The Biography of the Prophet in the approach of the Book of Al-Ajab in Explanation of the Reasons by Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani (T.: 852 AH / 1448 AD) (Transforming the Qiblah as a model)
Othman Mishaan Abd Allahibi, Sohaib Mahmoud Mahal Al-Jumaili
Despite the many narrations of the Prophet’s biography, the narrators did not cover all its aspects. There is no doubt that the Qur’an is full of biographical events. The narrators did not write a novel without referring to the Holy Qur’an or books of interpretation and Qur’anic sciences. In this sense, the researcher relied on one of the most famous books on the sciences of the Qur’an, which is the book Al-Ajab in explaining the reasons for Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani (T.: 852 AH / 1448 AD). What distinguishes this book is its clear way of narrating the events by indicating the occasions of the revelation of the Qur’anic verses.
The research is divided into an introduction, two sections, a conclusion, sources and references. The first section deals with the translation of Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani, and the second section deals with the narrations of the Prophet’s biography in the conversion of the qiblah.
