Description :

A milestone in the English literature concerning Islam, A History of the Prophets of Islam is the fruit of nearly ten years of scholarly research. In this unique two-volume work, the Qur'anic narratives concerning such prophets as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Lot, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, upon them be peace, and many others are supplemented with relevant ahadith and the interpretations of classical and contemporary scholars.

Hundreds of footnotes, occasional appendices and maps add detail and colour to the text. Written for readers of all faiths, this work reflects a traditional Islamic understanding of the Messengers of God and their role in shaping civilisation.
