by Dr. Mohammad Akram Nadwi
A travelogue written by the erudite hadith scholar Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi.
Written after his visit in Ramadan 2015, the book presents detailed accounts as he journeyed to Jerusalem and other cities including Hebron, Bethlehem and Jericho.
The blessed city of Jerusalem or in Arabic ‘al-Quds’ is one of the precious and dazzling jewels of human civilisation. That it occupies center stage in the history and narratives of many different people should come as no surprise. Its place in the Islamic world has been marked by tremendous trauma and pain in the past century, but its rank and position in the faith is no less central.
Dr. Mohammad Akram Nadwi is one of the leading Islamic scholars and thinkers. His research focused on the female scholars of Islam in the field of Hadith. His research spanned well over 15 years and resulted in the 57-volume work detailing and analyzing the biographies of over 9,000 female scholars from the time of Prophet Muhammad until modern times.
