Description from the publisher:
Tarikh al-Khulafa' is justly famous in Arabic; and rarely out of print. In the original it comprises the histories of all those who have been named as khulafa' right up to the age in which as-Suyuti himself lived. For this volume Ta-Ha follow up The Khalifahs who took the right way with this volume on the Umayyad Caliphs.
Abu'l-Fa?l cAbd ar-Ra?man Jalal ad-Din as-Suyu?i was born on the night of Saturday the 1st of Rajab 849 AH (3rd October 1445 CE.). As-Suyu?i mastered most of the traditional studies of his day; particularly those relating to knowledge of hadith; and was the author of more than five hundred works on Qur'an; Sunnah; hadith; fiqh; sirah; and medicine; etc. He is best remembered for his completion of the tafsir of Qur'an known as the Jalalayn; which had been left incomplete on the death of Jalal ad-Din al-Ma?alli. He died on Thursday the 18th of Jumada al-Ula; 911 AH (17th October 1505 CE.); may Allah have mercy upon him.
