'True Stories of Islam' is the authorised translation of Sachi Hikaayat, a unique corpus of Islamic stories in Urdu now translated to English. The fact that a considerable part of the Holy Qur'an is devoted to stories and parables is a testimony to how important they are as a means of propagation, education and enlightenment. Qur'anic stories are timeless.
Though an event may have taken place thousands of years ago, the lesson for us today in them is perfectly relevant. The location, language, custom and climate may be different, but the moral is up to date. And the same is applicable to the lessons and morals we learn from the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
The reader is taken on a journey through the Qur'an and Seerah of the Prophets and their faithful followers and will leave with a sense of being spiritually uplifted. It is an ideal companion for young and old alike.
About Volume II :
Four years on from the publication of the first volume of True Stories of Islam, this second authorised translation has been released by Abul Noor Publications.
True Stories of Islam Volume II is another segment from the mammoth Sachi Hikayaat. This second volume is split into two sections, and they are :
- The Ahl al-Bayt - The House of the Prophet,
- The Imams (founders) of the Four Madhhabs.
Like before, all stories are referenced and each story has a short summary or moral; which aims to highlight the main points. Written in clear and simple English, this book will be ideal for Muslims of all ages, from young Madrasa students to older readers.
The key feature of the book is a detailed account on the life and martyrdom of Sayyiduna Imam al-Husayn, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu. The Karbala story is a poignant one and the lessons of it are important not just for Muslims, but for all humanity.
