Abstract





The research deals with the study of the life of Ibn Abd Al-Barr and his method in writing the biography of the Prophet through his book (Al-Durar fi Takhsat Al-Maghazi wa Al-Siyar). The most important advantages are his approach to writing the biography of the Prophet.






As the study of the biography of the Messenger, may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, and his conquests is the most attractive topic of historical research that attracts the attention of historians and modernists since the first century AH until the present time,  therefore, the study of Ibn Abd al-Barr's approach is important because of his high determination and great ability in the comprehensive historical codification of the Prophet's biography. Although it represents a historical period in the fourth century AH, the approach of Ibn Abd Al-Bar was distinguished for shortening the biography of Ibn Ishaq with the narration of Ibn Hisham and the book of Musa Ibn Uqba, and by limiting it to the important incidents only without mentioning fillers and errors in it.
