Companions of the Prophet - Book One By Abdul Hamid Wahid From the rich Islamic heritage - the second of two volumes. Each volume consists of true and inspiring stories of thirty Companions including outstanding women. From the rich Islamic heritage. True and inspiring stories of sixty Companions including outstanding women These books provide a lively introduction to early Muslim history and inspiring models for Muslim values, attitudes and behaviour. Here the trials and triumphs of the early Muslims as individual men and women are well-portrayed. Their various paths to Islam - sometimes direct, sometimes long and tortuous, their devotion to the noble Prophet, their hope in God and in the life to come, their endeavours in peace and in times of hardship and struggle - all serve to cast them in a heroic mould. The Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet helped to lay the foundations of a new world order and it is fitting that they should be more widely known. These two books are based on original Arabic sources and contemporary writing on early Muslim history.
