Darussalam is proud to present the abridged english translation of Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End), by the renowned scholar Abu Al-Fida, ‘Imad ad-Deen Isma’eel bin ‘Umar bin Katheer (Ibn Kathir) consisting of 8 books. It is considered to be one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history. A unique feature of the book is that it not only deals with past events, but also talks about future events mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) until the Day of Judgment.
This is the sixth book of the series. It focusses exclusively on the battles, expeditions and Peace Treaties undertaken in the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. This volume contains a detailed account of the most momentous events from the Battle of Badr to the Battle of Mu’tah -that occurred to the Muslims under the leadership of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. Many of these events have become immortalized by the Noble Qur’an and continue to provide invaluable lessons to humanity, now and forever.
