The Heavens – Compiling the words of Muhammad is a primary concern for scholars over the 14 centuries after his death, which led to many compilations. Of the legal-grounded collections which sought to instruct the people in their practices of religious law and the practice of ritual worship, one that is notable is Light in the Heavens ( Kitab al-Shihab) by al-Qadi al Quda’i, a Shafi’ judge from the Fatimid court in Egypt. The general concept behind the collection is uniquely ethical and pragmatic and provides lessons for human rights and practical knowledge with universal appeal.
The Heavens – Since North Africa to India, generations have utilized “Light in the Sky” as a textbook for both children and adults. Many of its 1200 verses are well-known to people from a variety of ethnicities and denominations. For Muslims, who consider Muhammad’s teachings to be the source of wisdom as well as the source of direction in all things ordinary and extraordinary, these sayings give a glimpse of the visionary mind that was the vision of one of the more powerful people to ever walk the Earth.
