Description :

The Honourable Wives of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ, the Messenger of Allāh the Almighty, has been published to coincide and add to the celebrations of one hundred years of the right to vote for British women organised variously and sponsored by the UK parliament. The title has been translated into English in order to demonstrate the simple and pious lives the Holy Wives had led over fourteen hundred years ago. Allāh the Almighty has graced them with the appellation "The Mothers of the Believers" 'Ummahat al-Mumineen.' The followers must, therefore, endeavour to order their daily lives on the pattern of their memorable attributes and exemplary qualities.

The Holy Prophet, ﷺ, promulgated in his last sermon, appended herein, on the eve of his Farewell Pilgrimage to Makkah, the equal rights in all different facets of the life of the Ummah, male and female, black and white, Arabs and non-Arabs, the rich and the poor. The egalitarian principles of non-discrimination, justice and equality, in the address have been practiced over the centuries. The more meticulous their practices by the Muslim communities, the more accentuated have been the Islamic culture vis-a-vis the tenets of Islam.

For the female members of the Muslim Ummah the 'Mothers of the Believers' rank high as their beacon light in all aspects of human life. They practiced literally the dictates of, for example, the injunctions regarding the veil (purdah) as laid down sporadically in the Holy Qur'an most meticulously and it would be expected of Muslim women of each and every era to follow suit. The Honourable Wives, may Allah be pleased with them, are to be remembered with due deference and must not be reviled at any rate, because they are not only members of the Holy Prophet's, ﷺ, household and family but also prominent figures amongst the Companions whom one and all must respect, commands the Holy Prophet, ﷺ.

Hadrat Abu Anees Muhammad Barkat Ali (1911 - 1997), was a commissioned officer in the British Army in India. He made a dramatic exit in 1945 when the world was still at war; abdicating to live an austere life as a faqir (an indigent). This enabled him to write several hundred books on the many different aspects of Islam. As you read through his books, one will fathom his erudition and knowledge, above all, his spiritual practices and heights that pervaded his being. Dr Frenais Aranze, Vatican (Italy), visited Hadrat Abu Anees in 1988 at his seminary in Pakistan and wrote to him :

"I am particularly impressed by your religious devotion,
your living of a poor life and your positive dedication to
helping the needy. Quiet revolutions like your own are
  good ways to promote justice and peace."

"Hadrat Abu Anees Muhammad Barkat Ali was an ascetic, a man of great learning, a linguist, a philosopher, a mathematician, a jurist, a chemist, an herbalist - but above all a Sufi Master who lived for others and strove for nearness to God. Anyone interested in the Path to spiritual enlightenment through the discipline of Sufi practices will find inspiration in this book." ---Professor Mark Halstead.
