This book focuses on the events that took place after the death of the
Messenger of Allah, such as the choosing of Abu Bakr as the Caliph, the
ghusl of the Prophet and his burial.
The book then discusses the blessed and beautiful characteristics and
merits of the Prophet and then goes on to describe the miracles that he
performed. Ibn Katheer than compares the miracles given to Prophet
Muhammad with those that were given to the other Prophets; he then shows
that Prophet Muhammad collectively received the same miracles that were
granted to the other Prophets separately.
AL-Bidayah wan Nihayah (The Beginning and The End), by the renowned
scholar Abu Al-Fida 'Imad ad-Deen Isma'eel bin 'Umar ibn Katheer, is
considered as one of the most authoritative sources on Islamic History.
