The number of lives through which the children of Adam pass is five. The first life is before conception when Allah created Adam and set in his loins all his descendants. The second life is when a child is born until he dies and departs from the world. The third life from death until resurrection, the ‘intermediate realm’ [barzakh]. The fourth life begins at the Blast on the Horn for the Day of Resurrection and Judgement Day. The fifth life in Heaven or Hell.

Author: Imam Abdullah Alwi Alhaddad
Translator: Maqam Imam Alhaddad
Editor: Abdulkader Ali Esa Alhadad
Contributor: Ali Esa Abdulkader Alhadad and the Charity of Esa Abdulkader Ahmad Alhadad

The original Imam Abdullah Alwi Al-Haddad’s manuscripts in Arabic were recompiled into books by Habib Ali Esa Abdulkader Al-Haddad in the 1970s in two volumes. Subsequently, a team led by Habib Ali re-edited and reprinted them into a Collection [Silsilah] of eleven books. Over the years, various inspired parties translated, published and re-distributed them.

The Author, Imam Abdullah Alwi Al-Haddad, was born in Subair, a small suburb overside and east of Tarim, Hadhramaut, South Yemen, on the night 5 Safar 1044 after Hijrah (30 July 1634). He passed away on Tuesday, 7 Dzulqaedah 1132 Hijrah (9 September 1720) and was buried in a simple grave at the graveyard of Zanbal in Tarim. May Allah show mercy on him and reward him abundantly.

The Custodian or Maqam Imam Alhaddad is based in Hawi Tarim Hadramaut Yemen. The Charity of Esa Abdulkader Ahmad Alhadad supports the Maqam and managed the legacy of Imam Alhaddad by preserving his books and continuing with his teachings.

This translation of “ The Lives of Man ” features:

  • one of eleven books in the Imam Abdullah Alwi Alhaddad collection called Silsilah of Imam Alhaddad from the original Arabic Manuscript belonging to the Custodian or Maqam of Imam Alhaddad, collected and preserved by his descendant Ali Esa Abdulkader Alhadad in 1971.
  • the original Arabic Text for Quranic Verses, the Hadith of the Prophet (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him), litanies, invocations, and routine remembrance.
  • a biography of the Author Imam Abdullah Alhaddad.
