Description :

In this day and age, it is necessary to reiterate that the most essential achievement of a human being is to learn to discriminate between the Absolute and the relative and to always prefer the Absolute. In doing so, one arrives at His proximity in Paradise. Every other earthly endeavour should be subservient to that ultimate purpose. Since the Absolute is the eternal ocean of infinite beauty and compassion, the challenge is one of detaching oneself inwardly from the relative, the imperfect and evanescent and attaching oneself to the beauty and perfection of the One Diety, God, until such time as one becomes completely enveloped in divine mercy.

This book is about the Divine Envoys that were chosen by the Absolute to manifest His compassion and justice among the people of the Arabian Peninsula, save the last one who was sent to the whole of humanity. There are innumerable lessons to be learned from their lives and teachings. This is why they were recounted in the Qur’an:

              ''We recount to you the best of narratives.'' [al-Qur'an 12 : 3]

              '' In their stories is a lesson for men of understanding. These
                are no invented tales, but a confirmation of previous Scripture,
                a detailed explanation of all things, a guidance and a mercy to
                those people who believe. ''
[al-Qur'an 12 : 111]

Every reading of their stories gives new spiritual insights, especially into the psychological attitudes and motives that lead some men to accept the message and become men of God and others to deny the Absolute, reject its mercy and become fuel for the fire of Hell. The Qur’an says,

                '' So narrate to them the stories, perhaps they will reflect. ''
                                                                                 [al-Qur'an 7 : 176]
