This is the fourth volume from this series, which deals with the life of the last of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs, AlÃ„Â« ibn AbÃ„Â« Ã¡Â¹Â¬Ã„Âlib (Ã˜Â¹Ã™â€žÃ™Å Ã˜Â¨Ã™â€ Ã˜Â£Ã˜Â¨Ã™Å Ã˜Â·Ã˜Â§Ã™â€žÃ˜Â¨). He was the first male to accept Islam at the young age of approximately nine years. He was the Prophet's cousin, the son of Abu Talib, the Prophet's supportive and loving uncle who protected him during the worst trials of his early Prophethood.
Ali's devotion to the Prophet is best evidenced during the Hijrah (migration) when he acted as the Prophet's decoy in Makkah while the Prophet left under the cover of night and migrated to Madinah, accompanied by Abu Bakr.
Darussalam presents the entire History of Islam to our youth in language that appeals to them, in a simple yet lucid manner. The first four volumes in this series explore Islamic history during the period of the first Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. Later volumes would be devoted to the History of Islam, down through the ages to modern times, insha'Allah.
