What does SEERAH mean?
In the Arabic language, the word “Seerah” comes from saara yaseeru. Linguistically, it means to travel or to be on a journey. When we’re talking about someone’s seerah we’re talking about that person’s journey through life. You are talking about the person’s birth, the events surrounding it, his life and his death, and you are also studying the manners and characteristics of that person.

In Islamic sciences, Seerah means the study of the life of the Prophet Muhammed (SAAW). It is the study of his life and all that is related to him. The information related to him would be like the events and aspects surrounding his biography. This would include knowledge of events that preceded his birth, his interactions, and dealings with his companions, his family, the people around him, and also the events that occurred shortly after his death
