Muhammad the Perfect Man / Sayyid Muhammad ibn 'Alawi al-Maliki al-Hasani

Hardback
£25.00

This book is considered one of the best about the sublime perfections of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Written by the leading Islamic scholar of recent times - Sayyid Muhammad ibn Alawi al-Maliki al-Hasani of Mecca, it is presented in English for the first time. The author writes with great erudition and love about the perfection of the last of the Messengers, Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him, sourcing every point from careful exegesis of ayat of the Quran, well known hadith and episodes from the Sirah. The book starts with the perfection of the noble lineage of the Prophet, followed by the perfection of his physical form and discusses in detail the perfection of the Muhammadan heart. In the 300 pages that follow the Perfection of the Prophetic attributes are listed in great detail - ranging from the perfection of the Prophetic knowledge, justice, mercy, humility, leadership, courage, generosity, patience, loyalty, wisdom, oratory and forbearance to name but just a few. The author was blessed with the gift of writing in clear concise narrative style which was highly readable but retained the grandeur of the discussion at hand without being overwhelmed by the scriptural evidence which he presents with meticulous authority. This is captured by Khalid Williams' lucid and exemplary translation which adds depth, breadth, and clarity making this within easy reach of the English speaking world. The book ranks among the most important works of the Sayyid Muhammad who contends from a traditional Islamic point of view that the message of Islam can only be perfect if the bringer of that message is himself perfect. It serves as a timely reminder to the characteristics of the greatest human being that ever lived, and presents an insight into the noble Prophetic way, the behavioural code of conduct - the Sunna - of the Perfect Man, that he, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, left behind for all peoples for all times.
