Just as Allah is the Sustainer of all the worlds, the Holy Quran is the remembrance for the worlds, so His Beloved Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) is the mercy for the worlds, The Holy Qur'an is the path of guidance and the biography of the Prophet is sustenance and viaticum of that journey. As Islam is incomplete without the Holy Quran, so the practice of humankind, according to the spirit of Qur'an, is impossible without the seerah of the Prophet (PBUH). Therefore, the relationship between the biography of the Prophet and the Quran is integral. That is why, just as Allah almighty has protected the Quran in terms of its words. He has also taken care of its meaning in the form of the Seerah of His prophet Muhammad, till the Day of Resurrection. So that life for humanity in every field, at the individual and collective levels, the Seerah of prophet, as the best way of life has always been available. Quran is the most important and irrefutable source of the biography of the Prophet. How Allah almighty himself does introduces and present His Prophet? It is very important question. In last few years, great attention has been paid to the biography of the Prophet (PBUH) at the official level in Islamic Republic of Pakistan, which was due on the Islamic scholars of the nation. Therefore, in order to get the right benefit from the Seerah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), we must first turn our attention to the most important source of it; the Quran. To be aware of the teachings of the Seerah; which are given in the principle form by the Holy Qur'an, we need to notice the concept presented by the Quran itself. In this paper, an attempt has to be made to shed light of the Seerah of the prophet (PBUH) from the guidelines provided in the Holy Quran according to the need of the time.
