Undoubtedly, Muslims will gain profoundly from knowing the life events of their greatest and final prophet, Muhammad the son of ^Abdullah. Since Prophet Muhammad is our paragon, it makes sense that in order to follow his example that we know his sayings and actions.

Studying the Prophetic Lesson Sirah (Life of Prophet Muhammad ) is an important matter that the Companions and the following generations invested in learning and teaching. Imam Zaynul-^Abidin ^Aliyy Ibnul-Husayn said:

"كُنَّا نُعَلَّمُ مَغَازى النَّبِيّ صلَّى اللهُ عليه وسلَّمَ كمَا نُعَلَّمُ السُّورةَ مِنَ القُرءَان"

It means: “We were taught the battles of the Prophet as we were taught the chapter of the Qur'an.”

By looking at the Prophetic Sirah, Muslims learn the explanations of the Qur’anic verses and the circumstances of revealing those verses. They gain more understanding of the rulings that were deduced from the statements of the Prophet. The various inspirational aspects of the lives of the Prophet and his Companions are revealed. These are a few fruits of learning the Prophetic Sirah.
