This is the sequel to Prophets in the Qur'an - Volume One. Whereas Volume One considers all the Prophets mentioned in the Qur'an from the first Prophet to appear on earth, sayyedina Adam up to` and including sayyedina Shu'aib, Volume Two considers all the Prophets mentioned in the Qur'an-from sayyedina Musa up to and including sayyedina 'Isa, the last Prophet to appear on earth before the coming of the Last Prophet, sayyedina Muhammad, may the blessings and peace of Allah be on him and on all the Prophets, and on all the sincere followers of all the Prophets. The significance of the Prophets whose lives are considered in Volume Two, is that probably more than half the world's population claims to be following one or another of them - the Jews claim to be following sayyedina 'Musa, the Christians claim to be following sayyedina 'Isa, and the Muslims claim to be following sayyedina Muhammad, may Allah bless them and grant them peace.

Descriptions of the sane events inevitably differ, depending on who is giving the description, and from which perspective; and interpretations of events are even more diverse, especially when they come from people who did not actually witness what happened.There are, however, two basic perspectives from which history can be (and in fact always has been) viewed – whether it is ancient or modern, long past or still in process of taking place, in the library or in the daily media – and these can be identified as the prophetic perspective and the kafir perspective. This book explores and analyses these two perspectives, and in so doing draws attention to what happens in life.
This book is an abridged translation of 'Uddat as-Sabirin wa dhakhirat ash-shakirin, a work which is well-known in the Arab world but which has been inaccessible to English-speaking Muslims until now. In this book, the author explains the Islamic concept of sabr (patience, fortitude) and its counterpart, shukr (gratitude), in a practical fashion which shows how these important spiritual values may be incorporated into everyday life. Although written over six centuries ago, Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah's words are still relevant -- perhaps more so than ever -- today.
