About this title


"Glory be to Allah, the keys of Syria have been given to me," proclaimed Rasullah (pbuh) at a timewhen Muslims were facing complete destruction. Yet fourteen years later, Yazid bin Abi Sufyan (rad) marched into Caesarea, the last Roman stronghold of resistance in Syria. The Islamic Conquest of Syria, is a first complete English translation of Futuhusham, the night century Arabic classic detailing the Muslim advance in Syria. The English reader has, for the first time, the opportunity to read about the great epic struggle of a small ill-equipped band of Muslims that overthrew the superpower of their day. Events only briefly mentioned in other books are graphically described here, such as the Battle of Yarmuk, which changed the course of world history. The great personalities of early Islam are brought to life in a unique way. The strategies of Khalid bin al-Walid (rad), the piety of Abu Ubaydah al-Jarrah (rad), the bravery of Dirar al-Kindi (rad) and many more are vividly described. The text also sheds light on some lesser known aspects of Islamic history such as the significant role of women and Roman princes who had embraced Islam. Al Imam Al Waqidi, the great historian, was born at the beginning of 130 AH in al-Madinah, where he began his studies. He migrated to Iraq in 180 AH during the reign of Mamun ar-Rashid. There Yahya al-Barmaki welcomed him due to his great learning and he was included as one of Mamun elite. He was soon appointment as judge and held this post until his death in 207 A.H.
