The Tafsir of ''Surah Qaf'' was written for seekers who wish to learn the meanings of the Book of Allah and deepen their connection to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and gramt him peace, by the Syrian gnostic (‘Arifbillah) and lover of the Prophet, the venerable Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin al-Husayni, may Allah have mercy upon him.
The blessings of the Qur'an are infused into the wisdom of its meanings. Sura Qaf comprises timeless messages focusing the reader on the hereafter, transporting him to the time of his own death (sakrat al-mawt), removing the veil from the Recording Angels (raqibun ‘atid) on his shoulders, and placing him squarely in the middle of the Day of Judgement.
Yet, despite this sura’s heavy focus on the akhira, it is Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin’s love of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and gramt him peace, that surfaces throughout this work.
About the Author :
He is Imam 'Abdallah b. Mujammad Najib Sirajuddin al-HalabI al-Husayni, rahimahullah, and is one of greatest scholars that the Syrian city of Aleppo—known in the Levant as “the city of scholars”—has ever known. He was a true friend of Allah Almighty, an extraordinary saint who dedicated his entire life to the service of Islam. His qualities were many and his skills outstanding.
Imam 'Abdallah, known as “the Light of Aleppo,” was a renowned spiritual master of the Rifa'i path, an expert in Hanafi jurisprudence, a Sufi' and brilliant exegete of the Qur'an, as well as a scholar and Hafidh of Hadith, having memorised more than one hundred thousand traditions. He was most famous, however, for his immense and intense love for our master Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah.
Imam 'Abdallah wrote more than thirty books dealing with Islamic spirituality, creed, ethics, and the noble manners of the Messenger of Allah, the sciences of Hadith and exegesis of the Qur'an. One of his famous works is the book of which we have the translation before us today: An Explanation of the Bayquni Poem in Hadith Terminology.
Imam 'Abdallah’s students were numerous, many of them becoming prominent scholars themselves, such as his son Shaykh Ahmad Sirajuddin, his nephew and son-in-law Shaykh Nur al-Din 'Itr, Shaykh Samir al-Nass, Shaykh Muhammad 'Awwama and Shaykh Muhammadal-Ninowy, may Allah preserve them.
Following a surgical operation carried out towards the end of his life, the health of Imam 'Abdallah deteriorated. On the 4th of March 2002 CE [1422 H.] he returned to his Lord. The news of his passing was announced throughout the Muslim world and covered it with a veil of sorrow. Imam 'Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni was buried in the Sha?b?niyya complex, next to the graves of its Ottoman founders.
