Seerat Sayyadina Ali
Succession to the Prophet... The murder of Uthman and the quest for

Imams... Moderation and extremism...
This book is far more than a biography, as it discusses major issues
that have their origins in the early decades of Islam, the repercussions
of which are still felt today.
In this book, Dr Sallabi guides the reader through a myriad of hadiths
and reports, peeling away the centuries-old layer of fabrications and
distortions through which hostile elements both in the Muslim world and
beyond sought to conceal the truth.
What emerges is a clear picture of the first great turmoil that engulfed
the Muslim world and how the noble companions and the members of his
family worked together to resolve these momentous issues, following the
guidance and teaching brought by the Messenger of Allah.
The true battle for hearts and minds is that which is raging in the
Muslim world today, where many vested interests are seeking to distort
the very self-image of the Muslims. It is high time for us to reclaim
our history and to stop letting others tell it for us. This book is of
great importance as it sets the record straight on a period of our
history that is of major significance. Every Muslim who cares about the
big issues faced by Islam and Muslims should read this book.
