[E-Book] The History of the Khalifahs- Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti


This is a new translation of the chapters on al-Khulafa’ar- Rashidun from as-Suyuti’s Tarikh al-Khulafa’. These chapters shine with a genuine light. I have continued beyond the first four khulafa’to include al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, because he was the fifth of the khulafa’ and he legitimately transferred the Khilafah to Muawiyah, may Allah be pleased with him.

 
The translation lacks the majority of references to the books which are the sources of the hadith quoted, because whoever is interested find the Arabic text easily available.

 
Furthermore the translation stays as close as possible to the original Arabic at the risk of a slight awkwardness in the English. Where necessary I have added within parentheses whatever seemed necessary for an understanding of the book.

 
The history outlined in these pages is further illuminated by a work which is even greater than it, but is itself an exposition that assumes a knowledge of what is in these pages, that is al-Awasim min al-Qawasim (‘Defence Against Disaster’) by Qadi Abu Bakr ibn al-Arabi, may Allah show him mercy Whereas as-Suyuti gives most authentic traditions relating to these khilafahs, Qadi Abu bakr lays bare the real significance of many of the events which as-Suyuti so expertly relates.

[PDF]: A Glimpse at the Way Of the Companions


This is the first treatise in a series regarding the Methodology of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions (may Allaah The Most High be pleased with them). It is the Methodology that was implemented by the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and adhered to by the best of generations (the Companions), giving them success in this world and ultimate success in the Hereafter. The series is entitled Tasfiyah Wat Tarbiyah which are the two main instruments of this Prophetic Methodology that can be used to help us to remain firmly established upon the Deen of Islam.
This treatise was written by Shaykh Abdul-Qaadir in response to the numerous questions that were posed to him and the general confusion concerning this important matter. In compiling this treatise the Shaykh relied upon classical works, due to the importance of returning to the understanding of the early scholars in this Ummah.
The treatise has been translated in an attempt to remove the confusion surrounding this crucial subject, concerning the methodology adopted by the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions (radiyallaahu ’anhum), in establishing Islaam as a way of life.
Every Muslim desiring to return to Islaam in its true sense, must grasp what the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions were upon, in all aspects of life. Only then can we move further towards establishing Islaam as our way of life.

 

This treatise highlights the main principles governing the correct understanding of this topic following the way of the early scholars in clarifying and expounding the Prophetic Methodology.
The treatise has been abridged in order to remove some of unnecessary technical terms, and also wherever necessary, clarification of some terms and points have been included. A glossary has also been added to assist the reader.
