About the Book: “This ninth-century work brings out the heroic victory of Muslim army over Syria, which then included present-day Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and parts of Iraq and Turkey, under the military commandership of such legendary Muslim generals as Khalid ibn al-Walid and Abu ‘Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah, during the reign of the Caliph Abu Bakr.” (The Muslim World Book Review) This is the first complete English translation of Futuhusham, the ninth-century Arabic classic detailing the Muslim advance into Syria when a small band of faithful Muslims overthrew the superpower of their day. This inspiring epic describes the events in detail and brings to life the great personalities of Islam in a unique way.
