Save for the love of my relatives The Prophet's Household (Ahl al-Bayt) occupy a special position in Islam. God instructs His Messenger(s) in the Qur'an: 'Say, 'I do not ask you any reward for it except love of [my] relatives.' (42:23) In other words, the only reward the Prophet was told to ask in return for delivering the message of Islam was that the people show respect and affection for his relatives - his Ahl al-Bayt.
The Martyrdom of Lady Fatimah az-Zahra (peace be upon her) The death of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) affected her very much and she was very sad and grief-stricken and wept her heart out crying all the time. She was confronted, after the demise of her father, with the deprivement of the rightful claim of leadership of her husband Imam Ali, and the usurpation of her inheritance, the Fadak. Throughout her life, she never spoke to those who had oppressed her and deprived her of her rightful claims. She requested that her oppressors should be kept away even from attending her funeral. . .

The book starts with a look at the pre-Islamic world order. It deals with not only the events that occurred during the life of the Prophet, but also the philosophy and thinking behind the Prophet's actions. This is a great book to read for those interested in an introductory guide to the life of the Prophet.
This book not only presents an inspiring material but it is also based on authentic historical documents. One of its salient features is that the author has taken extreme care in narrating historical events and at the same time he has endeavoured as a research scholar, to approach them with an analytic mind also. Another interesting feature of this book is that it is absolutely free from heresies and concocted stories invented by vested interests. This book gives full details of the entire life of the Holy Prophet of Islam.
The Life Of Muhammad The Prophet
Author: S. Saeed Akhtar Rizvi
This book was first published in 1971 as part of the Islamic Correspondence Course run by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania. The idea behind writing this book was to satisfy the needs of our new generation - the youths and students, as well as recent converts, who are unable to study the scholastic books written by the Muslim scholars and whose only source of information seems to be the biased writings of orientalists presented as "objective" and "authentic" studies.
