Eight hundred and fifty years ago the sacred Mawlid was extolled, celebrated and promoted by one of the greatest authorities who ever walked the face of the earth. Despite recent objections from certain misguided groups, the great Imams and authorities of the past, throughout the history of of Islam have commended, celebrated and wrote upon the sacred Mawlid an-Nabi, ?.
This book is of another level and quality. The author has scattered pearls of direct knowledge (Ilm al-Irfan) within it's pages. The reader will experience an amazing sense of inner joy and deep state of spirituality whilst reading this book. The manner in which Sayyiduna Ghawth al-A'zam, may Allah be pleased with him, wrote this book seems as if he were giving a live report report as things happened.
The text of his book appeared to me as if he was present on the Night of Mi'raj and relating these incredible happenings. The explanations of different Realms and their happenings are so realistic that one will rarely find this sensation in other Islamic literature. This book opens the chest of the true believer and fills it with the love and respect for the Glorious Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
