Early Days

Darussalam is proud to present the abridged English translation of the classic work, Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah. This book is the first part from this enormous work. It starts by describing the beginning of creation — from the Throne and the Kursi, the Universe and all that is in it, such as the angels, the Jinn and humans. This book continues to early Prophet Adam (Aadam) upto Prophet Yunus/Younus (A).

Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End) by the renowned scholar Abu Al-Fida, 'Imad ad-Deen Isma'eel bin 'Umar bin Katheer (Imam Ibn Kathir), is considered one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history. A unique feature of the book is that it not only deals with past events, but also talks about future events mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) until the Day of Judgment.

Thulaathiyyaat from Musnad Imam Ahamd bin Hanbal - ثلاثيات مسند الامام أحمد بن حنبل رحمه الله

Muslim scholars, particularly hadeeth scholars, were keen on ahaadeeth with few narrators between the hadeeth reporter and the Prophet (S). In fact, Imaam Ahmad reported more than three hundred "thulaathiyyaat", ahaadeeth with only three narrators between him and the Prophet (S). These ahaadeeth were collected from al-Musnad by Shaikh Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Saalim as-Saffaareenee al-Hanbalee (Rahimahullah) in a separate book.

Miracles of the Qur'an - معجزات القرآن التي لا تتحدى

Although the Qur'an is not just a book of science, it clearly states a number of scientific truths that were uncovered only with the help of modern technology in the 20th century. How can we explain the numerous scientific facts mentioned in its verses over 1400 years ago?

Time after time, respected scientists and renowned experts from all over the world, upon studying the verses of the Qur'an (Quraan) have had no other choice but to acknowledge that there were no means of knowing these scientific facts 1400 years ago. The only way they could have reached us is through revelation: proving that the Qur'an is the word of God.

Islamic Guideline on Medicine

What is Islamic medicine? Is it medical knowledge that is completely subject to the will of Allah The Exalted, or is it the art of treatment adopted and followed by Muslims when the Muslims were at the peak of their development? Or is it the most modern medicine, guided by divine teachings and completely in accordance with them?

On the basis of Islamic teachings in light of the Qur'an and Sunnah, this book devises the following six basic categories for Islamic medicine:

  • Adhering to Islamic teachings and etiquette.
  • Adhering to logic in practicing medicine...

Scientific Miracles in the Oceans & Animals - الاعجاز العلمي في البحار والحيوانات

Water is the substance of life, the magic elixir without which life on this planet would be impossible.

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.

Scientific Wonders on the Earth & in Space - الاعجاز العلمي في الارض والفلك

Every Prophet had a miracle which he showed to his people and challenged them with. Some of the Prophets even had more than one sign as a definite proof that. they were sent by Allah; challenging their nations to bring anything similar to it if they denied it. Every sign given to any of the Prophets was exclusively meant for his people and when he died, his signs ceased to exist.

However, one such miraculous sign shall remain, complete and preserved with the command of Allah, until the Day of Resurrection. This miracle is the inimitable Qur'an, the everlasting Book of Allah given to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Anyone who lives after the death of this Prophet of Mercy will be able to see it, read it, and realize for themselves the truth that it contains.

The Eternal Guidance

God has created the whole universe and everything in it. Anything that is created has a beginning. Anything that has a beginning will one day have an end.

Human beings are the supreme of creation in the animal world. They are the most intelligent. Even so their knowledge is very limited and imperfect. They have no definite knowledge of the future and afterlife. Therefore human guidance for future and afterlife will be imperfect and unsuitable for the salvation of mankind. Only God has perfect knowledge. His guidance can only be perfect and acceptable.

There are thousands of religions. Many of them have a book of guidance. Many claim that their book of guidance is from God. How do we know? Attempt has been made to find out the true guidance of God, "The Eternal guidance".

The Rational Choice

We do not choose the family in which we are born. We are raised in the family of our birth and are given the belief that the religion of our family is the best. We believe it, follow it and die with it, not knowing much about other beliefs. God has perfect knowledge.

His guidance can only be perfect. So "read in the name of thy Lord who created you". Knowledge is power and helps us to make rational decisions. Choose wisely and do not fail. For, at the end, only the truth will prevail.
