Product Description

Review

....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.

This is a pretty nice and informative book. It's attempt to be neutral is not really possible in relation to the competing narratives of the shia and the sunni camps. I think it is much better to write something that actually says that there are competing narratives and lays out what both say. It actually makes for a more interesting and less decaffeinated version of history. In the end it felt like gas lighting the Shia complaint of abuses in the name of unity, which is not cool or very good history. Still, I enjoyed learning more about these people.

The engaging language and concise entries make it both an enjoyable an educational read. An excellent sequel to Michael Hart's The 100, this book is a must-have for every library and household. Both Muslims and non-Muslims can benefit from the diversity of the entries, which include the great scientist Jabir ibn Hayyan (known as Geber in the west) as well as the late Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali.

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!

This book is almost like a mini-encyclopedia on Islam. Covering more than 1400 years of history, the author has presented Islamic history and culture through 100 influential Muslim figures. The book begins with Prophet Muhammad and ends with Muhammad Ali, the great American sportsman and philantrophist.

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!
