Is the Sira reliable?
« on: December 31, 2012, 11:20:31 AM »
I have read  Ibn Ishaq is not reliable.

Is there any Sira source that is reliable?

thanks, but i'm talking early islammic sources, not something written in 1979 and with no references.

Muhammad: His life based on the earliest sources by Martin Lings. I have a copy. It very good.

I really just want early islammic sources, that are reliable, for the sira.

If it has to be later, and you say it refers to the early sources, then i'd want it to be online.
