This book is as much about Prophet Muhammad; peace and blessing be upon him; as it is about his grandsons; Hasan and Husayn; may Allah be pleased with them; for truly; they were inseparable. From the moment of their births; grandfather and grandsons delighted in each other's company on a daily basis; he finding rest and relaxation in their company, and they revelling in the unconditional love he lavished upon them.
The reader will gain a delightful insight into his special family relationship of a grandfather who dotes on his grandsons; but never neglects to teach and educate them in good manners; right living and a sincere concern for the afterlife. Charming cameos of life in the noble Prophet's family; of the boys riding horseback on their grandfather; being carried by him; playing games together; having family arguments; all contribute to the sense that this is a very normal; human family.
The story follows the two brothers into adulthood and pays tribute to the fine young men they become; thanks to the blessed Prophet's tutelage. Outstanding examples of what it means to be a true Muslim (Hasan; leader; preacher; peace-maker; a supreme example of morality; Husayn; principled; courageous and self-sacrificing) both brothers die as martyrs for Islam; and find their rewards as Leaders of the Youth in Paradise-to the great delight of their grandfather!
