From the translator:
Muhammad: As If You Can See Him is author Â’id al-Qarni’s follow-up to his recent best-sellers Don’t Be Sad and You Can Be the Happiest Woman in the World. It is yet another uplifting spiritual journey that is aimed at inspiring readers to grow in their love for the greatest of all prophets: Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him).
Al-Qarni’s own personal devotion to the Prophet’s noble character makes for an inspiring read. In each chapter of this book, Shaykh al-Qarni discusses an individual characteristic of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) in depth, allowing for a focused understanding of his personality. Readers would do well to note that this book is not a biography, but rather a sincere tribute to the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him). It is not a book that should be studied or over-analyzed, but one that should be read with awe and a sincere attachment to the greatest of all of Allah’s created beings – our beloved Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him).
