This book contains the wisdom and lessons to be learnt from the Prophets who are mentioned in the Qur’an and their lives since the first page of the history of Prophethood until the last.
In it you will find pearls of wisdom which have the ability to illuminate humanity and be a means for understanding the modern person’s convulsions of the spirit and their pain by relating the events that took place in the lives of the Prophets and their peoples.
The wisdom in these stories can be summarised as follows, in accordance with the purpose of the revelation of the Qur’an : ***
To prove the Prophethood of the Prophet Muhammad, salla Allahu alayhi wa Sallam
To show that all the Prophets spread the message of tawheed
To ensure that those it addresses are able to easily learn their lesson; ***
To awaken the hearts by encouraging people to admire righteous people and by
warning them against sinners. The result is that the servants of Allah take heed
from the difficulties and tribulations encountered by the prophets and show
patience and learn to be thankful for bounties.
We have also tried to illustrate how these harbingers of good news that came one after the other were responsible for preparing humanity for the arrival of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace
, who like a blessed flame of guidance was sent as a Mercy to all the Worlds, and was the Light of Existence, the Peak of Perfection of the Chain of Prophethood and the Secret of Creation.
The verses from the Qur’an and the hadith
of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace
, have been revised and reordered in accordance with the importance and flow of the matter and the stories that are told. At the end of every section there are short-answer questions, ‘fill in the gaps’ and ‘multiple choice’ questions which require explanation, interpretation, comparison, knowledge and attention. A table of answers has been included in the back of the book.
In choosing and preparing these questions we have taken into consideration the following aims: to increase the knowledge of the students and to motivate them in terms of their emotions, thoughts and behaviour; to encourage them to reflect upon the wisdom in each event; to help them make a connection with their world today; and to take heed from the events in the lives of the Prophets, upon them be peace
