Virtue of Remaining Steadfast When Losing a Child
Imam Jalal al-Din Al-Suyuti
Translation of Fadl al-Jalad Inda Faqd Al-Walad
Few trials are as intense as the pain of losing a child: we are left bewildered, sometimes angry, and our most fundamental beliefs may be challenged. This book by the giant of Islamic scholarship, Imam al-Suyuti, is a compendium of consolations found in the earliest texts of Islam.
