Description :

Brief Lives of the Companions of Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ, deals with the Sahabah in Islamic History including the the First Four Caliphs. This book deals with the first generation of Muslim's who were inspired by the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. It is he who taught them a new vision of life, a new method of worship, new principles of war and peace, legislation and government.

The Companions (Sahabah) were a community (ummah) of dedicated people who made individual sacrifices to spread the message of their faith and to win friends. They were the personification of the ideals and realities of Islam. They were champions of the new faith which gradually reached across the globe. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, likened them to the radiant stars in heaven. Everyone of them was capable of guiding and leading the living generations of Muslims.

Muhammad Abdul Jabbar Beg was born in India on October 10, 1944, into a notable Muslim family. Beg started writing at an early age. He excelled academically at both Carmichael College (Rangpur) and Rajshahi University (BA Honours in History, 1965, MA in History, 1966).
