Muhammad Asad (Leopold Weiss) was born in the city of Lwów, eastern Galicia, on July 2, 1900.His birth was during the era of the Austrian Empire, which straddled Europe. There is no doubt that the vast area of the Austrian Empire, and its distinctive location on part of the Danube River, made it a meeting place for the religions, languages, and cultures of many peoples who inhabited that region and its surroundings. This imperial climate had an impact on the formation of Muhammad Asad’s cultural, intellectual, and linguistic background, as he mastered many languages, such as: German and Polish.Perhaps Muhammad Asad's (Leopold Weiss) openness to cultures and his deep understanding of the Jewish and Christian religions were a product of that environment in which he lived.Sheikh Muhammad Asad is a unique example of a diligent Islamic preacher who devoted his life to calling people to Islam, and made his mission in life upholding the word of truth and empowering Islam in the hearts of his followers before his lands and homelands. His sincerity in his call and his diligence in his message had the greatest impact on many people rallying around him and joining under the banner of his thought, which transcended the borders of nationalism and the scope of the place, to become a global shepherd of Islam everywhere. Rather, his works and writings went beyond the borders of the place and beyond the confines of the language, and were translated into most languages. The world, to remain a renewed source for his intellectual and advocacy giving, which has gone beyond the stage of verbal advocacy and intellectual theorizing to the field of practical application of Islamic legislation in governance, leadership, and dealings. One of the greatest blessings of God upon His servant is the blessing of openness to Islam, as God Almighty selects for this blessing (i.e., faith) whomever He wills. Of His servants, so He made it easy for him and opened his heart to accept it, made it easy for him, and made it easy for him with his grace, generosity, and kindness to him, and benevolence towards him. Then Islam would be enlightened in his heart, and it would shine through it and his chest would expand for it.
