The Khulasa - A Summary of Abu Isa at-Tirmidhi's ash-Shama'il al-Muhammadiyyah

View sample pages here

This concise work is a summary of Imam Abu Isa al-Tirmidhi's Ash-Shamail
al-Muhammadiyya, a widely-acclaimed work which details different aspects of the
character and lifestyle of Allah's Messenger (May Allah bless him and grant him
peace). Based primarily on the Moroccan scholar Sheikh Muhammad Abd Hayy
al-Kattani's summary entitled Munyat al-Saa'il, this book beautifully
captures the essence of each chapter of the Shamail, allowing readers
to draw ever closer to Allahs Messenger (May Allah bless him and grant him
peace)  and study his salient features,
as though they are directly observing his blessed personage. In an era where
Muslims are being detached from Allahs Messenger (May Allah bless him and
grant him peace), the lifeline of a person's belief, it is hoped this summary
will help rekindle the flame of love for him and inspire readers to emulate his
blessed example. 

Abu Isa Muhammad ibn Isa ibn Sawra al-Tirmidhi was
born in 210 ah in Termez, Uzbekistan. He travelled far and wide in his pursuit
of the prophetic hadiths, and narrated from Imams al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud,
Qutayba ibn Sa'id and Muhammad ibn Bas-shar among many others. He was renowned
for his piety, abstinence and remarkable memory. Among his famous works are Ash-Shama'il
al-Muhammadiyya and Al-Jami' al-Kabir, commonly known as Sunan
al-Tirmidhi. Imam Abu Isa al-Tirmidhi passed away in 297 AH.

Sheikh Muhammad Abd al-Hayy al-Kattani was born in 1302 AH in Fez,
Morocco. He received his early education by his illustrious father, Sheikh Abd
al-Kabir al-Kattani, and his brother, Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abd al-Kabir, before
moving on to study under great scholars at the renowned institute of Kairouan.
He travelled across Morocco and beyond to Egypt, Syria and the Holy Lands,
where he benefited from the knowledge of many scholars. Towards the end of his
life, Sheikh Muhammad Abd al-Hayy experienced a number of difficulties from
the authorities in Morocco, forcing him to emigrate
to Nice, France, where he passed away in 1382 AH.English translation by Aisha Bewley. Edited and annotated by Javed Iqbal.
