Publisher's Summary

A complete authoritative book on the life of Prophet Muhammad PBUH by Sheikh Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarkpuri. The Sealed Nector was honoured by the World Muslim League as first prize winner book. Whoever wants to know the whole life style of the Prophet in detail must listen to this audio-book.

Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him, are severe against the disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (fore heads) from the traces of prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurah (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, and becomes thick and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers, that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (Paradise). (Al-Fath: 29)

The Prophet Muhammad (S) said: "The example of guidance and knowledge with which Allah has sent me is like abundant rain falling on the earth. Some of which was fertile soil that absorbed rain-water and brought forth vegetation and grass in abundance. (And) another portion of it was hard and held the rain-water and Allah benefited the people with it and they utilized it for drinking (making their animals drink from it) and to irrigate the land for cultivation. (And) a portion of it was barren which could neither hold the water nor bring forth vegetation (then that land gave no benefits). The first is the example of the person who comprehends Allah's Religion (Islam) and gets benefit (from the knowledge) which Allah (Azawajal) has revealed through me (the Prophet) and learns and then teaches it to others. The (last example is that of a) person who does not care for it and does not take Allah's Guidance revealed through me (he is like that barren land)." (Al-Mukarramah)

Could not listen

I found the narration and sound effects too distracting to be able to follow the story. I made several attempts to get through this but could not. Unfortunately, I will have to purchase the book and read it myself.

Skipping words every paragraph 32 pages in!

Can some please fix this problem? It should not be this way. 😖 If I was not following along with a book to hear proper pernunciation of the arabic name, this purchase would be a total waste.

Audio Damaged

What did you like best about The Sealed Nectar? What did you like least?

The book is great, and the narrator is terrific, but there are several parts where the recording is damaged. It is inexcusable that a great book and reading performance are WASTED by unprofessional audio editing. The audio must be re-edited or the book should be removed from Audible.

Narration is terrible.

The narration is is almost unbearable. The narrator sounds like a circus announcement. I want to ask him why he cannot just read the book normally but instead he reads with great emphasis on every other word and it sounds terrible. I think it should be redone.

Very Concise and Accurate

I have been studying Islam and specifically Prophet Muhammad (SAW) for a while now and I must say this is my favorite book which I also own in print and electronic versions as well. I loved listening to the book however, there are sections throughout the book that is defective as it slows and the voice of the narrator becomes demonic like and I had to skip those sections (hence my 2 stars for performance) but since I have the print version I can refer to my books. The book is a very detailed account of the Prophet's (SAW) life and gives an in-depth account of the rise of Islam. I recommend it for everyone but this is a book all Muslims must read.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is great, but the narration is horrible.

What other book might you compare The Sealed Nectar to and why?

Muhammad according to early source, it has a much better narration.

What didn’t you like about Bilal Abdul Kareem’s performance?

Narration just sounded like a person reading a book, and without any character.

Could you see The Sealed Nectar being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Heart touching

I loved it, a must listen for every muslim. There was a technical recording glitch where the audio was distorted for a couple of minutes. Seemed like it was slowed down. Other than that, everything else is perfect.

Very bad narration

Exceptional book.
Classic example of how “NOT TO NARRATE“ a book. Very poor narration. This should not qualify to be added to the collections.
A bad narrator could deprive people from a masterclass.

Terrible narration!

I wish I never downloaded this! A terrible narration of an otherwise wonderful book. Sounds like someone making an announcement for circus tickets instead of reading from a book. It's tiring to listen to. Unnecessary echo effect and monotonous recitation which emphasises every other word without it adding any value to the narration. He pronouncea the Arabic words correctly but lapses into American (Eye-raq and not Iraq). Just irritating and unlistenable. Wish I could ask for a refund!
