Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi

The life of the first Rightly-Guided Caliph, Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq (may Allah be pleased with him) is a valuable roadmap for the Muslims of today. One of the first people to believe and embrace the Prophet's Message of Islam, Abu Bakr remained a close companion of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) throughout the Prophet's life. Appointed as the Prophet’s successor on the basis of consultation, Abu Bakr proved to be a great leader who, with Allah’s help, steered the Ummah through [...]

The life of the first Rightly-Guided Caliph, Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq (may Allah be pleased with him) is a valuable roadmap for the Muslims of today. One of the first people to believe and embrace the Prophet's Message of Islam, Abu Bakr remained a close companion of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) throughout the Prophet's life. Appointed as the Prophet’s successor on the basis of consultation, Abu Bakr proved to be a great leader who, with Allah’s help, steered the Ummah through difficult times. He faced numerous challenges within Arabia: some people apostatized, others refused to pay zakâh, and quite a few individuals emerged as false prophets, attracting many followers. Outside Arabia, the Persians and Byzantines keenly observed these developments, looking for an opportunity to crush the new state. Abu Bakr employed effective strategies to deal with these challenges and had remarkable success in doing so. Thus, he paved way for the Islamic conquests that toppled tyrants and carried the message of Islam to the entire world. His leadership should be a great source of inspiration for the Muslims today.

Al-Hasan Ibn 'Ali

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi

The life of al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Tâlib (may Allah be pleased with him), a grandson of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him), demonstrates that one should give the highest priority to the unity of the Muslim community. This is an important lesson for leaders at all levels and all times. Sometimes, it is essential to yield graciously and give up positions of status and authority for the greater good of the Ummah. By giving up the caliphate to Muâwiyah, al-Hasan (may Allah be [...]

The life of al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Tâlib (may Allah be pleased with him), a grandson of the Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him), demonstrates that one should give the highest priority to the unity of the Muslim community. This is an important lesson for leaders at all levels and all times. Sometimes, it is essential to yield graciously and give up positions of status and authority for the greater good of the Ummah. By giving up the caliphate to Muâwiyah, al-Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) clearly demonstrated that the differences among the Muslims were purely political. Even though the Muslims were fighting amongst themselves, they still regarded each other as brothers as sisters in faith. The life of al-Hasan (may Allah be pleased with him) sets an example for all Muslims, especially our Muslim leaders. It shows us how we should be willing to sacrifice the adornments of this transient world for the sake of Allah, the Exalted. [less]

Succession to the prophet... The murder of Uthman and the quest for justice... The Battle of the Camel... Ahl al-Bayt... Caliphs and Imams...

The Description of the Ten Companions Who were Given the Glad Tidings of Paradise.

New Hardback revised version of the famous book 'The Precious Pearls'.Paperback version available from the related items section.

Strong Muslims are capable of malting a choice of personality to mimic and remain steadfast on it, while the weak and ignorant are prone to get mislead. So, more than ever, it is incumbent upon us to talk to our youth, and even we adults should reflect on the greatness of our great Muslim heroes from our Islamic past, who built the most glorious and powerful civilization of all, who took a crass society of measly people and gave them Islam that dramatically improved their lives.

Darussalam is presenting this book to our youth hoping that they will find in it great examples, persons and models to follow and develop their own personalities accordingly.

Salah ad-Deen al-Ayubi Vol. 1

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi

The renowned contemporary Arab historian of Islam, Dr. Ali M. Sallâbi has written a fascinating biography of a man who looms larger than life throughout history, yet who remains largely unknown to people outside the Arab world. Dr. Sallâbi’s meticulous research has effectively filled that gap in our knowledge. His work is more than just biography, as the reader will see.

The renowned contemporary Arab historian of Islam, Dr. Ali M. Sallâbi has written a fascinating biography of a man who looms larger than life throughout history, yet who remains largely unknown to people outside the Arab world. Dr. Sallâbi’s meticulous research has effectively filled that gap in our knowledge. His work is more than just biography, as the reader will see. Volume One of Salâh ad-Deen al-Ayubi sets the stage for the advent of the Ayubids as Dr. Sallâbi describes vividly (and with his characteristic candour) the geopolitical scene upon which the first Crusades were acted out and their effects on the Muslim world in the twelfth century CE. The author discusses the events and introduces the many interesting personalities that played important parts in this real-life drama. Volume Two discusses the establishment of the Ayubid state, mentioning the origins of Salâh ad-Deen’s family, his birth and childhood; Dr. Sallâbi describes the character and ethics of Salâh ad-Deen: how he put an end to the Fatimid opposition and reorganised administrative affairs in Egypt; his efforts to revive the Sunnah in Egypt; his jihad against the Crusaders; his use of his literary skills in the service of Islam; and his keenness to unite the Muslim world. The author discusses the events and introduces the many other interesting personalities that played important parts in this crucial period in world history. Volume Three discusses the influencing factors and the ramifications of three crucial events in which Salâh ad-Deen played the leading role. Dr. Sallâbi also describes the many other interesting personalities that played important parts in this turbulent period in world history. In the words of Dr. Sallâbi, "The beauty of Islam became apparent to westerners from the conduct of Salâh ad-Deen in peace and in war, his respect for freedom of opinion and belief, and his adherence to lofty, humane values and the sublime teachings of Islam." This three-volume work has been made more useful to the reader in this English edition through the addition of a map, a timeline, a list of the dynasties of the period, and a comprehensive Glossary.

'Umar Ibn Al-Khattab Vol. 1

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi

The second caliph of Islam, ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb faced more struggles than any other Muslim leader in the early onset of Islam. His life began in a time of ignorance and ended during the Golden Age of Islam. Under his leadership, the Muslim world was witnessing some of its most notable conquests in the history of Islam. The strength and resilience of Islam’s leaders were being tested, and ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb’s true commitment to Allah shone to reveal an Islamic spirit unlike that [...]

The second caliph of Islam, ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb faced more struggles than any other Muslim leader in the early onset of Islam. His life began in a time of ignorance and ended during the Golden Age of Islam. Under his leadership, the Muslim world was witnessing some of its most notable conquests in the history of Islam. The strength and resilience of Islam’s leaders were being tested, and ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb’s true commitment to Allah shone to reveal an Islamic spirit unlike that found in any other Muslim leader. The standards by which he lived can teach us a lot about determination, hardship, and success. The two books which compose ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb: His Life and Times are sold together as a set. They belong in Part II of the Islamic History Series, as the second set of The Rightly Guided Caliphs. The Table of Contents for Volume 1 of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattâb: His Life and Times may be viewed via the 'View Table of Contents' link located above. This book was translated into English by Nasiruddin al-Khattab. From the Translator: For those who would be leaders, this book offers the model of an ideal Muslim leader, one who felt responsible before Allah for the well being of all those under his rule, including his troops, women, infants, non-Muslim subjects and even animals. ‘Umar was a 'hands on' leader who kept himself informed and consulted scholars and experts before every major decision. For the rest of us, this book offers a window into an exciting and important period of Islamic history, and it also reminds of an important lesson, that our strength comes not from wealth or money or status, but from our submission to Allah and our commitment to the path of Islam.

'Uthman Ibn 'Affan

Dr. Ali M. Sallabi

In today’s crisis-ridden world, amidst the numerous internal and external forces striking at the roots of Islam, Muslims are truly hard pressed to find strong and competent leaders. This has not always been the case, though. Examples of first-rate leaders are plentiful in Islamic history. The life and times of Uthmân ibn Affân, as detailed in this book by Dr. Ali M. Sallâbi, truly illustrate the characteristics of exemplary leaders along with the commendable qualities of those under them. [...]

In today’s crisis-ridden world, amidst the numerous internal and external forces striking at the roots of Islam, Muslims are truly hard pressed to find strong and competent leaders. This has not always been the case, though. Examples of first-rate leaders are plentiful in Islamic history. The life and times of Uthmân ibn Affân, as detailed in this book by Dr. Ali M. Sallâbi, truly illustrate the characteristics of exemplary leaders along with the commendable qualities of those under them. This account of how Uthmân ibn Affân, the third Rightly-Guided Caliph, expanded the Islamic state, compiled the Qur’an into a single edition, and, finally, dealt with the turmoil that engulfed the Ummah, makes for a very enlightening read. The author has also given us insight into the life of Dhun-Noorayn (Uthmân, the ‘Possessor of the Two Lights’) before he became the caliph. Readers discover his attachment to the Prophet (sa), his relationship with the Qur’an and his generous financial contributions towards the founding of the Islamic state. All in all, this book will prove to be a valuable resource on Islamic history. [less]

Women Around the Messenger

Muhammad 'Ali Qutb

From the very beginning, women entering the fold of Islam played an enviable prominent role, side by side with their male counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset: emancipating humanity—men and women—from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. The life sketches of these Women Around the Messenger show that the early female believers still serve as outstanding models for all Muslim women, calling for the revival of the valued and important position [...]

From the very beginning, women entering the fold of Islam played an enviable prominent role, side by side with their male counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset: emancipating humanity—men and women—from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. The life sketches of these Women Around the Messenger show that the early female believers still serve as outstanding models for all Muslim women, calling for the revival of the valued and important position of women in Islamic society once again. This work is meant to dispel any misconceptions by bringing into focus biographies of the first generation of Muslim women and the important roles they played in the overall development of their society, right from its beginning. This revised and annotated 2nd edition includes new explanatory footnotes and a foreword written by the translator. [less]
