Muhammad The Merciful
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the focus of love and devotion for one fifth
of humanity. Even outsiders cannot deny his political genius and great statesmanship
as the founder of a new world order and the stimulus for a succession of brilliant
and progressive civilisations. But a study of his life in these terms overlooks
arguably his most essential qualities – his mercy and benevolence.
Internationally renowned Islamic scholar, Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has produced
a work unrivalled in its comprehensive treatment of the subject matter, illustrating
the merciful character of the Prophet (sws) in all its aspects, towards humans and
more generally towards all beings.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has reproduced a solid corpus of references from the Qur’an,
along with reliable Hadith, specially selected for authenticity and relevance. All
sources are meticulously referenced in Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri’s characteristic style.
This book shows how in spite of immense hardships and painful ordeals, the mercy
and compassion of the Prophet (sws) remained to the fore, even towards those who
opposed and persecuted him.
For Muslims, this book will be a means to celebrate the magnanimous personality
of the Prophet (sws) and an incentive to instil the great qualities of the Prophet
(sws) in their own lives, while non-Muslims and academics will discover how these
qualities as described in the Islamic literature have caused the Prophet (sws) to
occupy his preeminent position in the religious consciousness of Muslims.
