About the Book:
Islam has been one of the most powerful religious, social and political forces in history. Over the last 1400 years, from origins in Arabia, a succession of Muslim polities and later empires expanded to control territories and peoples that ultimately stretched from southern France to East Africa and South-East Asia.

Yet many of the contributions of Muslim thinkers, scientists and theologians, not to mention rulers, statesmen and soldiers, have been occluded. This book rescues from oblivion and neglect some of these personalities and institutions while offering the reader a new narrative of this lost Islamic history. The Umayyads, Abbasids, and Ottomans feature in the story, as do Muslim Spain, the savannah kingdoms of West Africa and the Mughal Empire, along with the later European colonization of Muslim lands and the development of modern nation-states in the Muslim world.

Throughout, the impact of Islamic belief on scientific advancement, social structures, and cultural development is given due prominence, and the text is complemented by portraits of key personalities, inventions and little known historical nuggets. The history of Islam and of the world’s Muslims brings together diverse peoples, geographies and states, all interwoven into one narrative that begins with Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wassalum) and continues to this day.

    Great enrichment for the the mind, lots of accurate history, having almost all events that occurred in islam. Not a bore to read either. I would recommend for ages (by interest level) 11 onwards

    This book is a masterpiece on Islamic history. I first came across it when former PM Imran Khan recommended it on his social media, and I didn’t regret buying it. The book is precise, yet it covers nearly all major events in the Islamic history. Whereas most historical accounts of these events in the English language reach us through Western authors, this book summarizes the Islamic perspective beautifully. The writing has a smooth flow to it which keeps the reader engaged till the very last page.
