About the Author

Ismail ibn Kathir (Arabic: , born c. 1300, died 1373) was a highly influential Sunni scholar of the Shafi'i school during the Mamluk rule of Syria, an expert on tafsir (Quranic exegesis) and faq h (jurisprudence) as well as a historian.His full name was Ab l-Fid Ism l ibn Umar ibn Ka r ( ), with the honorary title of Im d ad-D n "pillar of the faith". He was born in Mijdal, a village on the outskirts of the city of Busra, to the east of Damascus, Syria, in the about AH 701 (AD 1300/1)[citation needed]. He was taught by Ibn Taymiyya and Al-Dhahabi. Upon completion of his studies he obtained his first official appointment in 1341, when he joined an inquisitorial commission formed to determine certain questions of heresy.[citation needed] He married the daughter of Al-Mizzi, one of the foremost Syrian scholars of the period, which gave him access to the scholarly elite. In 1345 he was made preacher (khatib) at a newly-built mosque in Mizza, the home town of his father-in-law. In 1366, he rose to a professorial position at the Great Mosque of Damascus.[2] In later life, he became blind.[2] He attributes his blindness to working late at night on the Musnad of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal in an attempt to rearrange it topically rather than by narrator. He died in February 1373 (AH 774) in Damascus.

It arrived quickly and is a good quality book at a good price of £5. I'm just over halfway reading this book and it has been a lovely companion on my bus journeys to uni. I have learnt so much from the different stories of the prophets and their lives and love sharing the stories with family. It's really easy to understand and follow and the Qur'an verses complement the stories perfectly. It's just amazing- definitely you should buy this book!

The stories of the Prophets is a great book detailing the islamic views of the Prophets of Islam. Of course not all the Prophets stories are mentioned as there are many thousands of them, but the 25 mentioned in the Quran and a few others from the Hadiith are mentioned. I found it fascinating and very knowledgable. Great morals to learn from them all Subhanallah.

The book arrived on time but was not new and has stains on outer cover and inside pages. In order to hide the outer stains they put on a temporary cover which looks noting like in the pic. Disapointed with this as was expecting a new book for the price.
