This book throws light into the lives of a hundred great men, the greatest of them being the Noble Prophet . It is a look into the ascetic aspects of their lives.
In whatever they did, they sought Allah. They stayed away from sin and did not love the world. However they did not practise monasticism.
These include Prophets, companions, the (tabi'oon) followers as well as those who followed them.
