The Best of Creation
A Glimpse of His Blessed Life
Sayyid Muḥammad ibn ʿAlawī al-Mālikī al-Ḥasanī

The first part deals with various aspects of the Prophet's life, such as his early years before receiving revelation, members of his family, his servants, miracles, signs of his prophethood, the weapons he used in battle, the beasts he rode, the clothes he wore and so forth. 

The second part is a chronological summary of the most important events to have taken place in his life.
