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 Mawlidgatherings 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.

As someone who doesn't have the best knowledge in islamic history this book really shows you the trials and tribulations that our Prophet (saw) faced during His life, most of which reduced me to tears and instilled a certain amount of love for RasulAllah (saw) that has only led me to further my quest for knowledge inshaAllah

Alhamdulillah, I have read many books on Seerah but this book gave me shivers and also tears in various parts! Some of happiness and some of sadness. I will be using this book in my speeches which I do very frequently at my local Mosque and around the country
JazakaAllah to Al Ihya and Moulana M Husein Qadri as well as Moulana Kalim Azhari for providing this beautiful Kitab to me
