    Seven Days to Read the Prophet's Biography .To make it easier for our readers and to give everyone a chance to learn about the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), we present the book, Muhammad: God's Messenger, in the form of seven booklets. They provide an account of the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), from the time of his birth until he passed away after having fulfilled the task assigned to him and giving good counsel to all. These booklets introduce us to the Prophet's noble character, his humble life, and his conduct with his family at home, his companions and people in all different positions in society. It tells us how he strove to fulfil the task God assigned to him and we contemplate how he dealt with his enemies and the exceptional magnanimity he showed to all. We learn about his simple, but highly effective, method of advocating his message, based on wisdom and gentle admonition, and learn how keen he was to ensure that justice and security should be enjoyed by all people. In short, we realize that his life was a practical image of what God says about him in the Qur'an: "We have sent you as a manifestation of Our grace towards all the worlds." (21: 107)
