Think you’re the only one with a Timeline (on Facebook)? Take a look at the Prophetic Timeline of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad, may peace and blessings be upon him! It’s a great resource for parents, educators, youths and individuals to learn about the biography of the Prophet (seerah) in an interactive and fun way.
More than just interactive, the project by a Muslim Research and Development Foundation based in the UK puts together all of the important events in our beloved Prophet’s life (and meaningful events before) into a cogent, coherent and meaningful presentation.
Users can look at all of the important events relative to one another. Even better, click on any part of the timeline and you will be spoilt for choice as to what to learn. You can choose to:
Apart from the site’s signature Prophetic Timeline, you can also read the last sermon by the Prophet (encapsulated in an interactive scroll) or read a beautiful account of the Beloved’s self and character. An upcoming development is the exciting seerah map, which will make use of satellite technology to trace the travels of the Prophet.
If you’ve always felt little overwhelmed by the thousands of biographies on Allah’s Beloved, now you can supplement all that reading with an interactive interface that lets you consolidate all the events or refer to them quickly when you need to. It is also definitely a useful and meaningful tool for learning and reflecting.
