The Lives of the Prophets is a series of lectures delivered to cover the stories of the prophets. It is the first such series produced in the English language. Extensive research in the original Arabic resources has been done to make this series possible. The series is based primarily on Ibn Kathir's " Al-Bidayah wa-nihayah (The Beginning and the End)". Br. Al-Awlaki has done an excellent job of relying almost completely on the Quran, Hadith and statements of the Noble Companions.

The Prophets in Islam were extraordinary individuals sent by Allah to various communities for the purpose of being exemplary role models to inspire and spread the message of Islam. The Qur’an mentions 25 Prophets by name but it is believed there were many more as the Qur’an states, “And We certainly sent into every nation a messenger” (Surah Nahl Ayat 16).

Teach your children prophet stories to build their character and build Islamic virtue of humility.

What is the purpose of the stories of the prophets?
The stories of the prophets were not mentioned in order to give plain information about history or to narrate stories of the past. They were narrated in order to teach believers something and make them draw lessons from various events. One of the important reasons why the stories of the prophets are mentioned in the Quran is to console and strengthen all of the believers, primarily the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and to threaten the unbelievers with torture.

What is the purpose of the stories of Prophets in the Qur'an? Why are they incomplete (except for the story of Prophet Yusuf (AS).
Short Answer: Quranic narrations of events in the lives of the prophets are like illuminating relevant scenes from their lives, so that future generations can derive good lessons from them. This means the stories of the prophets are not meant as their biographies.
