Darussalam is proud to present the abridged English translation of the classic work, Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah. This set contains all 7 books which have been translated so far. More parts are expected in future once they are traslated and printed. Al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End) by the renowned scholar Abu Al-Fida, ‘Imad ad-Deen Isma’eel bin ‘Umar bin Katheer (Imam Ibn Kathir), is considered one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic history. A unique feature of the book is that it not only deals with past events, but also talks about future events mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) until the Day of Judgment.
