Translated into English by Aisha Bewley,

Description :

This is a translation of volume seven of Ibn Sa’d’s Kitab at-Tabaqat al-Kabir. The Tabaqat is a great store of information which gives the reader a vivid taste and feel for the character of the people of Madina and their extraordinary personalities. 

This translation deals with the Companions, Tabi’un and subsequent generations of the people of knowledge in Basra, Baghdad, Khurasan, Syria and Egypt. It is of particular interest since it demonstrates the attitude and action of the Companions and the Tabi’un when confronted by the dangers of civil war. It is extremely important in the modern age as we can learn a great deal from how the early Muslims dealt with this trial.

He is Abu 'Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Sa'd, 'alayhir rahman, and is considered one of the greatest authorities on Islamic biography. His collection, the Kitab at-Tabaqat al-Kabir, is one of the most important and earliest surviving biographical collections of narrations.

Ibn Sa'd, may Allah be pleased with him, was born in 148H / 764CE in Basra, and died in 230h / 845. He moved to Baghdad where he studied under various people, especially Muhammad ibn 'Umar al-Waqidi. He also visited Kufa and Madina in the course of his quest for knowledge. Many authorities have testified to his reliability.
