Although, due to some proofs, the life-historiography began too late, but
always the holy prophet’s biography has been noted by the Muslim.
Compiling on this subject is still continuous.
Dependence on some religion or school, also relying on some bases and
criteria, by the life-historiographers; and different destinations, approaches,
principles and motivations created very various works on the life-style.
One of new writings in the Seminary (Ḥawza) is a book entitled Al-Sahīh
min Sīra al-Nabīyy al-A‘zam by Sayyid Ja‘far Murtadā ‘Āmilī. Conveying
character of the Messenger of Allah in the different resources, he studies the
phenomenon of prohibition of narration and its role in deviation of the
historical realities, and also currency of the fabricated traditions. He
deliberates the role of the people of the Book who converted to Islam, and
the story-tellers. After description of the agitated principles and criteria in
compiling life-styles, he presents some principles, rules and criteria for a
correct scientific research in this regard. Lastly he tries to present a true
picture of the Messenger of Allah’s life, based on the Shia and Sunni main
resources, in the field of exegesis, narration and history.
