The book 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. The book also recounts stories from the lives of the Prophets and their nations, up to the story of Prophet Yoonus Jonah.
In this book, the stories of the prophets have been compiled from 'Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah' The Beginning and the End which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature.
The stories of the prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by the Qur'anic Verses and the Sunnah traditions of the Prophet S. Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources.
Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Qur'an of his time. The systemic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which renders a historical style to the book. Reviews Review Policy. Published on.
