Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by the renowned jurist of the fourteenth century, Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya, The Goodly Word is one of the most referred to works on prayer and the merits of prayer. Exclusively based on what the Prophet Muhammad himself said and did, this work includes prayers for every moment of the Muslims life. The Goodly Word is here presented in a bi-lingual edition so that the exact prayers of the Prophet can be read in the original Arabic. The translation is by two distinguished scholars who have also translated An-Nawawi's Forty Hadith and Forty Hadith Qudsi both published by the Islamic Texts Society.

Synopsis:

This bilingual Arabic-English edition serves as a worship aid that teaches the integration of prayer into every moment of life.
