The Remedy of Souls demonstrates that Islam is exemplified by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), who delivered its final Message through the Holy Quran. The Prophet is the sole human teacher of Islam, as well as the embodiment of the Truth (Huqq) therein – this is the foundation of his infallibility, or Ismah.
The author discusses nineteen violations of this Ismah, which accuse the Prophet (PBUH) of acting against the Quran’s Message. These violations defame his character and belittle his role as the Messenger. It also opens the door to false prophets wishing to override the Messenger’s teachings by preaching their own version of the Message of Islam.
Some of these false teachings are still in circulation, and have been used by early political leaders; in exegeses of the Holy Quran; by compilers of Hadith (prophetic traditions); by scholars of Islamic jurisprudence; by scholars of Islamic creed; through leaders of political Islamist movements and, most shockingly but unsurprisingly, by the leaders of today’s violent extremism.
The Remedy of Souls is essential reading for Muslims who wish to heal and protect their souls and faith in Allah and His Messenger. It allows Muslims to defend themselves against false teachings and instead focus on the true Message. It is also extremely helpful for those who are concerned with the rise of Islamic extremism, as it provides valuable information on the true teachings of Islam which can be used to challenge such views.
