Dr. Ali Ataie reads and reflects upon selected passages from the renowned classical text of prophetology known as Kitāb al-Shifāʾ bi-Taʿrīf Ḥuqūq al-Muṣtafā ("The Book of Healing Concerning the Recognition of the Rights of the Chosen One") by the great Malikite scholar and jurist Qāḍī ʿIyaḍ b. Mūsā al-Yaḥṣubī (d. 544/1149). The overall aim of this 10-week series is to increase our love for the Messenger of Allah (ṣallahu ʿalayhi wa sallam) thus gaining the pleasure of our Lord (subḥana-hu wa taʿālā). The method of actualizing this goal is to become well acquainted with the character, rank, special qualities, miracles, and life events of our Master Muḥammad drawn from the Qurʾān, Hadīṯ, Sīrah, and rigorous scholarship of the intellectual lights of the Sunnite tradition.

About the Book: The famous 6th century Hijra classical text Ash-Shifa is widely accepted as the best, most comprehensive and most important book about the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Its full Arabic title is Ash-Shifa’ bi-ta‘rif huquq Mustafa ("Healing by the Recognition of the Rights of the Chosen One"). Qadi Iyad ibn Musa al-Yahsubi writes in the Introduction: "You have repeatedly asked me to write something which gathers together all that is necessary to acquaint the reader with the true stature of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, with the esteem and respect which is due to him, and with the verdict regarding anyone who does not fulfill what his stature demands or who attempts to denigrate his supreme status – even by as much as a nail-paring. I have been asked to compile what our forebears and Imams have said on this subject and I will amplify it with ayats from the Qur'an and other examples". This masterly translation is by Aisha Bewley. Muhammad, Messenger of Allah is the first English translation of Qadi Iyad's definitive text ash-Shifa. For a thousand years this beautiful and majestic book has guided the Muslim community to a straight and balanced path in their beliefs and practices concerning the Messenger, blessings of Allah and peace be upon him, in particular and the risalah (the message) in general.
