RESEARCH STUDY OF ZAD AL-MA'AD
زاد المعاد کا تحقیقی مطالعہ
"Zad-ul-Ma'ad" is the most important book of Seerah by Allama Ibn Qayyim Jozi of the eighth century, a disciple of Shaykh-ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah. This book beautifully presents the biography of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) as a model of beauty. The whole biography has been analyzed in such a way that the practical model of biography in individual and collective life becomes clear. The Prophet's food and drink, the pattern of waking and sleeping, the pattern of prayers, pattern in family and family life, trade, medicine, the stages and method of struggle in the way of God, the method of Da'wah. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it is an encyclopedia. This book, in terms of its spirituality, usefulness and importance, is truly Zad-ul-Ma'ad, meaning the comfort of the Hereafter. Ibn al-Qayyim was a disciple of Imam Ibn Taymiyyah, so like his teacher in this book, he did not allow the love of the Prophet to contradict the spirit of Tawhid. Ibn al-Qayyim's book Zad al-Ma'ad on the Prophet's biography is a commendable deed.
