Largest book on Prophet planned

Aug 23, 2011

JEDDAH: Plans are under way to publish literally the largest book on the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), which is expected to weigh 1,600 kg and contain 420 pages, each page with dimensions of four by five meters.

The book, according to Shams Arabic daily, is authored by Abdullah Al-Mosleh, secretary-general of the Organization for Scientific Miracles in the Holy Qur’an. It will be translated into four international languages and registered in the Guinness Book of Records. The main objective of the book is to promote the message of the Prophet and give a correct picture of his life and teachings. The work is important at a time when enemies of Islam have launched a strident campaign against the Prophet to tarnish his image.

“The book will contain minute details of the Prophet’s life. It will also contain 100 scientific facts about the Prophet, which are related to medicine, engineering and agriculture,” said Muhammad Al-Aulaqi, chairman of the Mashahid Group who had the idea behind the book.


أَنَّ رسول اللَّه صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم قال : "‏ الْمُسْلِمُ أَخُو الْمُسْلِمِ، لاَ يَظْلِمُهُ وَلاَ يُسْلِمُهُ، وَمَنْ كَانَ فِي حَاجَةِ أَخِيهِ كَانَ اللَّهُ فِي حَاجَتِهِ، وَمَنْ فَرَّجَ عَنْ مُسْلِمٍ كُرْبَةً فَرَّجَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ كُرْبَةً مِنْ كُرُبَاتِ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ، وَمَنْ سَتَرَ مُسْلِمًا سَتَرَهُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ‏"‏‏
God's Messenger said, "A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection." (Bukhari, Oppressions, 3)
