Knowledge and Wisdom
Imam Abdallah al-Haddad, Mostafa al-Badawi
This volume contains 40 short essays that revolve around or touch upon the topic of the Hereafter, the ultimate destination of all people. With these essays, Imam al-Haddad offers pinpoint reminders about what the spiritual aspirant needs to focus on in the moments and days of his or her brief life - all in preparation for the Last Day and the eternal abode that follows. For the last two centuries, this book has been a popular spiritual treatise of Muslims throughout the Islamic world.
“Life is short, time is precious, death near, and the distance to travel great, while the moment of standing before God to count for everything, however insignificant, is daunting and hard,” writes Imam al-Haddad.
