Praise be to Allah, and blessings and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and companions.

Dear reader;
The blessing of Islam is among the greatest favours Allah blessed us with. It is the religion of human nature and moderation, a comprehensive and complete faith advocating knowledge and good morals, suitable for people everywhere and at all times. It is a religion of ease and mercy, which has solutions for every problem.

How seriously we need , at the present time in particular, to clarify the characteristics and merits of this religion to the entire world and to demonstrate the true and radiant embodiment of Islam.

The guidance of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is the practical application of this faith. It consolidates all the characteristics that make Islam easy to embrace and practice, for it includes all aspects of life, whether religious, practical, ethical, material or spiritual.

This book contains selections from the scholarly work by Imam Ibn al-Qayyim, "Zadul-Ma`ad", which is considered one of the best books describing the guidance of the Prophet (Peace be upon him).

The aim is to focus on all aspects of his life as an example to be followed.

May Allah grant us acceptance and bless this effort.
