About This Book:
Few problems in life are as heartbreaking as the loss of a child. It leaves us feeling befuddled, frequently filled with rage, and can even cause us to rethink our most fundamental beliefs. "The Virtue of Remaining Steadfast When Losing a Child" is a compendium of solace and wisdom from the earliest Islamic teachings, many of which are credited to the Prophet Muhammad himself. This book provides comfort to individuals who have experienced this very excruciating suffering by demonstrating how it may be a source of pleasure and a means of becoming closer to the Most Merciful and His Blessed Prophet. It is not only a source of consolation, but also a useful resource for Imams, Hospital Workers, and those with professional duties.
Mufti Zaid Haspatel, the translator, has conducted significant study into the biography of Imam al-Suyuti, the original author of the book. Imam al-Suyuti experienced personal misfortunes, including the deaths of a son, a daughter, and his wife, which may have motivated him to compose this work. Additional comments, an index, and an introduction are included in this version. It is the first book on the subject written in English. The translator provides a profound grasp of the subject to the translation, having lived the suffering recounted in the book.
