Life of The Last Prophet" by Yusuf
"The Life of the Prophet Muhammad": Al-Sira Al-Nabawiyya. They are great books of Islamic Civilization Series. Translated by Prof. Trevor Le Gassick. Reviewed by Dr Ahmed Fareed. Compiled in the Fourteenth century AD by a prominent Syrian scholar, al-Sira al-Nabawiyya by Ibn Kathir is a full examination, in chronological order, of the background, life and mission of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Drawn from the earliest and most reliable Arabic sources, it offers, in this English translation, the fullest available account of the historical circumstances and personalities most important in the founding of Islam.

"Stories of the Prophets" by Imam Ibn Kathir, translated by Sheikh Muhammad Mustafa Gemeiah. This classical work by the great scholar Ibn Kathir shares detailed information about the lives of the twenty-five Prophets mentioned by name in the Quran. Based on Islamic sources, the stories inclusively present whatever is known about these blessed individuals: the circumstances of their spreading the message, the nations where they lived, how they were treated, their unique trials and the results of their teaching. As one reads through the accounts, Allahs reasons for sending the Prophets are unveiled. The distinct style of writing makes it easy for both adults and children to understand and makes a valuable addition to a Muslim family library. It is available in either English or Arabic.
"Muhammad" by Martin Lings. This biography of Muhammad (pbuh), unlike others, is based on Arabic sources of the 8th and 9th centuries (of which some key passages are translated for the first time). It owes its freshness and directness of approach to the words of men and women who heard the Blessed Prophet speak and witnessed the events of his life. Nothing remotely comparable exists in English, or in any other European language.Really good book.
