The Drink of the People of Purity in Prayers upon the Chosen Prophet is a succinct guidebook for seekers who wish to deepen their connection with the Prophet Muhammad (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and experience his centrality in attaining worldly and Afterworldly needs. This Drink, described by the author as the “Ascension Point” from which seekers rise to the Divine Presence, is none other than heartfelt prayers and salutations upon the Chief of Creation (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). This rare work, recently discovered and published in Arabic and now available in English, details a practical and spiritually effulgent way for seekers to seek intimacy and protection through the Prophet (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
