Description :

Few trials are as intense as the pain of losing a child: we are left bewildered, sometimes angry, and our most fundamental beliefs may be challenged. The Virtue of Remainings Steadfast When Losing a Child - Fadl al-Jalad 'Inda Faqd Al-Walad is a compendium of consolations found in the earliest texts of Islam, the great majority of them attributed to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, himself.

The devoted reader will learn how this uniquely painful suffering can be the occasion of reward by the Most Merciful, and a means of drawing nearer to Him and His Blessed Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. It is also hoped the book will serve as a useful reference work for; Imams, Hospital Workers and others with professional responsibilities.

The Author: Imam Jalal al-Din as-Suyuti: `Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal al-Din Abi Bakr,  Jalal al-Din al-Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi`i al-Ash`ari, also known as Ibn al-Asyuti (849-911), the mujtahid imam and renewer of the tenth Islamic century, foremost hadith master, jurist, Sufi, philologist, and historian, he authored works in virtually every Islamic science.

Born to a Turkish mother and non-Arab father and raised as an orphan in Cairo, he memorized the Qur'an at eight, then several complete works of Sacred Law, fundamentals of jurisprudence, and Arabic grammar; after which he devoted himself to studying the Sacred Sciences under about a hundred and fifty shaykhs.  A giant among contemporaries, he remained alone, producing a sustained output of scholarly writings until his death at the age of sixty-two. He was buried in Hawsh Qawsun in Cairo.
