Have you always wanted to know more about the background of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)? From which prophet he is a descendant of? What exactly happened in the battle at Badr and Uhud. What his last words were before he passed away? For these questions and more, Prophetic Timeline is your answer! An interactive website that was set up by the Muslim Research & Development Foundation (MRDF).
A lot is known regarding Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). However, this isn’t always dealt with carefully. Whether this happens accidentally or on purpose remains to be seen. With this website an attempt is made to give an accurate description of the Prophet (PBUH) and his life.
“A pinpoint timeline of the most pivotal moments of the life of Muhammad. Voiceover narrations of professional quality bring the events to life, and quote of great wisdom from the Quran mark them as they unravel through time. Notes and links provide further insight and seek to address widely held misconceptions about The Prophet.”
The intention is not to compete with classical or modern works but to get to know more about the Prophet (PBUH) through an interactive manner. From a description of the character of the Prophet (PBUH) until his last sermon. As an example you can find the following two traditions:
His wives and Companions spoke of his humour and cheerfulness. He said once, “I joke but always tell the truth.”
His dying words were, “Treat your women well, and do not oppress your servants, the prayer, the prayer, don’t be neglectful of the prayer. O God, my highest companion, O highest companion.”
A very interesting and unique section on the website is the ‘Sirah Map’ which is still under construction. It will be possible to go back in time and, through a 3D map, experience the geographical locations and events. One will then be able to follow the Prophet’s (PBUH) footsteps, so to speak.
This and much more can be found on prophetictimeline.com. A must see for everyone, Muslims and non-Muslims alike!
It has been very helpful in my classes on the Prophet’s (PBUH) life. I hope that it may be just as beneficial for you.
