This book highlights aspects of the lives of thirty Companions of the Prophet; some famous; others almost completely unknown.
Here the trials and triumphs of the early Muslims as individuals are well-portrayed. Their various paths to Islam - sometimes direct; sometimes long and tortuous; their devotion to the noble Prophet; their endeavours in peace time and their exploits in war - all serve to cast them in a heroic mould.
This is the first of two (formerly published as a series of three) books based on original Arabic sources and written in a style that is lively and often gripping. The lives of the Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet; may God bless him and grant him peace; is a rich storehouse of knowledge; guidance and inspiration.
The men and women whose stories are told here helped to lay the foundations of a new world order; and it is only fitting that they should be more widely known.
I looked up and down for this and finally managed to find it on your site.. and im so glad for the purchase. its a lovely book to share with your children, caters to slightly older kids like 9+.. but you can read it aloud to a younger audience with a explaining things here and there. brilliant purchase.
