginal errors.

I'm happy that people want to learn -- even though I think meeting Muslims is far more valuable than reading about them -- but searching the sea of available choices can be difficult and dangerous. For instance, search for "Muslim" or "Islam" on Amazon , and the array of books that pop up is worrying.
