Abstract

The Seera’h  of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is considered to be a complete code of life. Right from the outset the Muslim scholars deeply pondered over the life history of the holy prophet (SAW) in order to infer juridical instructions which they called Fiqh al Seera’h. For instance, Ibn e Kathir, a prominent scholar of the eight centrury describes different events in the life of the Holy prophet in his book “Al-Bidaya wa Nihaya’h” highlights  solutions to different issues through the lessons learnt from the farewell sermon of the holy prophet (SAW) during his last pilgrimage. The farewell sermon of the Holy prophet (SAW) is a guiding principle for the whole humanity if acted upon even today. This study elaborates on the juridical instructions as received from this Farwell speech of the holy prophet (SAW.
