About The Book

This classical work by the great scholar Ibn Kathir shares detailed information about the lives of the Prophets mentioned by name in the Qur’an and Sunnah.

The stories inclusively present whatever is known about these blessed individuals: the circumstances of their spreading the message, the nations where they lived, how they were treated, their unique trials and the results of their teaching. As one reads through the accounts, Allah’s reasons for sending the Prophets are unveiled.

The distinct style of writing makes it easy for both adults and children to understand and makes a valuable addition to a Muslim family library.

This translation is different from many of the other available translations of Ibn Kathir's Stories of the Prophets because the Stories of the Prophets not mentioned in the Qur'an but only mentioned in Hadith (Sayings of the Prophet (SAW)) have also been translated. 

About The Author

Imam Ibn Kathir was Hafidh Abul Fida Ismail ibn Abi Hafs Shihabuddin Omar ibn Kathir ibn Daw ibn Kathir in Zar` the Quraishite – originally from Busra (Syria) – and raised in Damascus. He followed the Shafi`ee school of thought. 

Ibn Kathir was born in the year 701 AH in an area called Majdal, near Busra, west of Damascus. His father died when he was only four years old and was taken in by his brother and moved to Damascus in 706. 

Here, he learned from great scholars such as Ibn Asakir, Ishaq ibn Yahya al-Amudi and the great Ibn Taymiyyah who was extremely close to him. He also studied under various other sheikhs who gave him permission in fiqh and Hadith. 

He made many academic contributions to Islamic sciences.

Al-Hafiz Ibn hajar Al-Asqalani said,”Ibn Kathir lost his sight just before his life ended. 

He died in Damascus in 774A.H. May Allah grant him Mercy and make him amongst the residents of Jannah (Heavenly Garden)

But whatever the situation may be, in the recollection of death there is reward and merit. For even the man engrossed in the world benefits from it by acquiring an aversion to this world, since it spoils his contentment and the fullness of his pleasure; and everything which spoils for man his pleasures and his appetites is one of the means of deliverance.  From :Al Ghazali on The Remembrance of Death & the Afterlife From Ihya Ilum Ud Din
