THE LIVES OF THE PROPHETS
THE LIVES OF THE PROPHETS Leila `Azzam
The elegance of the writing makes The Lives of the Prophets a memorable book. The author bases the stories of the prophets, from Adam’s expulsion from paradise to Noah and his Ark, the trials of Job and Joseph’s dream, as well as the stories of all the other prophets culminating in Muhammad’s ascent into Heaven, on traditional Islamic sources and in particular on what is revealed in the Qur’an. Though written primarily for children between the ages of 9 & 12, the power and beauty of each story cannot fail to entrance and move readers of all ages, making The Lives of the Prophets a book not just to be read but to be treasured.
