Meticulously compiled from classical Ottoman sources, including rare manuscripts, traditional Islamic texts, sahih hadith and other source material, translated from Ottoman Turkish into English, this book presents a unique opportunity to learn about the Holy Prophet Muhammad’s life, peace be upon him, in detail. Combined with this scholarly background, Hajjah Amina combines her Sufi spiritual insight that helps to bring this book alive.
As Mawlana Shaykh Hisham says, “Muhammad: The Messenger of Islam” accurately depicts the perfected, blessed character and refined manners that Allah bestowed on His beloved Prophet. This illustrious work examines the greatness Prophet Muhammad showed throughout his life. It depicts the great lengths to which he went – many times risking his own life, suffering humiliation, torment and abuse from his own tribe, leaving the only home he knew, always tolerant of his attackers and seeking peace – to guide the entire world with practical lessons on living a successful life.”
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim writes about this book, “Muhammad: the Messenger of Islam” embodies the timeless teachings of holy souls through the ages, whom Allah has endowed with immense wisdom. May we benefit from what they offer, that these lessons help us evolve to higher stations, becoming truly in tune with the spiritual dimension of life, achieving a state of genuine peace – with ourselves and the world around us.”
Hajjah Amina Adil was a spiritual guide and Awliya of her time, having been a senior pupil of Shaykh Abdullah ad-Daghestani, who advised her to marry Shaykh Nazim. Her daughter, the esteemed Hajjah Naziha, the wife of Shaykh Hisham, has been the chief editor of this beautiful book.
