The History of the Khalifahs who took the Right Way
By: Suyuti, Jalaluddin (al-Suyuti) السيوطي, جلال الدين عبد الرحمنShare
Tarikh al-Kulafa' is justly famous in Arabic, and rarely out of print. In the original it comprises the histories of all those who have been named as kulafa right up to the age in which al-Suyuti himself lived. For this volume Ta-Ha have chosen the luminous chapters on 'Al-Khulafa al-Rashidun, or The Khalifahs who took the Right Way'. Al-Suyuti uses his vast knowledge of the hadith literature to present the most authentic traditions of these noble men, their governance, and their contributions to that body of practice known as the Sunnah. In this the third edition, we have restored al-Suyuti's own statement of the sources of each tradition.
