This book is an authoritative source on a matter of central importance to everyone: the events of Akhir al-Zaman, the final period of this world's history. The work is by Imam Ibn Kathir, may Allah have mercy upon him, an eminent Muslim scholar, and is based entirely upon authentic texts. In many Ahadith, or Traditions, the Blessed Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, described the condition in which people would live in those times. Some of the developments foretold by the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, have already come to pass, such as the construction of high-rise buildings in the Middle East, also the frequent break-up of family ties and the almost universal presence of usury.
Numerous Ahadith of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, describe such matters as the Dajjal or Antichrist and other temptations and disasters to which mankind will be subjected to as the disintegration of the natural order of things accelerates. The Last Days are also marked by supernatural apparitions which will manifest on an awesome scale the power of Allah Almighty. For Muslims there can be no more urgent or momentous questions to confront than these. For non-Muslims seeking knowledge about the Islamic perspective, this book presents material of vital importance in a clear English translation.
Imam ibn Kathir:
The author of this book was one of the leading scholars of the 8th century of Islam (the 14th of the Christian era). Born in Busra, Syria, around the turn of that century, Isma'il Abu'I-Fadl `'Umar Ibn Kathir, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, was educated chiefly in Damascus, initially specialising in the study of Hadith. Ibn Kathir achieved prominence as a highly versatile scholar. He produced a tafsir (commentary) on the Holy Qur'an, as well as several noteworthy volumes in the field of Hadith and fiqh (jurisprudence). But Ibn Kathir, who died at Damascus in 774/1373, was also a historian. His treatise on the tarikh (history) of Islam, from which this book (The Beginning and The End - Al-Bidayah w'al-Nihayah) in your hands is an excerpt, extends to fourteen volumes in the printed edition.
