Publisher: Heritage Press (UK)
The present work is a translation of one of several sections of Imam Yūsuf al-Nabahānī’s acclaimed work on the Prophet’s ﷺ biography, characteristics and virtues (Allah bless him and give him peace), al-Anwār al-Muḥammadiyyah (The Muhammadan Lights). The author dedicated this section to an exhaustive treatment of the Qur’anic verses that specifically relate to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ): his exalted rank and special status, as well as those verses comprising an exhortation to obey him and emulate his sunnah and the proper manners towards him, and dispelling obscurities arising from otherwise ambiguous verses revealed concerning him (ﷺ), amongst other such matters.
Imam Yūsuf al-Nabahānī (d. 1350/1932) was a Shāfiʿī scholar, judge, Sufi, poet and a prolific author, having penned over fifty works in various Islamic disciplines, such as jurisprudence, theology, hadith, Prophetic biography, heresiology and Sufism. He served as Chief Judge of Jerusalem before being appointed Chief Justice of Beirut, where he remained for approximately twenty years.
