Hayel M. H. Al-Bree


This article studies the life of Ibn Hishām al-Ma‘āfiri, his education and the views that scholars had of him. It also studies his narratives and draws a framework to understand the sources that he used in his biography and the importance of his work among the Prophetic biographers, as earlier biographers were not as elaborate as Ibn Hishām.
