In Book 9, the chapter on the mysteries of charity concludes and Chapter 71 on the mysteries of fasting commences. We learn about moonsighting for the month of Ramaḍān, when to finish the pre-dawn light meal, and how to stand the night in prayer.
A Divine name moved Ṣafīyah to visit Messenger of God in his retreat in the mosque, and it made him stand up when he conversed with her. ‘Then it removed him from the place of his sitting when he walked her home, and that is a kind of journey; no, rather it is a journey: the goodness of a man to his woman, honoring her sacredness and her right course’.
Size: 11x18.5cm. Spine width varies. Weight range: ~150-200grams.
