    JazakAllah Khayran
    rating Extraordinary perspective
    Customer R. on 04/01/2014 I just start this Book and it has giving me an extraordinary perspective of the life of some prophets [pbut] that I knew basically. Interesting facts, great investigation put it in a single book. Very good material for new Muslims!!! Once again, thank you Darussalam!!
    rating My oft-read book
    Customer R. on 03/29/2013 Second to the Quran, this is my oft-read book. Dar-us-Salam's publication and translation of 'Stories of the Prophets' is superb quality.
    rating Good read
    Customer R. on 03/26/2011 Good read
    rating Wonderful
    Customer R. on 03/26/2011 Wonderful book for those wanting to learn more about the Prophets [AS].
    rating Great but could be better
    Customer R. on 08/03/2010 Asalamu alaikum. Like others had mentioned already this book is great but it could be better. In the beginning of every chapter it writes all places where the prophet is mentioned and then again and again they repeat the same words where they are mentioned so the book becomes hard readable and it takes long time to read it. Wouldn't it be better to write just place where it's mentioned? For example: Prophet Isa is mentioned in: [here write all chapters and verses where he is mentioned]. After all it's a great book mashAllah.
    rating I LOVE this book
    Customer R. on 06/15/2010 MashaAllah I LOVE this book, I love the stories of the Prophets [as], hamdoulillah I found this book. It's complete and detailed.
    rating Amazing and great book
    Customer R. on 01/22/2009 Assalamu Alaikum, brothers and sisters. This is simply an amazing and great book for those who wish to learn the accurate stories of our Prophets [peace and blessings of Allah be upon them]. The book uses portions of the Quran and Ahadith to discuss issues surrounding the Prophets. Isra iliyat [Biblical stories] are frequently mentioned, but Ibn Kathir carefully describes the status of authenticity of most of them. It is a must buy for Muslims wishing to know our Prophets in further detail. Wassalamu Alaikum.
    rating Very informative
    Customer R. on 07/30/2008 Very informative book. My mother who is not Muslim enjoys reading this. She has learned things that she never knew being Christian.
    rating Must have
    Customer R. on 07/30/2008 Truly informative! You get to know so much about the Stories of previous Prophets. And you also get to learn so many good lessons from their lives. A must for every Islamic Library.
    rating Great translation
    Customer R. on 06/15/2008 This is a great translation of Ibn Kathir's work. Printing is good but I wish the paper had been slightly better quality. However, that s a personal preference and not worth taking a star off this product. It gives good references and is a good book to keep in your personal library and to teach with. I use this book as part of my curriculum for teaching.
    rating Excellent book
    Customer R. on 01/13/2008 An excellent book that covers so much information. I learned many new & interesting facts about previous prophets that I had no idea about. This is a must read book for everyone... even non-Muslims.

In this book, the stories of the prophets have been compiled from 'Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah' (The Beginning and the End) which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature. The stories of the prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by the Qur'anic Verses and the Sunnah (traditions) of the Prophet (S). Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources. Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Qur'an of his time. The systemic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which renders a historical style to the book.

Allah the Most Exalted says in the Qur'an:

  • "We are relating unto you the most beautiful of stories in that what We have revealed to you from the Qur'an, though before it you were from among those who were not aware of them." (12:3)
  • "We have indeed sent aforetime Messengers before you, of them there are some whose stories We have related to you, and whose stories We have not related to you..." (40:78)
  • "We relate to you the important news of their story in truth..." (18:13)
  • "And all that We relate to you of these stories of the Messengers, We strengthen with them your heart. Through them there come to you the truth as well as admonition and reminder to all those who believe." (11:120)
  • "There is, indeed, in their stories lessons for people endowed with understanding. It is not any invented tale, but a confirmation of what went before it, and a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy to the people who believe." (12:111)
  • "...so relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect." (7:176)
