Sheikh Ali M, As-Sallabi

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi is famous for his detailed books of history and biography that bring the past to life for modern readers. Dr. Sallabi was born in Libya in 1383 H/1963 CE, and earned a bachelor's degree at the Islamic University of Madinah, graduating first in his class. He completed his master's and doctorate degrees at Omdurman Islamic University in Sudan.

Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq

From the day he embraced Islam until the day he died, Abu Bakr As-Siddique (Radhi Allahu Anhu - May Allah be Pleased with Him) was the ideal Muslim, surpassing all other Companions in every sphere of life.

 

During the Prophet's lifetime, Abu Bakr was an exemplary soldier on the battlefield; upon the Prophet's death, Abu Bakr (R) remained steadfast and through the help of Allah, held this nation together. When others suggested keeping Usaamah's army back, Abu Bakr insisted - and correctly so - that the army should continue the mission which the Prophet (S) had in mind.

 

When people refused to pay Zakaat, and when the apostates threatened the stability of the Muslim nation, Abu Bakr was the one who remained firm and took decisive action against them. These are just some of the examples of Abu Bakr's many wonderful achievements throughout his life. I have endeavored to describe all of the above in a clear and organized manner. But more so than anything else, I have tried to show how Abu Bakr's methodology as a Muslim and as a ruler helped establish the foundations of a strong, stable, and prosperous country - one that began in Al-Madeenah, extended throughout the Arabian Peninsula, and then reached far-off lands outside of Arabia.

Uthman Ibn Affan

History of Islam – UTHMAN Ibn Affan (R) Rightly-Guided Khalifah

 

This is the third volume from this series, which deals with the life of ʻUthmān bin ʻAffān (عثمان بن عفان), the third of the four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. Uthman ibn Affan (R) was the most qualified to become the Caliph during his time; his claim to the caliphate was valid and his caliphate was legitimate. He led the people on the path of truth and ruled with justice, until he was martyred.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

This is the fourth volume from this series, which deals with the life of the last of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs, Ali ibn Abi Talib.

 

He was the first male to accept Islam at the young age of approximately nine years. He was the Prophet's cousin, the son of Abu Talib, the Prophets supportive and loving uncle who protected him during the worst trials of his early Prophethood.

 

Ali's devotion to the Prophet is best evidenced during the Hijrah (migration) when he acted as the Prophet's decoy in Makkah while the Prophet left under the cover of night and migrated to Madinah, accompanied by Abu Bakr. Darussalam presents the entire History of Islam to our youth in language that appeals to them, in a simple yet lucid manner. The first four volumes in this series explore Islamic history during the period of the first Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. Later volumes would be devoted to the History of Islam, down through the ages to modern times, inshaAllah. volumes would be devoted to the History of Islam, down through the ages to modern times, InshaAllah.

Salah ad-Deen al-Ayubi

As a soldier, a ruler, and a human being, Sultan Salahuddin Ayubi was a person of phenomenal attributes. The hero of hundreds of battles was the person who for 20 years braved the storm of the Crusaders and ultimately pushed them back. The world has hardly witnessed a more chivalrous and humane conqueror. His unmatchable battle tactics and gallantry as a soldier, heroic statesmanship and his strength of character won him the respect of even his foes. known for liberating the holy city of Jerusalem from the Crusaders.

 

The renowned contemporary Arab historian of Islam, Dr. Ali M. Sallabi has written a fascinating biography of a man who looms larger than life throughout history, yet who remains largely unknown to people outside of the Arab world.

 

Dr. Sallabi's meticulous research has effectively filled that gap in our knowledge. His work is more than just a biography, as the readers will see.

Umar bin Abd Al-Aziz

This book describes, among other things, the principles based upon which Umar ibn 'Abd Al-'Aziz governed the Muslims during his caliphate; among those principles were mutual consultation, justice, equality among people and honoring of freedoms. With the turn of every page, the reader will come to appreciate the fact that 'Umar was exceptional in his Faith, distinguished in his knowledge, profoundly wise in his thinking, remarkable in his eloquence, noble in his manners and great in the contribution he made to this Nation.

 

English readers have long been deprived of the life story of this outstanding Islamic hero and exemplar. While there are some short and scattered accounts about his general life, this is the first book to deal specifically with Umar bin `Abdul-Azeez's reforms, which is surprising given that he has been attributed the title of Mujaddid (reformer/reviver) within Islamic scholarship, in great detail.
