Description from the publisher:
Muslims have played a vital role in the progress and advancement of human civilization and culture. Many outstanding Muslims have made great achievements in different spheres of life.
"The Great Muslims" series has been created with a view to provide people in all walks of life, but especially the younger generation, a detailed knowledge of lives, characters, and achievements of these splendid heroes of Islam.
It has been long felt by literary circles that there is a dearth of good books in the English language on the history of Islam. We are therefore pleased to publish this series of the biographies of great Muslims.
Despite the difficulties of categorization, since many of the eminent personalities included on the series have made remarkable contributions in more than one sphere of life, each personality has been placed in a category to which he or she has made the most outstanding contribution. “The Great Muslims” have been categorized as: Great Men, Great Women, Reformers and Revolutionaries, Rulers and Statesmen, Generals and Conquerors, Sufis and Saints, Religious Teachers, Thinkers and Scientists, Poets and Writers, Artists and Musicians, Historians and Geographers.
Herewith is the series "Great Men : The Great Muslims," outlining the lives, in short, readable books, the four great caliphs of Islam (Hadhrats Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali), may Allah (swt) be pleased with them.
