Title: Portrait Of Human Perfection

Sub Title: A description of the appearance and character of the Prophet Muhammad

Full Description: About this book

The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was more than a messenger. As Rasul Allah he is the embodiment of human perfection, and his character and behaviour form a vital part of his mission to mankind. His Lord said of him in the Holy Qur'an: "And truly you are immense in character" ; and he said of himself, " I have been sent only to perfect nobility of character" . Indeed his entire life was a perfect model and illustration of fineness of outlook and behaviour.

This book explains in detail this perfection manifested itself in the daily life of the Blessed Prophet. It also provides a vivid description of his physical appearance and attributes. The reader will surely gain from it a deeper love for the bearer of Allah's final Message and a greater understanding of the message of Islam which he conveyed to mankind through his words and his deeds.

About the author

The Distinguished Egyptian scholar Sheikh Ahmad al Hawfi began researching this work in Ramadan of 1386 H. After gathering a great deal of material from a wide range of classical sources, he found himself torn between his desire to write the book and his fear of failing to do justice to the subject of the most perfect human being ever created. Whilst teaching at the Islamic University in Omdurman, Sudan he discussed the project with Sheikh Majdhub  Hajjar. As the latter was encouraging him to proceed with it, Sheikh al-Hawfi shivered and heard a voice whisper in his right ear: "Do not publish this book until you have stood before the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, and sought his permission."

At that time political difficulties between Egypt and Saudi Arabia made it extremely difficult for Sheikh al-Hawfi to obey this instruction. Finally, however, all the obstacles were overcome and he was able to visit the Hijaz. After first performing 'Umra Sheikh al-Hawfi found himself in al-Madinat al-Munawwara. Standing before the blessed tomb, he petitioned our Master Muhammad, Emissary of Allah, for permission to write the book, and then entered a semi-conscious state from which he emerged with his doubts fully resolved. Sheikh al-Hawi then returned to Egypt to complete the book, a task which took thirteen years. May Allah reward him.
