Anyone one who reads Ibn Ishaq (Sirat al-Rasul) or for that the abridge version of Ibn Hisham would fall in love with the Prophet of God immediately.

I urge everybody to read the abridged version for simplicity and unnecessary complicated details. it will show the reader how humane the Prophet was and how high his ethic were of divine teaching.

The Serat Al-Rasul is authentic and very much reliable source of information on the life of the Meccans and the prophet's tribe and the tribes around him.

you will be able to judge his logic and smartness and shrewd leadership.

because of his high qualities, mercilfulness and honesty almost all people after the conquering of Mecca revered him without reservation, they fought to protect him from evil people...

The battles he fought during his life were imposed on him, he did not ask for them.

the reader should know that for thirteen years the prophet did not wage any war against the people who attacked him until God gave him clearance to do so
