Ibn Ishaq's As-Seerah An-Nabawiyyah is the earliest surviving traditional biography, and was written just over 100 years after Muhammad (SAW) passed away. It survives in the later editions of Ibn Hisham and al-Tabari.
About Ibn Ishaq
MUHAMMAD IBN ISHAQ IBN YASAR IBN KHIYAR( 85 AH (704 A.D) - 151 AH (767 A.D): was born circa AH 85, or roughly 704 AD, in Medina. He was the grandson of a man, Yasar, who had been captured in one of Khalid ibn al-Walid's campaigns and taken to Medina as a slave. Yasar converted to Islam and was freed. Yasar's son Ishaq was a traditionist, who collected and recounted tales of the past. Muhammad ibn Ishaq was thus carrying on the work of his father.
At the age of thirty, he traveled to the Islamic province of Egypt to attend lectures given by the traditionist Yazid ibn Abu Habib, then to Kufa and Hira, and finally to Baghdad, where the Caliph al-Mansur provided him with the means of writing his great work.
He died in Baghdad in 151AH (761)
He was the earliest person to write the most comprehensive and most important biography (Sira) of The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) As-Seerah An-Nabawiyyah.
Ibn Ishaq's work survived only as it was quoted by the later historians Ibn Hisham and Tabari. Alos, his work is of great historical interest as the earliest surviving biography of Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
.. 'O men! I am sent unto you all, as the messenger of Allah, to Whom belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He That giveth both life and death. So believe in Allah and His messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, who believeth in Allah and His words: follow him that (so) ye may be guided.'
