A commentary on Abu Ishaq Ilbiri’s poem on the seeking of knowledge and its Mannerisms. It is said to have written this poem in response to a young man who had insulted him. Instead of replying in kind, which was the custom of poets, he decided to respond by providing the young man advice that would benefit him in this life and the next.
A good concise commentary with clear font in Arabic to read and English transliteration and translation. We appreciate the efforts made by the author and all involved in bringing this to the English speaking audiences.
A must read for all Muslims especially the youth . This is a didactic poem in which Abu ishaaq Al Biri touches on topics such as the inevitability of Death , the reality of this life we live, the benefits of knowledge and its realities and many more issues that each and every one of us face or will face. The author of the book translates and explains each line with great detail in English with references from the Quran and sunnah authenticating Al Biri’s words of advice. The quality of its cover and pages is of a very high standard .
