He was outstanding and unique in his commitment, sincerity, and whole-hearted support and assistance to the Prophet. Our past, present, and future are interconnected and interdependent. Therefore, knowing and understanding our history is not optional: it is essential. 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.
