The work is a translation of the classical Arabic text al Nafaḥāt al-ʿiṭriyyah fī sīrah khayr al-bariyyah ﷺ, a celebrated primer on the prophetic biography.
The immense significance of knowing the life of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is observed in the Declaration of Faith, for one cannot enter Islam without attesting that, 'Muhammad ﷺ is the Messenger of Allah. And one cannot truly attest to that without knowing who Muhammad ﷺ was.
Nor can one accurately comprehend the Qur'an, for his life was the context of Revelation and one cannot claim to sincerely love him ﷺ without knowing his life and description, just as one cannot love one who he does now know.
The present work is a translation of the celebrated Arabic text Al-Nafahat al-Ithiriyah min Sirat al-Khayr al-Bariyyah (Fragrant Breezes from the Life of Muhammad ﷺ the Greatest of Creation), authored by the foremost Hadith authority of Greater Syria Shaykh Nur al-Din al-'Itr.

The work is a translation of the classical Arabic text al Nafaḥāt al-ʿiṭriyyah fī sīrah khayr al-bariyyah ﷺ, a celebrated primer on the prophetic biography, authored by the foremost Hadith authority of Greater Syria (Muḥaddith al-Shām) Shaykh Nūr al-Dīn ʿItr-may Allah preserve him.
