Description
Back of the Book

In Islamic History you will learn many interesting details about ten important events in the history of Islam. When and where were the first Islamic coins produced? Who was Al-Idrisi? We all know that Christopher Columbus sailed west from Europe in 1492CE, but why is this date so important in Islamic history?

This book will answer these question and many others. You will learn why Islamic history mat6ters and why all Muslims should actively read and treasure their rich, history.

This is the obverse of beautiful silver Sasanian drachm. These coins were in use in the Middle East during the time of the prophet Muhammad. The coin shows the Sasanian Persian emperor wearing a tiered crown. Old Persian or the pre-Islamic Pahlavi inscriptions fill the space either side of the emperor’s head.

Introduction

It is often said that “A nation remain alive when its culture and history remain alive. “Every nation, therefore, seeks to know and preserve its history and cultural legacy. Islamic history the story of events involving the lives of countless Muslims (and, of course, their interaction with non-Muslims too) over a period of more than 1400 years is a vast book with chapters describing sublime achievements as well as tragic failures.

The present work is a humble effort towards that aim. The lessons contained herein are intended mainly for young Muslims, especially those living in the West. Ten critical events in Islamic history have been presented chronologically. This book does not claim in any way to be a comprehensive survey of any particular time period of Islamic history. Event have been selected for their inherent overall importance and interest . The book ends arbitrarily with the fateful year 1492 CE. Undoubtedly, equally crucial historically important events could also have been identified in the past five hundred years.

Each chapter concludes with a set of comprehension question and a topic for discussion. These of course can be supplemented by teacher and /or parent. Historically-accurate, full-color illustrations attempt to contextualize the events discussed.

Finally, it is hoped that this will encourage all its readers to continue their study of Islamic history in greater depth in order to comprehend not only pour collective past, but also our future, insha’ Allah.

To you all, my warmest salaams.

Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
