"This compilation is an indisputable collection of the lofty mannerisms, traits and conduct of our beloved Prophet (peace and blessings upon him), which has been compiled from many reliable books of Hadeeth and Seerah (prophetic biographies).
The book is a priceless treasure for the 'seeker of the Sunnah' and one who is in love with the perfect lifestyle of Rasulullah (SallAllaahu 'alayhi wasallam).
The sublime Sunnah of Rasulullah (SallAllaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is sufficient for
the needs of all genuine seekers of the truth.
