Description :

The valley of Hadramawt is situated in Yemen, in the southern foot of the Arabian Peninsular. Since members of the blessed Prophetic Household settled in the Valley in the fourth century of the Hijrah, who later became known as the Ba 'Alawi, it has been a centre of sacred knowledge and the attainment of spiritual perfection. In this remote valley, and particularly in its spiritual capital, Tarim, the Prophetic legacy was preserved and nurtured and then carried to the far corners of the earth.

Beginning with the first of the descendants of the Prophet, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, to settle in Hadramawt and looking down the centuries to recent times, “Imams of the Valley” examines the lives of a few of these illustrious figures. It is hoped that this book will enable the reader to increase in love for the Family of the Messenger, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, and for the pious, which is one of the foundations of Islam.
