THE EMISSARY ELECT (2nd Revised Edition)
English Translation of Sirat-e-Rasul-e-Mukhtar صلى الله عليه وسلم
Author: Akhtar Husayn al-Faydi al-Misbahi
Translated by: Abd Ahmad
The Emissary Elect is a concise Sīrahof the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم, highlighting the main events in his blessed life. It is therefore ideal as a teaching template that can be used in Madrasahs, as well as Mawlid gatherings as it is brief and can be covered in a short period of time, or simply as an introduction to the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم for someone who is not familiar with his blessed life.
We hope when one has read this concise biography of the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلمone will have the desire then to progress to a more detailed Sīrah and read about him صلى الله عليه وسلم in more depth. We advise that one reads Sīrat al-Muṣṭafā صلى الله عليه وسلم by ʿAllāmah ʿAbd al-Muṣṭafā al-Aʿẓamī which is available in English entitled Muḥammad, The Prophet of Islām, as many ‘Siyar’ are misinformative and therefore do not give an accurate account of incidents. This is the most correct Sīrah available in the English language to our knowledge and contains many proofs in respect to the beliefs of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamāʿah regarding the Messenger of Allāh صلى الله عليه وسلم to which others object.
