Description :

The uniqueness of the life of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, compared to that of other personalities and world figures present and past, is such that his legacy has not only remained, but is continually and endlessly on the rise. His praise continues to be spread far and wide by men and women whom Allah, exalted is He, has chosen in various times and places to carry the light of the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and convey his life to the people. This Prophetic legacy is enduring, and will forever remain as long as the testament of faith is upon the lips and hearts of believers.

Who is the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is primarily a didactic text in question & answer format. The book consists of 6 groups of questions & answers, progressing from relatively simple questions and short answers in the first group, to more complex issues with longer, more detailed explanations by the end. Each question & answer pair is given first in Arabic, as formulated by Habib 'Umar, or by his students under his supervision. Then, the translation of each Q & A is given. While perhaps not common in adult literature, the Q & A format is a time-honoured teaching technique, and readers of all ages and levels will find surprising benefits in this unique text.


The entire book has been beautifully arranged and presented by IGI’s world-class design team, to make reading an enjoyable and visually appealing reading experience for the whole family.



The Author :

Shaykh Habib 'Umar bin Hafiz was born 27 May 1963 is a Yemeni Sufi scholar, teacher, founder and the dean of Dar al-Mustafa Islamic seminary, at Hadramount, Tarim, in Yemen. He also a member of the Supreme Advisory Council for the Tabah Foundation in Abu Dhabi. Having memorised the Qu'ran at a very young age, he went onto study and memorise core texts in Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence), the Arabic language, Hadith (Prophetic traditions) and many other religious sciences. He studied Islamic sciences including spirituality from his father.

Later, he enrolled at the Ribat of al-Bayda’, where he began studying the traditional Islamic sciences under the tutelage of Al-Habib Muhammad bin Abd-Allah al-Haddar, as well as under the Shafi‘i jurist and scholar Al-Habib Zain bin Sumait. Habib Umar was given permission to teach soon after.  He then studied under the Mufti of Ta‘iz, al-Habib Ibrahim bin Aqil bin Yahya. He also studied under Shaikh al-Habib Muhammad al-Haddar, who gave him his daughter’s hand in marriage. Bin Hafiz then traveled to the Hejaz and studied several books with scholars, including Al-Habib Abdul Qadir bin Ahmad al-Saqqaf, Al-Habib Ahmed Mashur al-Haddad, and Al-Habib Attas al-Habashi.


This book has been made available to English speakers for whom we ask Allah to make it a means to attain proximity, in this life and the Hereafter, to Him and the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
