A Note from the Publisher
After the valuable presentation, Atlas of the Qur'an, as promised, Darussalam is presenting Atlas on the Prophet's Biography.
This Atlas is also a compilation of the distinguished research scholar Dr. Shawqi Abu Khalil. The book is in Arabic language and published by Dar-Al-Fikr, Damascus. Dr. Shawqi completed this Book also after the careful study and research this great work required.
In this Atlas, the Seerah has been given in a brief form, and maps, explanatory diagrams and photographs have been added to show the places and directions of various events that took place in the life of the Prophet ? (S). The maps and illustrations have been presented in chronological order.
Throughout the study of this Atlas, the perception and understanding of the Seerah of the Prophet (S), becomes very easy as if the past events are passing before our eyes in the form of imaginary pictures.
I must thank Mr. Muhammad Adnan Salem, owner of Dar-Al-Fikr, Damascus, for his cooperation and permission to publish the translation of the book.
We pray Allah to make this work beneficial to all of us.
