Visiting the Prophet: It's Virtues, Etiquettes & Stories from the Salaf
The first part of this volume, Visiting the Prophet (S), was excerpted from Manasik al-Hajj (The Rites of Hajj) by the gnostic and lover of the Prophet (S), Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin. The second part of this volume, The Virtues of Medina Munawarra & Masjid al-Nabawi (S), comprises 40 Hadith compiled by one of the last judges of the Ottoman Empire and the erudite scholar, Shaykh Yusuf al-Nabahani (may Allah be well-pleased with both of our authors). It is an excerpt from his book 40 Forty-Hadith Collections, which covers a broad range of important topics, this being the translation of the 24th collection. And last but not least, a Commentary on the Blessed Names of Medina Munawara has been presented as an appendix, because as the Arab adage has it: the multitude of names for a thing indicates its importance, and nothing is more dear to the heart of a Muslim than Medina.
The intention behind placing Shaykh Abdullah Sirajuddin’s book Visiting the Prophet (Ziyarat al-Mustafa s.a.w.) before The Virtues of Medina Munawarra was to focus the heart of the reader onto the greatest priority, and ultimate objective of his trip to Medina Munawwara: the Prophet (S) himself.
