Understanding the Life of the Prophet Muhammad ( sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam), Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali (A Recent Egyptian Scholar), Hardback 514 Pages, International Islamic Federation of Students Organisation IIFSO , Distributed By International Islamic Publishing House IIPH.

Many books have been written about the life of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). In writing this book, the author had a specific objective. He used the life of the Prophet (SAW) to go onto depth about the Prophet (SAW) many historians only touched on the various aspects of his life. This book goes into detail and provides reasons and explanations for whatever took place. It is a blend of modern analysis and ancient detail. Its objective is to nurture faith, purify characters and fan the struggle to embrace the truth and be faithful to it.

Indeed, the life of the Prophet (SAW) has been documented as a message for practical implementation, not intellectual entertainment.

‘You may think that you have studied the life of Muhammad by following his history from birth to death but this is a grave mistake. You will never really understand the Sirah unless you study the noble Qur’an and the purified Sunnah. The amount that you derive from these will tell the strength of your connection with the prophet of Islam, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam’ From the Epilogue.

An important work of the Egyptian scholar Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali. Drawing upon his profound classical Islamic learning and an extensive knowledge of modern science, Sheikh al-Ghazali has broken new ground in the study of Seerah, bringing to bear a fresh but wholly authentic approach. This is a work which all serious students should have, to complement the Seerah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali was one of the most influential Islamic scholars of the twentieth century, both as an author and in the field of Da’wa. Born at Buhayra, Egypt in 1335/1917, he received his schooling at the Alexandria Religious Institute before entering the Faculty of Usul al-Din at the University of al-Azhar.

In 1362/1943, al-Ghazali was appointed Imam and lecturer at al-Makataba al-Khadra in Cairo. He later became a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a close associate of Sheikh Hasan Al-Banna. During the early 1950s he worked for the Islamic Movement in various capacities. Subsequently his work for Islam extended over many parts of Africa, Asia. Europe and America as well as the Arab countries.

Between 1391/1971 and 1410/1989, Sheikh al-Ghazali rose through the ranks of the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf, to become Undersecretary for Islamic Da’wa, His academic career included spells of teaching at the universities of Umm al-Qura (Makka) and Qatar: and he served as a Chairman of the Academic Council first of al-Amir ‘Abd al-Qadir University, at Constantine, Algeria, and later of the international institute of Islamic Thought at Cairo

Sheikh Muhammad al-Ghazali published over sixty books, several of which have been published in translation. Probably the most important is ‘Journey through the Qur’an’ (al-Tafsir al-mawdu’ li-suwar al-Quran al Karim). He received many awards in recognition of his contribution to learning and Da’wa. He died in 1416/1996 while attending a conference in Saudi Arabia. Rahimahu ‘Llah. Continue reading

This book presents an attempt at showing the integral relationship between Ibrahim (as) and his Progeny, only three of whom, besides himself, have been called the Messenger of Resolve. As the father of the most eminent leaders of  humanity, Ibrahim (as) still occupies the singular position of being Khalil an outstanding bondman of Allah (SWT).  His life has shown a long history of search for truth. Abraham is the father of the great Messengers, Musa, Isa and Muhammad (PBUT). Those relationships should motivate Eastern and Western Ibrahim’s countries to co-operate for  adopting policies of Peace instead of going to war with each other. Today, we do seek for more earnest endeavor for peace, definitely more than we needed peace in final decades of the last century. Continue reading

Indeed, Allaah responds to the supplications of Muslims. More often than not, Muslims raise their hands in prayer, during trials and disasters which inflict some Muslim countries, like in the period we are living now. How many times did the Muslims invokeAllaah? How many old men and women beseech Allaah, with humbleness? This book is an adaption of a friday khutbah given by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid that makes a clear distinction between our dua and Alllahs help in whatever shape or form Allah (swt) sees best.

Due to the increase in the number of magicians and fortunetellers lately, those who claim the ability to cure  people by the use of magic and fortunetelling, and due to their spread in some of the Muslim countries and the way  they take advantage of some simple-minded, ignorant people, it became necessary for me to clarify the great danger of these people on Muslims and Islaam, for it entails becoming attached to other than Allaah and disobeying His commands and the command of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
