The History of The Four Caliphs

This book is a concise and immensely satisfying historical account of the first four caliphs of Islam, Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali, who because of their rectitude, became known as the “Rightly Guided Caliphs” (may Allah be pleased with them).

The author provides a clear and fast-paced account of the battles and internal struggles of the four caliphs, as well as that of the fifth, Hasan ibn Ali. He avoids long excursions into the technical intricacies and obscure historical detail found in longer books. However, he refreshingly puts forward a balanced and convincing analysis of the contentious issues involving the four caliphs, such as Ali ibn Abi Talibs .delay in giving the pledge, the insurgency against Uthman, the battles of the Camel and Siffin, and the disputes between Ali and Muawiya. (may Allah be pleased with them all).

The author’s analysis leaves the reader with a clear understanding and helps to increase the love and respect for the Prophet of Allah and his Companions.

This book will surely satisfy your curiosity about the immediate period after the Prophet’s (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) departure from this world. It will relieve your heart of any confusion you feel about the events of that time. This is a book written for readers of any age, hence an inspiring read for the young and old alike.

The Beauty of Prophet Muhammad

The Beauty of Prophet Muhammad

The Beauty of  Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace): As Reflected In Lectures on Sahih al-Bukhari.

A broad overview of the life of Allah’s Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), delivered in the form of lectures which capture the imagination. This translation allows the English-speaking audience to benefit from Shaykh al-Hadith Mawlana Yusuf Motala’s vast knowledge, spirituality and Islamic scholarship. It covers various aspects of the Noble Prophet’s (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) life whilst promoting the essential message of unity, peace, love and harmony.

To draw Muslims closer than ever before to Allah and His Messenger  (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), the shaykh, with perfect lucidity, conveys accounts, narratives and key moments of the life of the Noble Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and his Respected Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) as they appear in the Glorious Qur’an, Hadith and authentic works of history. It encompasses the many struggles he and his Companions endured for the perfection of humanity, illustrates the absolute restoration of the natural and moral order in a society that was blighted with ignorance (jahiliyyah), and describes the beautiful example which he practically demonstrated throughout his life.

The shaykh’s lectures offers guidance and inspiration to the readers, young and old. Throughout, it explains ways of how one may imbue the love of the Noble Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) in his heart and strike a heartfelt connection with his sublime person.

In summary, the book features detailed reflections of the day and night spent by the Noble Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and his Respected Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) as well as stories of individuals for whom this true love acted as a nourishment for the soul. For those consumed by his thoughts, it was unthinkable for them to part from it. Few books make a deeper impression, but this is certainly one of them. It has all the hallmarks of impelling the attention of readers irrespective of their backgrounds. It is without doubt a significant contribution to the works on the life of the Noble Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), despite the fact that the topic and materials are so fundamental.
