‘Al-Bidayah wan-Nihaya’ is another masterpiece of Abu Al-Fida, Imad ad-Din Ismail bin Umar bin Kathir (Rahimullah Ta’ala) – next to the renowned Tafsir ibn Kathir.
It is considered to be one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history. A unique aspect of the book is that it not only deals with past events, but also speculates about future events mentioned by Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). The different volumes of the book deal with the beginning of creation and the sending of man upon the earth, the lives of the Prophets, and the times of Muhammad’s (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) companions up to the 8th century. The last volume records predictions of future events such as signs of the day of judgment.
