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.
This is the sixth book in the series. It focuses on the events that took place after the death of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, such as the choosing of Abu Bakr as the Caliph, the ghusl of the Prophet and his burial ﷺ.
The book then discusses the blessed and beautiful characteristics and merits of the Prophet and then goes on to describe the miracles that he performed ﷺ. Ibn Katheer then compares the miracles given to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ with those that were given to the other Prophets; he then shows that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ collectively received the same miracles that were granted to the other Prophets separately.
