Details:  Proofs of Prophethood,
[A5] Paperback - 461 pages,
by Shaykh Abdel Haleem Mahmoud,
Translated by Habib Bewley,
Edited by Abdalhaqq Bewley & Muhammad Isa Waley.




Description :


What proof do we have that Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was a true Prophet, a bearer of a Divine Message? This is one of the most important things for every Muslim to know, both for their own benefit and in order to help them to explain Islam to non-Muslims.


Every sound book that has been written about the Prophet, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, provides solid evidence of his Prophethood, since they illustrate the life and character of a perfect personality - a life which no liar, imposter, or ignoble man could possibly have led.


The author has consulted the authentic classical sources on seerah (biography) and Hadith (tradition), and quotes extensively from them and from secondary literature including the writings of orientalist scholars. He discusses at length the life of the Final Messenger, his miracles and the methods of establishing the truth of his Prophetic stature.



The author of this book, the Egyptian scholar Shaykh Abdel Haleem Mahmoud, was a Rector of al-Azhar University, Cairo, the oldest seat of learning in the Muslim world. He produced a number of major works on Islamic doctrine and spirituality. Presented in a fluent translation by Habib Bewley, Proofs of Prophethood is an important contribution to modern literature in English on fundamental aspects of Islamic thoughts and doctrine.
