Studying the life of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is the duty of every Muslim. We all believe in Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Together with believing in him, we also have to love him. Loving Nabi Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is part of our Imaan. One can certainly develop deep rooted love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam by reading his biography and learning about how he lived his noble life.
Among the many books of Seerah, Allah Ta’ala has blessed the book titled “Seeratul Mustafa” with great acceptance. This book was written by the great Muhaddith, Hadhrat Moulana Idrees Kaandhlawi (rahmatullahi alayh). May Allah Ta’ala reward the author abundantly and fill his grave with noor for having prepared such a masterpiece on the mubaarak life of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
There is a need for younger children to also study and learn the mubaarak life of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Although there are many books prepared on this topic, but reading it in the words of our Deeni elders has a different effect on the heart. Hence, an effort was made to further simplify this kitaab and bring it onto the level of a child.
The book in your hands titled “Seeratul Mujtaba” is a condensed version of the book “Seeratul Mustafa”. It is hoped that Muslim children will read about the life of our beloved Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and develop great love for him. May Allah Ta’ala bless us all with His love and the love of our beloved Nabi, Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
