This Book is the subject of a course by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani.
This course will mainly use Shaykh Muhammad Sa`id Ramadan al-Buti’s, Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography (whose title should have ideally been rendered into English as Lessons from the Life of the Prophet) to look into the Prophet’s life in detail. Shaykh Buti’s text is widely regarded as one of the best Prophetic biographies written in the 20th century and one of the most beneficial ever. Shaykh Buti goes beyond mere narration of the events of the Prophet’s life to look at the lessons and ‘religious understanding’ that can be gleamed from it.
This is an Ideal Book to Learn about
the nature, need, and purpose of revelation and prophethood
Arabia and the world before the birth of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him
the life of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, up to the beginning of revelation

migration and settling in Medina
establishing Medinan society
the Prophetic wars
the opening of Mecca and the final years
the Prophetic example
key lessons from the Prophet’s life

Abul-Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Ja`far ibn Hamdan al-Quduri al-Baghdadi, the Hanafi jurist, born 362 AH. Al-Quduri is an ascription to the selling of pots (qudur).
He took his knowledge of fiqh from Abu `Abdillah Muhammad ibn al-Jurjani, from Abu Bakral Jassas al-Razi, from Abul-Hasan al-Karkhi, from Abu Sa`id al-Barda`i from `Ali al-Daqqaq, from Abu Sahl Musa ibn Nasr al-Razi, from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani, from Abu Hanifah, from Hammad ibn Abi Sulayman, from Ibrahim al-Nakha`i, from `Alqamah, from `Abdullah ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and his Household and grant them all peace).
Al-Quduri was one of the ashab al-tarjih (jurists who weighed and analysed the strengths of differing verdicts in the madhhab). The leadership of the Hanafis in `Iraq came to rest with him, and his renown rose. His mention recurs in the well-known Hanafi books al-Hidayah and al-Khulasah. He died on 15 th Rajab 428 AH in Baghdad, and was buried in his home, but was later transported and buried beside Abu Bakr al-Khawarizmi, another Hanafi jurist.
The Book Of Remembrances [Kitab al-Adhkar] – By Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf an-Nawawi Kitab al-Adhkar is the definitive compilation of words of remembrance and glorification of (dhikr), and supplicatory prayer to (du’a), the Lord of the Universe, as related from His final Emissary, the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless and exalt him). Dhikr and du’a lie at the very heart of the din, the relationship between creature and Creator. As part of the Sunna or Prophetic Way, they are a divinely appointed means of approaching Allah Most High for all our needs, and of making use of all the moments of daily life to strengthen our tawhid, the existential and cognitive Unity that is the hallmark of Muslim spirituality. Also covered are the vital principles of speaking only what is good and avoiding the sins of the tongue.
