Commentary on the Abrahamic Prayer

Author:
Imam Yusuf b. Isma'il al-Nabahani
Description:
Of all the supplications recited by Muslims around the world, perhaps the most oft-repeated are the supplications connected with the five daily prayers, among which is the closing supplication called the al-Salat al-Ibrahimiyya, or the Abrahamic Prayer, which extols our master Muhammad Seal of the Prophets (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), his Purified Family, and links him to Prophet Ibrahim (Peace be upon him), described in the Quran as “a nation unto himself.” This commentary on the Abrahamic Prayer, taken from Sheikh Yusuf al-Nabahani’s Sa‘adat al-darayn fi al-salat ‘ala Sayyid al-kawnayn (Felicity in the Two Abodes Through Prayers upon the Master of the Two Realms), examines each phrase of the closing supplication and sheds light on their inner and outer meanings.

Author:
Imam Yusuf b. Isma'il al-Nabahani

The Pinnacle of Beauty

Author:
Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan
Description:
This small but detailed work by Taj al-Shari'a, Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan, scion of the great reviver (Mujaddid) Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, addresses the famous narration of Thuwayba, a slave whom Abu Lahab freed out of joy for the Prophet’s birth - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - , and the narrations that detail the lightening of punishment that Abu Lahab received on account of that, and tackles an assortment of objections made to these narrations, which in essence limit the Prophet’s mercy and intercession. The central thesis of this treatise is that the Prophet’s - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - power of intercession encompasses non-believers; but not in the sense of general amnesty from Hell, rather because of the lightening of the punishment of lengthy standing to be suffered on the Last Day.

Of Pure Origin

Author:
Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan
Description:
This small treatise penned by Taj al-Shari'a, Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan, the eponymous scholar and scion of the great reviver (Mujaddid) Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, addresses the purity of the Prophet’s - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - forefathers, and in particular the father of Prophet Ibrahim - may peace be upon him - whom many, based on a shallow understanding of Arabic and Quranic exegesis, mistakenly call Azar and consider a disbeliever.

The Companions are the Stars of Guidance

Author:
Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan
Description:
This treatise written by the scholar and sage, Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan, discusses the famous hadith ascribed to the Prophet -may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him: “My Companions are like the stars; whomever of them you follow you will be guided.” This hadith was declared weak by many scholars; however, the author explains that if a weak hadith gains fame and general acceptance it can be judged as authentic. Imam al-Suyuti said in Tadrib al-rawi:“Some of them have said that a hadith is judged authentic if it is met with general acceptance among the people, even if it does not possess an authentic chain.”
