The Lives of Man: Guide to the Human States – Before Life, in the World and After Death

by Abdallah Ibn Alawi Al-Haddad (Author), Mostafa Al-Badawi (Translator)
Published: 1st Jan 1991

A dramatic exposition of the classical Muslim division of human life into five stages: before conception, life in the world, life in the grave, the resurrection, and heaven or hell. Extensive Qur’anic and Hadith references explain the condition of the soul at each stage.

Imam ‘Abdallah al-Haddad is widely believed to have been the spiritual “renewer” of the 12th Islamic century. A direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammed, his sanctity and direct experience of God are clearly reflected in his writings, poetry, and books.
