    I think that it is a joint work of mother and daughter; although only the mother, Hajjah Amina Adil (wife of Shaykh Nazim) has been credited as author

    i thought amina adil wrote the book and that she is wife of sh. nazim. but, i don't know too much about the family.

    The Life of the Prophet Muhammad (Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya) (Vols 1 to 4)
    by Hafiz ibn Kathir
    tr. Trevor le Gassick

    I have not read this book, but it seems to have been well produced. Some hadith narrations have apparently been dropped from the translation because the editors didn't deem them to be authentic enough. I'm not sure if this expurgation was motivated by salafis.

    No, Hajjah Naziha Adil is Shaykh Nazim's daughter and wife of Shaykh Hisham Kabbani.
