Description from the publisher:
This book highlights aspects of the live of twenty Companions of the Prophet, some famous, others almost completely unknown. It is an inspiring book mainly for young people.
Here the trials and the triumphs of the early Muslims as individuals are well portrayed. Their various paths to Islam-sometimes direct, sometimes long and tortuous, their devotion to the noble Prophet, their endeavors in peace time and their exploits in war-all serve to cast them in a heroic mould.
This is the first of a series of three books based on original Arabic sources and written in a style that is lively and often gripping.
The lives of the Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet, peace be on him, is a rich storehouse of knowledge, guidance and inspiration. The men and women whose stories are told here helped to lay the foundations of a new world order, and it is only fitting that they should be more widely known.
