The Prophet (saw) was not just a human being, he received a revelation from Allah (swt) and thus, he was a Messenger. His (saw) roles in life were not limited to being a father, a grandfather, and a husband. He (saaw) was a judge, a ruler, an army commander and a statesman. Thus to understand his personality we have to understand all his (saw) roles. And for him (saw) to be our example he (saw) should be obeyed in all of these aspects.
The life of the Prophet (saw) provides a source of legislation to each and every one in all aspects of their life. From the private citizen and to the head of the state. From the father and to the husband. And from the neighbour to the judge. Many writings have only talked about one aspect of the life of the Prophet (saaw), the family aspect. By doing this a major aspect of his (saaw) life was ignored or over shadowed. Thus, in this book we discuss the untold aspect of his personality in order to know how to obey him.
