By Muhammad ibn Isa at-Tirmidhi, Translated by Muhtar Holland, Fons Vitae Publishing, Paperback, 250 pages

The hadith of the Prophet provide the role model for all Muslims and give an example of how Quranic doctrine was actually to be lived in daily life.

This book belongs to the traditional genre of Islamic 'sacred history' sources known as seerah (biography). It contains a famous and a most indispensable collection of authentic traditions (ahadith), listing the main texts from which to glean the beautiful attributes, both moral and physical, of the Holy Prophet PBUH; attributes to which Muslims in all ages referred over and over, for the purposes of both meditation and edification.

At no time is this sacred collection of traditions more needed, as an object of knowledge and as food for thought, than in ours, when the excesses of worldly concerns and the superfluity of material distractions seem to make people forget that the greatest fruit of life, and thus of religious faith, is the beauty of the soul.

About the authors:

Muhammad ibn Isa at-Tirmidhi (824 – 8 October 892), was a Persian Islamic scholar and collector of Hadith who wrote al-Jami` as-Sahih (known as Jami` at-Tirmidhi), one of the six canonical Hadith compilations in Sunni Islam.

Muhtar Holland was born in 1935, in the ancient city of Durham in the North East of England. This statement may be considered anachronistic, however, since he did not bear the name Muhtar until 1969 when he was moved by powerful experiences in the latihan kejiwaan of Subud to embrace the religion of Islam.
