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.

Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
