About the Book:
This classical work by the great scholar Ibn Kathir shares detailed information about the lives of the Prophets mentioned by name in the Quran and Sunnah. The stories inclusively present whatever is known about these blessed individuals: the circumstances of their spreading the message, the nations where they lived, how they were treated, their unique trials and the results of their teaching. As one reads through the accounts, Allah’s reasons for sending the Prophets are unveiled. The distinct style of writing makes it easy for both adults and children to understand and makes a valuable addition to a Muslim family library.
This translation is different from many of the other available translations of Ibn Kathir’s Stories of the Prophets because the Stories of the Prophets not mentioned in the Qur’an but only mentioned in Hadith (Sayings of the Prophet (SAW) have also been translated.
