How is it not so!?! It explains the way of the Best of Creation, upon whom be peace and blessings.''The Final Messenger, the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was sent for the guidance of humanity. His way is the straight path on which one traverses through this transient world onward into the next ; the path of paradise is tread in his footsteps, by emulating his perfect example.The endeavour of hadith scholars, generation after generation until today, has been to know what is authentically attributed to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. An effort to know that perhaps stems from the reality that success in this world and the next is in adherence to the Sunnah. The way of the Final Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, must be known; it is the way for humanity to live.*Text is primarily in Arabic, with the appropriate English translation.
