Dear brother,

During the last millennium, many scholars have authored stories of Prophets under various captions but, unfortunately, they are more fiction than fact. I am not aware of any history book primarily based on the Authentic Qur’an.

The most popular of these conjecture-based books has been the Arabic "Qasas-ul-Anbia" (Stories of the Prophets) authored by Imam Imaduddin Abul-Fida Hafiz Ismail Ibn Kathir (d.1372 CE). These works are huge volumes comprising of fanciful ideas, very questionable Ahadith (Prophetic traditions), irrationalities and outright fabrications. The authors seldom quote their sources of information. The books have almost nothing to do with the authoritative Qur'an. I read some of these books in my teens and again many years later. They are only a few of the numerous books that thankfully kept me away from the fictitious, counterfeit, “Imamist” Mullah-made N2I – The Number Two Islam.

Please start reading.

Also, share interesting religious news from India.
