Hello!

So I am trying to find a good biography on Muhammad

I'm looking for something comprehensive. Like historically rigorous but from a Muslim point of view. So not written by an author who starts with the assumption that Muhammad was not a Prophet, but also not just propaganda.

Know what I mean?

I believe another good is "Muhammad: man and prophet"

I can't recommend this enough. It is wonderfully easy to read and is honestly beautifully written.

Hamza Yusuf taught a 24 part class on this book. only they didn't have enough, so he used 2 other books as well. but you can listen or download here:

the Shaykh isn't a...mainstream Muslim, but it's a good way to begin to understand the Seerah.

I don't remember the name of it, but the one done by Karen Armstrong is very good. I read it when I was non-muslim. John Esposito has some good works as well.

The sealed nectar is very good also.
