English translation of a valuable work on the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad originally written in Urdu.
The first two volumes of the book were written in Urdu by the late Allama Shibli Nu'mani and the other volumes by his student Syed Sulaiman Nadwi.
None can deny that the life history of the Prophet Muhammad is an imperative need not only for the Muslims but for humanity at large. It is a necessity, not only religious or Islamic, but also literary, moral and cultural. It is a necessity that meets our interests both in this world and in the Hereafter.
Allama Shibli had earned great fame for this work. The biography was written in Urdu and a great need was being felt for rendering it into English. The translation by Mohd. Saeed Siddiqi is a very successful attempt. It is not only correct but couched in good English.
