Book Description

Having true love for the Messenger صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ is a divine command, while cultivating this love such that he صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ becomes more beloved to one than one’s own self was described by the Prophet صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ as the hallmark of true faith. None displayed this love for him صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ more than the best of generations, the Companions. Their love was described by the Commander of the Faithful ‘Ali رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ, who said, ‘The Messenger of Allah صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ was more beloved to us than our wealth, children, fathers, mothers and more beloved to us than cool water at the point of thirst.

So how do we attain such love? What can we do to increase our love for him صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ? How would those closest to him express their love for him صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ? And what did the Messenger صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ instruct us to do regarding this most significant of matters?

The author Shaykh Nür al-Din Itr &, the foremost hadith authority of Greater Syria in his era, outlines the true meaning of sincere love for the Prophet صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ in light of the Words of the Merciful and those of His Elect صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ.

With wonderful anecdotes of the love expressed by the family and Companions of the Messenger صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ, this book provides a path to attain, increase and perfect one’s love for the Mercy to the Worlds . With extensive commentary from translated excerpts from numerous classical works of prominent Muslim scholars and imams such as; al-Nawawi, al-Baghawi, al-Razi, Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari, and ‘Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi, as well as modern greats such as; Shaykh ‘Abd Allah Siraj al-Din and Sayyid Muhammad ibn ‘Alawi al-Maliki and others. It is an indispensable manual for every Muslim and student of Islamic spirituality who would like to further his love and connection to the Prophet of Islam صَلَّى ٱللَّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ.
