Maybe I have asked this question before,so delete this thread and post if it turns out like that.
I have some questions though.

how,when and by whom were the earliest biographies of the Prophet(PBUH) written?

according to some western scholars," by the time the oral traditions were being collected, the Muslim community had grown and also fractured into rival sects and different schools of thought and each sect and school had its own, sometimes conflicting, traditions of what Muhammad and his companions had done and said. Early Muslim scholars therefore developed methods of hadith study to sort hadith into reliable or weak traditions. Traditionalists rely on their efforts while the skeptics feel that the question must be revisited."

Did these divisions in anyway influence the text and authenticity of the hadith ?
I think I have read a refutation before about this.

I am also curious to know more about the earliest Islamic scholars like at-Tabari and Ibn Ishaq.

thanks.

Is it true that Ibn Ishaq's seerah of the Prophet (PBUH) is the earliest known?

assalaamu alaykum,

as a point of advice to you, perhaps you should go to the muslim scholars first and not take your deen from western christian and secular scholars who wish to destroy and debase islalm?
