Description from the publisher:
This unique work is especially needed in our times, when the noble Messenger of Islam is being attacked and slandered in popular media. It also serves as a reminder to the Muslim about the lofty status that Allah the Glorified and Exalted has given His Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam). Amongst other issues, the author propounds his (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) noble character, excellent appearance, bravery, compassion and knowledge of Allah.
In addition to this book, the book also covers the obligation of obedience to the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), his rights upon the Ummah and his advocacy for Tawheed. Lastly, this work gives a balanced view concerning love for the messenger, sending peace and blessings upon him, the mannerisms of sending peace and blessings and loving and respecting his Family.
From the Introduction:
“Indeed, the noble messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) has a great rank, and a high rank that noe from the creation has attained, for indeed he will be the leader of the children of Adam on the Day of Resurrection; Adam will be under his leadership. He has been bestowed ash-shafaa’atul-‘udhmaa (the great intercession) from which the Messengers (‘alayhimus-salaam) will excuse themselves and it has been singled out for him by Allah, and Allah has chosen him over the rest of the creation for it. Certainly, His Lord the Glorified and Exalted honored him with noble qualities that were not given to any of the Messengers before him, and all of them have a lofty station with Allah.” End of Shaykh Rabee’s words.
