This is the fourth volume from this series, which deals with the life of the last of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs, Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib (علي بن أبي طالب). He was the first male to accept Islam at the young age of approximately nine years. He was the Prophet’s cousin, the son of Abu Talib, the Prophet’s supportive and loving uncle who protected him during the worst trials of his early Prophethood.
Ali’s devotion to the Prophet is best evidenced during the Hijrah (migration) when he acted as the Prophet’s decoy in Makkah while the Prophet left under the cover of night and migrated to Madinah, accompanied by Abu Bakr.
Darussalam presents the entire History of Islam to our youth in language that appeals to them, in a simple yet lucid manner. The first four volumes in this series explore Islamic history during the period of the first Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. Later volumes would be devoted to the History of Islam, down through the ages to modern times, insha’Allah.

Ali ibn Abi Taalib (R): The Last of the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs
This is the fourth book in studying the reign of the Rightly Guided Caliphs. It relates the life of the Leader of the Believers, ‘Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, from birth until his martyrdom.
The book relates with detail how he came to Islam and his most important actions in Makkah, his migration to Madinah, his life in Madinah, his campaigns and battles alongside the Messenger of Allah, his life during the era of Rightly Guided Caliphs and his swearing of allegiance and his period of Caliphate.
It also discusses the internal problems that ‘Ali faced during his reign. It goes on to mention the events that led to the Battle of the Camel, and how all the parties involved are free from any fault. Afterwards, the events of the Battle of Siffeen are mentioned, along with the relationship between ‘Ali and Mu’aawiyah. The book sheds light on the fallacies that are held by some deviant groups about these events and their distortion of historical truths.
This book tackles the issue of the interpretation of dreams in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, based on the Prophet’s hadeeth in which he said, “The dream of a Muslim is one of the forty-six parts of prophet hood.” In this book, the author provides a definition of the word ‘dream’, discusses the various types of dreams, mentions some dreams that were interpreted by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), etiquette to be observed by the person who has a dream and the person who interprets it, and provides the interpretation of a large number of dreams, among some other issues related to the subject.
The author is the well-known erudite scholar Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abd-Allah ibn Raashid al-Bakri (d. 736 AH/1336 CE). The English reader will definitely find this book highly interesting and thought-provoking.
Water is the substance of life, the magic elixir without which life on this planet would be impossible.
The Qur’an not only mentions that the creation of all living things began from water, it also talks about various phenomena related to water like the sending of rainfall, the layers of darkness and internal waves in the oceans, the different colors of the seas, cloud formation and the barrier between fresh water and saltwater.
Professor Schroeder one of the greatest oceanographers in West Germany used to say, “When science progresses, religion must inevitably retreat”. But when he heard the translation of the meanings of the verses of the Qur’an he was stunned and said, “These cannot be the words of a human being.”
Read on to find out about the astonishing scientific facts which came down to Arabs in the desert who did not know how to swim or sail in the seas and oceans or possess the sophisticated equipment to make such discoveries, discoveries that have left modern scientific researchers, oceanographers and experts speechless and in awe.
This book describes, among other things, the principles based upon which Umar ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz governed the Muslims during his caliphate; among those principles were mutual consultation, justice, equality among people and honoring of freedoms.
With the turn of every page, the reader will come to appreciate the fact that ‘Umar was exceptional in his Faith, distinguished in his knowledge, profoundly wise in his thinking, remarkable in his eloquence, noble in his manners and great in the contribution he made to this Nation.
English readers have long been deprived of the life story of this outstanding Islamic hero and exemplar. While there are some short and scattered accounts about his general life, this is the first book to deal specifically with Umar bin `Abdul-Azeez’s reforms, which is surprising given that he has been attributed the title of Mujaddid (reformer/reviver) within Islamic scholarship, in great detail.
