Modern times have made it even more important that Muslims acquaint themselves with their Prophet (asws), not only for the sake of their personal spiritual development, but also for the sake of the religion as a whole. There has perhaps never been a time when the world was more in need of an authentic depiction of the Best of Creation (asws). Our Master Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (asws) is a unique work discussing the noble qualities and characteristics of the Final Prophet (asws) in a way that is infused with love and devotion. In the first volume of this book, the author depicts all the fine attributes of our Prophet (asws) with respect to his physical beauty, his eloquence and wisdom, his exalted status, his sublime character and his mercy (asws).
This incredible expression of Prophetic love was written by the scholar of Aleppo, Imam Abdallah Sirajuddīn al-Husayni (ra), who was not only a Hafiz, a leading scholar of Hadith and exegete of the Quran, but also a true Saint, referred to by scholars as The Pole of Prophetic Love of our Times. His book is the product of true scholarship and virtue.
It is as though the Shaykh (ra) was looking directly at the Messenger of Allah (asws) before him as he wrote, deriving his beautiful expressions from the light of his (asws) countenance, so that by divine providence his insight was opened, and he grazed in the pastures of subtle secrets, uncovering the beauty and perfection of the Messengers (asws) character, imbibing the fragrance of the Prophetic Sunnah, bathing in the light of the Muhammadan reality and its meanings, and tasting of its fruits, and then gathering all of these illuminations in a work so noble and rarefied that it would not be surprising if it were to be read to a sick person and so cure him.
