Troid ( comments about the Hijrah Calendar...)
It is a distinction and honour for the Muslims to adhere to the Hijree calendar, the calendar marking the migration of their Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) upon which the Companions (radiyallaahu anhum) agreed. They did so without any celebration and the Muslims after them inherited it and have followed it for fourteen centuries to this day. For this reason it is not permissible for the Muslim to turn away from the Hijree calendar and taking up other than it among the calendars of the nations of the world such as the Meelaadee (Gregorian) calendar. It is substituting that which is worse for that which is best. Thus we advise all of our Muslim brethren to fear Allaah as He should be feared and to act in obedience to Him and to distance themselves from sinfulness and disobedience as well as to admonish for that and to patience. Let every sincere believer strive to the utmost to protect himself from the anger of Allaah and His curse in this life and the Hereafter by actualization of knowledge and eemaan (faith) by taking Allaah as his Guide, Helper, Ruler and Protector. Indeed He is the best Protector and the best Helper. It is sufficient to have your Lord as a guide and helper and to make the supplication of the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam): ‘O Allaah! Lord of Jibreel and Meekaa‘eel and Israafeel, Fashioner of the heavens and the earth, the Knower of the Unseen and Seen, You are the judge between Your slaves about what they have differed in. Guide me to what has been differed upon to the truth by Your will. Verily You guide whom You will to the Straight Path. All praise is due to Allaah the Lord of all that exists.’

The following question is from the "Principles for Understanding the Seerah" pg. 49
Question: What is your opinion on those books of serrah such as ar-Raheeq al-Makhtoom and the book of Aboo Bakr al-Jazaa'iree?
Answer: These books contain benefit and ar-Raheeq al-Maktoom is good and also the book of Abee Bakr al-Jazaa'iree is also good. However, there are some issues which have been assessed by the people of seerah yet these books have more benefits than other works that have been authored in these later years.
