The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said, 'I was sent from the best of generations of Ādam's progeny, generation after generation, until I reached my generation' (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī). Unsurprisingly, in light of this narration and numerous other evidences, the classical scholarly position has established the eternal salvation of the Prophet's parents [SAW] and his direct ancestors. These two treatises provide a concise, yet in-depth analysis of the methods used to prove this position. Imam Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūṭī (849-911 AH) was one of the most prolific and significant scholars of Islamic history, having authored around 600 works, many of which have retained a lofty position in the traditional syllabi of Islamic centres of learning. Shaykh Isḥāq ʿAzūz al-Makkī (1330-1415 AH) was a prominent Meccan scholar, who was involved in the administration of Islamic education for several decades in the Ḥijāz. Not only did he study with a number of leading scholars of his time, but he also wrote on a broad range of topics.
