There are numerous reasons why every Muslim must study the Seerah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and his Companions (Sahabah). We will limit the number of reasons to just ten, and we'll state some as follows:
1. Allah made it mandatory upon every Muslim to love their Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم more than their love for anything and anyone. Anas ◙ narrated that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children, and all mankind." The imperative love here is the type that scholars named "the obtainable love." It is the type that a Muslim must work on obtaining, not the innate (inherited) kind of love. And for a Muslim to gain the acquired love, he must study the Seerah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. Amazingly, his wives and Companions (Sahabah)
passed on the smallest details of the Prophet's صلى الله عليه وسلم life that Scholars (Ulama) authenticated and compiled to serve as a
guide for many generations to come. It‘s a unique feature that Allah did not grant any messenger before him – we know of his day-to-day affairs. 2. The full understanding of the Seerah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم will provide us with the necessary factual evidence that will enable us to uphold our Prophet's صلى الله عليه وسلم honor. Often, bigots of Islam direct their hateful slanders and allegations against our Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. These false allegations are usually based on groundless and unrealistic conclusions. They often judge the practices and the norms of the community in which the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم lived based on their modern-day standards.
3. Understanding the Seerah is essential to understand and explain the Quran. The Quran is a unique contextual script that Allah revealed over twenty-three years. Thus, no one can fully and correctly interpret the Quran in the absence of a well-defined context that can be supported with events from the Seerah. Knowledge of the Seerah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم also determines the limits we cannot cross when we explain the Quran.4. The life of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم is irrefutable proof of his Prophethood. The experience of our beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is unprecedented – his birth, the environment of his upbringing, his character, his eloquence. Above all,
his everlasting impact can only be attributed to that of a Messenger of Allah. Allah said while addressing the Disbelievers (Kafirun) who lived with him, and were fully aware of the Prophet‘s صلى الله عليه وسلم Seerah,
