As we draw the Luminaries series to an end, we would like to thank everyone that has contributed.
Uniting bloggers from around the globe and delivering this series has been an enriching experience. Furthermore, we really appreciate all the support we received from our teachers and friends who helped promote the series. Allah reward you all abundantly!
The great Shāfi’ī scholar, historian and biographer Imām al-Sakhawi said,
“Whoever records a biography of a believer, it is as though he has brought him or her back to life.”
That was our intention in this series, to bring a little of their light into your lives. The entire series has been an honour, a privilege, and a blessing.

“Verily, God and His angels bless the Prophet: [hence,] O you who have attained to faith, bless him and give yourselves up [to his guidance] in utter self-surrender!” -— Qurʾān [33:56]
May we receive all the divine treasures we seek.
May our hearts be healed by divine presence within them.
May we become God-Conscious Muslims.
May our emigrations and pilgrimages to Him be sincere
May we be scientists in the art of being Muslims.
May we become a speck of what the Sahaaba and ahlul bayt were.
May we all be illuminated by Sayyidina Mohamed to reunite under the shade of the ghilans (acacia trees) of paradise.
May this Light that we have attempted to bring into your lives, find a dwelling in our hearts and homes. May it resonate in our daily actions and interactions with all.
“O Allāh, shower blessings, peace and mercy on our master and chief – Muḥammad, the best of creation, and his family, with every glance and every breath, as many times as the number of all things encompassed within the knowledge of Allāh.”
Peace and prayers,
