About The Book
THE LIFE OF THE PROPHETS IN THE GRAVE (AS) is a brilliant volume for those who venerate Allah’s prophets, especially Allah’s Beloved, Muhammad (PBUH). Addressing the modern materialistic belief that is spreading about the Prophets being ‘dead and gone.’ Imam al-Suyuti answers a question in regards to the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) returning the salutations (salams) of those who send prayers and salutations (salat and salam) upon him, and in doing so. unpacks oceans of meaning for us and provides profound explanations and timeless insights into The Life of the Prophets in the Grave (AS).
Next, Shaykh Fakhruddin Owaisi’s treatise wonderfully compliments the topic at hand by providing simple, yet convincing proofs for The Life of the Prophets in the Grave (AS). Citing indisputable verses of the Quran, authentic hadiths, statements from the illustrious Salaf (Early Muslims), and answering baseless objections, followed by concise, contextualizing commentary, none will be beguiled about The Life of the Prophets in the Grave (AS) after reading this book except the willfully ignorant, or an indoctrinated sectarian content with following maverick opinions that are far from the trodden path of Islam.
