Some information about the "Sealed Nectar" and its author
The Sealed Nectar is the French translation of the Arabic-language book "Ar-rahiqin makhtoum" by Sheikh Safiyu Ar-Rahman al-Mubârakfuri. An Indian scholar who taught for many years at the University of Medina in Saudi Arabia. His work was published in 1976. It is recognized as the most authentic book on the life of the Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings upon him) and was awarded a prize in 1979 by the World Islamic League.
In 1988, the University of Medina in Saudi Arabia opened a research department devoted to the biography of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The author is of course invited to work in this section.
We invite you to do more research on the brilliant career of the author who has done so much for Islam with his work. May Allah reward him and show him mercy.
Why is it important to learn the Sirah?
The sealed nectar, also known as the "Ultimate Jewel" of Prophethood, is essential in the life of a Muslim. Every soul will be questioned in his grave. He will be asked three of the following questions:
- Who is your Lord?
- Who is your Prophet?
- What is your religion?
Clearly, knowing the biography of God's Envoy is essential. To put into practice the first pillar of Islam, which is the negation of all divinity apart from Allah; that the word of the Prophet (sws) has pre-eminence over everything else through the recognition of his mission. This can only be achieved by loving the best of Men more than oneself. Then by learning about his life and the events that consolidated Islam. The Sealed Nectar is the most authentic book on this subject.
The biography of the Prophet of God (peace and blessings be upon him) in every detail
The Sealed Nectar is a book that provides a wealth of detail for those who have never read it. It explains how Revelation came about and the state of Arabia before the apogee of Islam. You will find, for example, at the heart of long and very well explained chapters:
- All the ancestors of the Prophet (sws) up to Ibrahim
- The nobility of his rank
- Life in Mecca at the beginning of Revelation
- The exodus to Abyssinia
- Emigration to Medina
- The various wars and expeditions (Badr, Ouhoud, Battle of the Ditch, Tabouk, Khaybar)
- The end of his life
We have therefore included these major stages in the life of the Envoy of God. However, we can't mention them all, as the book is so precise. We therefore invite all Muslims who were unable to leaf through it to study and meditate on it.
