....it is rare to see a publication which includes personalities from both Shia and Sunni schools of thought which is so much in todays' turbulent world. This book, I believe will help bridge the gap between the divided Muslim communities and enrich our understanding of not only the historical but the contemporary history of the Muslim. --Ahmed J.Versi, Chief Editor, The Muslim News (London)
This book sheds light on the biographies of 100 eminent Muslims, including political leaders (caliphs, kings and emperors), scientists, theologians, jurists, philosophers and sufis. It deserves a wide readership. --Prof. Dr. M.A. Beg, distinguished Islamic historian and author of Essays on the Origin of Islamic Civilization.
