Description from the publisher:
History is the branch of knowledge that helps us to dig into the past. We learn about the lives of great men and significant events. Muslims stand ahead of other people in that they have recorded and preserved their history meticulously.
When western scholars were groping in the dark, Muslims delved into past, investigated and probed and were devoted to knowledge and learning. For instance Ibn Khuldun’s Muqaddama is that from which westerners have drawn copiously.
The History of Islam is an authentic book that traces Muslim history from its inception and leaves out no detail. Maulana Akbar Shah Khan Najeebabadi has written a comprehensive account and the translater has done full justice to the original work. With the publication of the translation, Muslims whose mother tongue is English or who are not well-versed with Urdu will gain a deep insight into their past. Historical events and persons are introduced to them, and they may counter the propaganda of non-Muslims confidently.
