Kitab Ash-shifa bi tarif huqub al-Mustafa, (Healing by the recognition of the Rights of the Chosen One), of Qadi Iyad is perhaps the most frequently used and most commented upon handbook in which the Prophets life, his qualities and miracles are described in every detail. This book is highly admired throughout the Muslim world and is quick to acquaint the reader with the true stature of the Prophet saw.
Ash-Shifa gathers together all that is necessary to acquaint the reader with the true stature of the prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, with esteem and respect which is due to him, and with the verdict regarding anyone who dares not fulfill what his stature demands or who attempts to denigrate his supreme status - even by as much as a nail pairing.
