Al-Shifa bi Ta'rif Huquq al-Mustafa, of Qadi 'Iyad (d. 544H / 1149CE) is
perhaps the most frequently used and commented upon handbook in which
the Prophet's life, his qualities and his miracles are described in
every detail. Generally known by its short title, Al-Shifa, this work
was so highly admired throughout the Muslim world that it soon acquired a
sanctity of its own for it is said: "If Al-Shifa is found in a house,
this house will not suffer any harm...when a sick person reads it or it
is recited to him, Allah will restore his health."
