Lives of Man

Imam Abdallah al-Haddad, Mostafa al-Badawi (tr.)




A Guide to the Human States: Before Life, In the World, and After Death

Imam Abdullah ibn Alawi al-Haddad explains that every human being passes through these 'lives': before conception, life in the world, life in the grave, the Resurrection, and finally, the Garden or the Fire.
