“ ”

Absolutely amazing. Very well written and the best collection of details about the life of Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him). It's a delight to read about everything about this amazing personality at one place with good sources quoted everywhere. Jazak Allahu khayr to the writer for this effort.

“ It was okay?”

The book was rather short yet left me feeling like it was long. There were too many facts in the book that didn't have to do directly with Abu Bakr included so at times, I had to remind myself that this is a biography of him. For instance, at the end in a passing sentence, I found out that Abu Bakr was known for his work in genealogy. I want to know more about that! In my opinion, a biography should make you want to learn more about the person and by chapter 3, I didn't feel as excited. In fact, chapter 3 was the worst written chapter. "Abu Bakr was his kunyah. Do you know what a kunyah is?" - First page of Chapter 3 in this book. Asking a question mid-book that requires as a yes or no answer comes off as patronizing, as if I were being read to as a young child by a teacher. Perhaps this book was designed for kids under the age of 12, which is totally fine, but if that were the case, the sheer number of details given on warfare would have bored any child. I believe the facts were all accurate - just boring and not conveyed properly so this is why I am giving a 3/5 stars.
