The Expeditions: An Early Biography of Muhammad PBUH

The Expeditions is among the oldest biographies about the Prophet Muhammad to survive to the present day. The primary author Ma’mar ibn. (96-153/714-770) was a renowned expert from Basra in the southern part of Iraq who was admired for his knowledge of prophetic tradition, Islamic law, and the interpretation of the Qur`an. 

The fascinating seminal work of the foundational period is a collection of stories that Ma’mar passed on from Ma’mar’s most famous student, ‘Abd al Razzaq of Sanaa telling of Muhammad’s life in the early days and his prophetic life as well as the tribulations and mishaps of his first followers when they conquered his conquest of the Near East.
