About The Book
 
This is a translation of volume seven of Ibn Sa’d’s Kitab at-Tabaqat al-Kabir. The Tabaqat is a great store of information which gives the reader a vivid taste and feel for the character of the people of Madina and their extraordinary personalities.

This translation deals with the Companions, Tabi’un and subsequent generations of the people of knowledge in Basra, Baghdad, Khurasan, Syria and Egypt. It is of particular interest since it demonstrates the attitude and action of the Companions and the Tabi’un when confronted by the dangers of civil war. It is extremely important in the modern age as we can learn a great deal from how the early Muslims dealt with this trial.

 
 
 
Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn Sa'd is one of the earliest authorities on Muslim biography.
He was born in 168AH in Basra, and died in 230 AH (845) at the age of 62. He moved to Baghdad where he studied under various people, specially Muhammad ibn Umar al-Waqidi. He came to be known as the secretary of al-Waqidi because of his close connection to him.
He also visited Kufa and Madina in the course of his quest for Knowledge.
 
Authorities such as as Ibn Hajar, adh-Dhahabi, al-Khatib al-Baghdadi and Ibn Khallikan have testified to his reliability.
 
 
Aisha Abdurrahman at Tarjumana Bewley is one today’s most prolific translators of classical Arabic work into English. Aisha Bewley not only understands Arabic but she is also aware of the basic meanings and nature of teachings and history of Islam.

For more than twenty-five years she has been concerned with making the contents of many classical works in Arabic more Accessible to English-speaking readers for the first time, including Ash-Shifa of Qadi “Iyad.
