A complete authoritative book on the life of Prophet Muhammad (S) by Sheikh Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarkpuri. It was honored by the World Muslim League as first prize winner book. Whoever wants to know the whole life style of the Prophet in detail must read this book.

Muhammad (S) is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him, are severe against the disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (fore heads) from the traces of prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurah (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, and becomes thick and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers, that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (Paradise). (Al-Fath: 29)

The Prophet Muhammad (S) said: "The example of guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is like abundant rain falling on the earth. Some of which was fertile soil that absorbed rain-water and brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. (And) another portion of it was hard and held the rain-water and Allah benefited the people with it and they utilized it for drinking (making their animals drink from it) and to irrigate the land for cultivation. (And) a portion of it was barren which could neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation (then that land gave no benefits). The first is the example of the person who comprehends Allah's Religion (Islam) and gets benefit (from the knowledge) which Allah (Azawajal) has revealed through me (the Prophet) and learns and then teaches it to others. The (last example is that of a) person who does not care for it and does not take Allah's Guidance revealed through me (he is like that barren land)." (Al-Mukarramah).

This is very beautiful, multicolored with beautiful illustration, maps and photos. A unique book on the life of Prophet.

Reviewer: on 12/17/2011
Monumental book with the sort of comprehensive, definitive and non politicized content so lacking in English-language biographies of the Prophet[Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him]. I highly recommend this book for Muslims as it is not only very readable but also provides explanations of Hadith, chains of transmission etc, places things in context and is as gripping and exciting and as moving as it should be. Likewise, it doesn't politicize the life of Muhammad [Peace and Blessing Be Upon Him] from the Muslim perspective either If that makes sense]. It simply tells His [PBUH] story. That said, I often recommend The Sealed Nectar to non Muslims as well because so much of what is written about our beloved Prophet [Peace and Blessings Be Upon] and widely available on sites like Amazon is written by non-scholars with a xenophobic, biased agenda [Karen Armstrong's biography aside]. I have found some non Muslims are excited about the prospect of actually reading something from "the other point of view." I believe with wider exposure the author Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarkpuri could find a very large audience amongst non-Muslims, Insha'Allah. I believe one could make great strides in da'wah with this book, Insha'Allah. AND this book is offered at an excellent price, makes a great gift and is something Insha'Allah you will have on your bookshelf for the rest of your life. Dar-us-Salam offers many, many excellent publications but I would say this award-winning book is among the best they have ever sold.
