This children's book on the life of the Prophet Muhammad is taken from traditional Muslim biographical literature, including hadith. Passages from the Qur'an are used throughout to reinforce the stories. The material is authentic and the style lively and attractive. Although the book has been written for children of 10 to 15 years of age, it can be usefully read by anyone as an introduction because of its completeness and clarity. There are 32 colour illustrations although there has been no attempt to portray either the Prophet or his Companions. The illustrations are representative of traditional Islamic life as lived in many Arab countries and portray scenes that have occurred in those countries for over a thousand years.

The ancient Jewish traditions here published have not been as well known as they deserve to be. Eberhard Nestle in his Marginalien und Materialien, a work to which constant reference will be made in the following pages, spoke of the neglect of this little collection of legends during “more than a century and a half”; this was in 1893. The half century which has elapsed since that date has seen a most important advance in the scientific study of the Lives, a gain which is largely the fruit of Nestle’s own labors, but is chiefly embodied in Theodor Schermann’s admirable collection and presentation of the extant material. All the hard work preliminary to an edition of the Greek text was thus accomplished.

The "Lives of the Prophets," a series of brief biographical sketches of the major and minor prophets of the Hebrew Bible, is a unique composition. Generally held to be a Jewish document from the end of the period of the Second Temple, the "Lives" offers an abundance of geographical, genealogical, and narrative detail which is not readily paralleled. This study provides the first thorough assessment of the work in nearly a century. A survey of the textual state of the composition and its reception is followed by a detailed examination of the literary structures which underlie the individual "vitae," It is argued that the "Lives" is an evolved, heavily redacted document whose present form cannot predate the fourth century C.E. Only within the context of early Byzantine Christian concerns - holy men, sacred sites, and the veneration of the saints - does the "Lives of the Prophets" become a comprehensible and vital text.

In every era numerous authors have written books of various sizes on the seerah (life) of Nabi [PBUH]. This service is still continuing and an assortment of gems will continue to be discovered from this vast ocean. There is no doubt that this insignificant individual does not possess the expertise required for this field. However, time and again this idea had surfaced that something should be written on this sacred topic regardless of the result with the hope that it may be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Thus, I undertook the task of compiling this small book by extracting different aspects from the various books authored on seerah. I have taken special care to ensure that the language is of an understandable and simple level. May Allah Ta'ala crown this effort with His acceptance and allow it to be beneficial for one and all. May it also be a means of my salvation in the hereafter. Hadhrat Moulana Siddeeq Ahmad Baandwi Saheb [R.A.]

The Paperback BOOK is the Best Book of 2016! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- God made the mountains and the seas. He made all the animals. He made the heavens and the stars. He made the sun and the moon and He made the angels. Then Allah decided to make a man. He called this first man Adam. He taught him many things so that Adam had more knowledge than the angels. There was one Jinn, called Iblis, the Devil. Iblis tried to compare himself to Adam. He believed that he was more honorable than Adam. Therefore he abstained from prostrating even though Allah had commanded him to do so. Adam was surprised by this creature, Iblis who abhorred him without even knowing him and who imagined himself better than Adam without having proved that he was worthier. Allah gives His commissioned creatures' absolute freedom even to the extent that they can refuse His commands. Allah grants them the freedom of denial, disobedience, and even disagreement with Him. His kingdom will not diminish if the disbelievers do not believe in Him nor will it be extended if many people believe in Him.
