Seerah resources, love the question mA :)
1 Seerah Podcast Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda is doing, perhaps, the most in-depth audio seerah study that’s available for download in the English language. I’ve personally been there when he’s preparing - he uses numerous classical seerah sources, has all of the books out, and is providing a comprehensive study from a lens that emphasizes spiritual self-development, family, and community. You can find the first session on the bottom of the page here, there are over 100 hours recorded to this point, and they’re still going.
2 Muhammad: Man and Prophet by Adil Salahi - probably the best English seerah book resource I’ve read. While most other biographies of the Prophet [saw] function more like an encyclopedia, this text has a narrative flow to it, telling more like a story, briefly pausing to highlight points of benefit.
3 In The Footsteps of The Messenger by Dr. Tariq Ramadan - a great primer on seerah, provides great insight and details into the life of the Prophet [saw] even though it’s more on the beginner side.
For the most advanced readers…
4 Zaad ul Ma’ad by Ibnul Qayyim (r) (d. 751H/1350AD) - Written on his journey to Hajj from Damascus to Makkah (all from memory!), this text is a wonderful example of how classical scholars viewed the seerah. There are numerous rulings extrapolated from it, but if you’re just looking for virtues and benefit without law (for whatever reason), then you can also find the nuanced stories and reflections IQ shares here to be amazing.
5 Seerah Ibn Ishaq by Ibn Ishaq (r) (d. 150-159H) - having lived so closely to the time of the Prophet [saw], and being from the earliest generations to follow. Ibn Ishaq (r) produced a work of biography on the Prophet [saw] that has been referenced classically by scholars throughout time in their development of their own writings on Seerah.
May Allah increase our desire to learn and emulate the Prophet [saw] and our love for him. Ameen!
How to evacuate.. they have been warned to evacuate their house by a missile and they only have less than one minuet to leave their house
See how terrorist the IDF are . they are using missiles as a way to warn innocent people that you have to leave this house right now.
Ever waited for something to happen? Something totally out of your control so that you are left without a choice and are forced to wait?
Something so incredibly valuable that you are absolutely terrified that it just might not happen. And that fear – will it, will it not – is eating you away…
A rule of thumb to make relationships work:

Listen to the response of Palestinian youth in Gaza when a reporter for Vice News says he’s scared after hearing an Israeli airstrike
We were given some tips for effective talking from an Imam. He said:
"Purity, clarity, truthfulness, straightforwardness and fear of Allaah.
Find where you lack and start from scratch if you have to. Only then will you be a good speaker.
Truth is all that can save a person. Truth is always beneficial, lasting and it keeps you easy. An easy life is a life of truth. This is knowledge squeezed out for you.
Next is, positive thinking. Because this is the only thing that saves someone from anxiety after truth.
This is the most successful combination of successful people. Truth on their part and positive thinking about others.
As for answering a question, it’s everyone’s own decision whether to answer or not. There is no force upon you in either of the situations.
But yes, if your truth saves someone then it’s your duty to save the person.
And if your silence harms someone, then your silence is not permissible.
These are simple principles.”
oh my god, this hit me like a million thunder bolts racing through my body.

British Muslim convert Peter Chatfield, is being held in Queens Hospital, Sahara Ward B5, due to spine cancer that has left him paralysed from the chest down. Doctors have given him an estimate of six months left to live.
Chatfield called upon Muslim brothers to surround him through his rough period of time, as he doesnt have many Muslim friends.
The response he received was amazing. Not long after the message spread via social media, hundreds of Muslims from all backgrounds went to visit Peter in the hospital.
“I am truly blessed,” Peter was quoted saying by Ilmfeed. “I don’t turn anyone away. In the last few days I have had over 400 visitors. It’s madness, and I’m so thrilled and feel so blessed to be so loved. That is the most important thing here – love.”
Peter has recieved an astonishing response to his cry out to the Muslim community. A visitor flew in from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, just to see him and fly back. The day before a family from Penaylvania, USA came to spend some time with him.
Peter said “I know I haven’t long left, I’m ready to go and I hope anyone I have hurt or upset can forgive me before I leave you all.”
“Am I scared about leaving life? No, I’m at peace and surrounded by so much love. In fact I had to temporarily block my phone as I couldn’t handle the calls and messages I have received. I have not had one moment of doubt of where I’m going. Blessed be those who visit me.”
He added, “I wish everyone here a speedy recovery. There’s so much you learn about human nature and life. Some people don’t receive a single visit and I have hundreds.”
“It’s so sad but that is the reality of life. People need to take a minute and spend some time with their loved ones – doing the important things in life – it’s a lot more than just a working, eating, sleeping routine for 60 or 70 years.”
Here are the details to his hospital, please call the ward before visiting him:
