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.

The Prophet (SAW) said 'The Religion of Islam is Easy. No one ever Made it difficult without it becoming too much for him. So avoid extremes and strike a balance, do best you can (in carrying out your religious observances) and be cheerful;  and seek Allah's Help (through Prayer) in the Morning, Evening and Part of the night
 (Bukhari)[From The Prophet's Garden Compiled by  D'Oyen and Chachi ]
