....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.

Even better than this is the author's second book, The Muslim Heritage of Bengal.
If only this book was available during my days at school!
The author had to read extensively to write a book like this; a quick browse through the book proves this. I also found it to be balanced in its treatment of each personality, well-written and highly readable.
Covering so many influential personalities who lived during more than 1400 years of history is never an easy task, but the young author and researcher has clearly done a tremendous job and he deserves much credit.
I have not come across another book like this, certainly not in English. This is a much-needed and long overdue work. I hope that this book inspires other Muslims to write similar biographical works in the future.
Highly recommended reading for Muslims and non-Muslims!
