This is the fourth book in studying the reign of the Rightly Guided Caliphs. It relates the life of the Leader of the Believers, `Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, from birth until his martyrdom.
The book relates with detail how he came to Islam and his most important actions in Makkah, his migration to Madinah, his life in Madinah, his campaigns and battles alongside the Messenger of Allah, his life during the era of Rightly Guided Caliphs and his swearing of allegiance and his period of Caliphate.
It also discusses the internal problems that `Ali faced during his reign. It goes on to mention the events that led to the Battle of the Camel, and how all the parties involved are free from any fault. Afterward, the events of the Battle of Siffeen are mentioned, along with the relationship between `Ali and Mu`aawiyah. The book sheds light on the fallacies that are held by some deviant groups about these events and their distortion of historical truths.
How much do we know about the Prophet’s (PBUH) companions? No doubt they were all of high moral character and played an instrumental role in the spread of Islam. There is so much we can learn from them just by studying their life.
While the study of the Seerah of the Companions (R.A) is part of the faith of Muslims, we must also understand that the history of Islam and histroy of the sahaba are two names for the same thing. The rise of Muslims all over the world from the beginning to this day has been achieved by following the lives of the Prophet (PBUH)’s Companions (R.A ) and making them role models. The Holy Quran says: Do not falter or grieve, for you will have the upper hand, if you are ˹true˺ believers. [آل عمران: 139]Buy Now Read More
