Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq Alawi

Hardback, 388 pages


Salutations of the Prophetic Portrait for the Vision of the Beloved by Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq Alawi represents an extension to the established works of Shamail. It progresses the reader from the physical attributes of the Prophetﷺ, directing them from the outward attributes that are shared with the rest of mankind to the sublime spiritual degree of the Messenger of Allahﷺ. The noble author highlights the distinguishing features of the Prophet that make him superior and incomparable to the rest of creation, to increase the reader's veneration and respect for himﷺ. This acts as a foundation to the themes in the book, which aim to inspire the reader to develop an attachment and spiritual bond with the Prophetﷺ, leading to love, vision and eventually union with the Best of Mankindﷺ. The formulation and structure set in this work makes this book distinctive in the genre of Shama'il literature — it introduces the esoteric attributes of the Prophetﷺ.


The author, Shaykh Muhammad Sadiq Alawi, travelled the Path under the guidance of Qutb Habib Ahmad Mashhur bin Taha al-Haddad (1907–1995).
