The Emissary Elect: A Concise Seerah of the Messenger of Allah
The Emissary Elect, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, is a translation of the Urdu work Rasul-Mukhtar, a concise Sirah (biography) of the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, highlighting the main events in his blessed life.
We hope when one has read this concise biography of the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, one will have the desire then to progress to a more detailed Sirah and read about him, in more depth. We advise that one reads Sirat al-Mustafa, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, by 'Allamah 'Abd al-Mustafa al-Azami, rahmatullahi 'alayhi, which is available in English entitled 'Muhammad, The Prophet of Islam, as many 'Siyar' are misinformative and therefore do not give an accurate account of incidents. This is the most correct Sirah available in the English language to our knowledge and contains many proofs in respect to the beliefs of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah regarding the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, to which others object.
It is therefore ideal as a teaching template that can be used in Madrasahs, as well as Mawlid gatherings as it is brief and can be covered in a short period of time, or simply as an introduction to the Messenger of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, for someone who is not familiar with his blessed life.
