The first part of this volume, Visiting the Prophet (S), was excerpted from Manasik al-Hajj (The Rites of Hajj) by the gnostic and lover of the Prophet (S), Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin.
The second part of this volume, The Virtues of Medina Munawarra & Masjid al-Nabawi (S), comprises 40 Hadith compiled by one of the last judges of the Ottoman Empire and the erudite scholar, Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabahani (may Allah be well-pleased with both of our authors!). It is an excerpt from his book 40 Forty-Hadith Collections, which covers a broad-range of important topics, this being the translation of the 24th collection.
And last but not least, a Commentary on the Blessed Names of Medina Munawara has been presented as an appendix, because as the Arab adage has it: the multitude of names for a thing indicates its importance’, and nothing is more dear to the heart of a Muslim than Medina.
