Mawlid al-Nabhani: The Resplendent Jewels of the Birth of the Prophet of Intercession, peace be upon him, is a poem in celebration of the birth (mawlid) of the Prophet Muhammad authored by the luminary Muslim scholar Shaykh Yusuf ibn Isma’il al-Nabhani (1849-1932). Within the six chapters the author narrates poetry about the benefits and conduct of celebrating mawlid, the prophetic origins, lineage, parents, and his esteemed rank. He also expounds on the preternatural events in relation to the blessed pregnancy and birth of the best of creation.
This beautiful new hard back edition, with embossed metallic cover, has been made as a devotional easy-to-handle book with the specific intention of enabling recitation in the gatherings of remembrance and the mawlid. Easy to read, diacritically marked Arabic appears page by page with a facing English translation for the first time. This, along with a gold ribbon page marker, brief introduction and biographical sketch of the author makes this publication a wonderful addition to any collection. It is hoped that this production will revive love for the Prophet, peace be upon him, within his community as well as love for the author and the high level of Arabic poetry that is found within.
