The Quenching Source on the Birth of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)

Author: Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari

The Quenching Source on the Birth of the Prophet (al-Mawrid al-rawi fi Mawlid al-Nabi) is a small work on the Prophetic Nativity — the Mawlid — written by the Afghan polymath Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari. The Quenching Source discusses the history and ruling on celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace), and presents a detailed account of the Prophet’s lineage, his parents, gestation, birth, early childhood, marriage, and prophetic mission. Included within this work are detailed footnotes from the translator discussing the faith of the Prophet’s parents, ‘Abdullah and Amina, and the faith of his grandfather ‘Abd al-Muttalib. The Quenching Source is an excellent resource for those looking to deepen their understanding of the Prophet’s immense rank, his family line, his miraculous birth, early life, and how the Mawlid has historically been celebrated throughout the Muslim world.

Conclusion

About the Author Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari

He is Shaykh ‘Ali b. Sultan Muhammad al-Qari, better known as Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari—“the reciter”—on account of his mastery of the variant Quranic readings (qira’at), and because he would write out one Quranic script (mushaf) each year in one of the readings and sell it and use the proceeds to provide for himself during his studies. He was born in Herat, Afghanistan, where he sought sacred knowledge as a young man. Thereafter, he traveled to Mecca and studied under some of the greatest luminaries of his time, including the great Shafi’i authority and hadith master Shaykh Ahmad b. Hajar al-Haytami and Qutb al-Din al-Hanafi.

   Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari was a master of hadith, law, theology, variant Quranic readings, and other sciences. His famous works include a commentary on Qadi ‘Iyad’s al-Shifa, a commentary on al-Tibrizi’s hadith compilation Mishkat al-masabih, a commentary on Imam al-Ghazali’s abridgement of his Ihya’ ‘ulum al-din, a three volume exegesis of the Quran, a commentary on Imam al-Jazari’s prayer manual al-Hisn al-hasin, a biography of Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, a compendium of hadith forgeries, a commentary on Imam Abu Hanifa’s theological tract al-Fiqh al-akbar, a commentary on the Burda Ode of Imam al-Busiri, a commentary on Imam al-Tirmidhi’s Shama’il, this work al-Mawrid al-rawi fi Mawlid al-Nabi, and several other works, many of which are still in manuscript form.
