The Hidden Pearls (Al-Lulu Al-Maknoon) : Seerah Encyclopedia is a comprehensive work in 11 volumes on the life journey of Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam). This book, printed in multi-colour print on glossy paper, is illustrated with beautiful pictures and maps, covering all aspects related to the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam). Each event, written in a lucid style, has been thoroughly researched, examined and vetted by a 13 member Committee.
The first volume comprises of the following sections:
- Pre-Islamic Religions of Arabian Peninsula

The first volume has described in detail the social conditions of times of the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam), the modes of life and the habits and the temperament of the inhabitants of Arabian Peninsula as well as the general conditions of the people living near or around them. Acquiring this knowledge is essential to attain a proper understanding of the age in which he lived, the most brilliant epoch of human history, and to discover the reason for which Allah SWT chose the Arabian Peninsula as his birthplace and the starting point of his sacred, universal mission.
We hope that readers of Hidden Pearls will be transported mentally and spiritually to the era of the Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam). To feel as though one was experiencing that blessed age, being instructed, chastened, and refined morally and spiritually, to feel oneself being moulded into a dutiful slave of Allah SWT as they read the biography of the greatest man who ever lived.
In these dark and disturbing times, the Muslim Ummah is confronted with innumerable challenges. The entire disbelieving world is arrayed against the believers attempting to challenge and destroy Islam from the inside out. Through political and academic means, they are working day and night in an effort to achieve this end. A global culture of instant gratification, fulfilling desires and acquiring the latest entertainment technology has alienated Muslim youth from Allah's Messenger (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam), pushing them to cut off their relationship to him entirely. The only solution to this terrible situation is to rekindle the love of Allah's Messenger (Sallalahu Alayhe Wassalam) in the hearts of every Muslim, illuminating their souls with an accurate account of his life journey.
