Book Review

If you are looking for an interesting, inspiring, captivating, heart wrenching book that is well written and will make you want to better yourself after you read it then I definitely recommend this one. 
Well actually even if you are not looking for a book with the above qualities or even if you not looking to read at all, I still highly recommend that you get a copy of and read this book. 

Book Title:
Hadhrat Maulana Husain Ahmed Madani (Rahmatullahi’Alayh)
His Life and Mission..

This book captivated me completely.
Once I really started reading it I didn’t want to put it down, it had me amazed and in tears at several places.
Subhaan'Allaah the amount of test and difficulties Hadhrat Moulana endured and went through is astounding, and yet through all of it his Faith in Allaah never once wavered.
He dedicated his entire life for the Deen of Allaah.
His life was a reflection of the Sunnah of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم
You have to read the book to realise and understand what a personality Hadhrat Moulana Husain Ahmed رحمة الله عليه was.

The book has 318 pages and consists of 12 chapters.
Each chapter focuses on different aspects of Hadhrats life.
Below are a list of the chapters that are in the book.

Chapter 1:  Birth, Childhood and Family
Chapter 2: Education
Chapter 3: Madinah Munawwarah
Chapter 4: Bay'at and Sulook
Chapter 5: Family and children
Chapter 6: Teaching Career
Chapter 7: Character and attributes
Chapter 8: Differences of Opinion
Chapter 9: Politics
Chapter 10: Partition and India independence
Chapter 11: Demise
Chapter 12: Malfoozat (Advices)

Each chapter comprises of several different headings and goes into detail on the subject.

This book is easy to read and soak in, it doesn’t have words that go over your head and has been excellently compiled, Masha’Allaah.
(And I absolutely love the cover! It is so beautiful)

It has been compiled and published by the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Ta’limi board.

I'm not sure which book shops stock it but it is available from the Jamiatul Ulama KZN Ta’limi board.
I will post a picture of their details below so that you could contact them if you would like to purchase a copy (which I highly suggest you do, Inshaa’Allaah.) 

May Allaah make us amongst those who are close to Him and grant us the Tawfeeq to follow in the footsteps of our Akabireen (Pious Predecessors)… Aameen
