This is the obverse of beautiful silver Sasanian drachm. These coins were in use in the Middle East during the time of the prophet Muhammad.

It is often said that “A nation remain alive when its culture and history remain alive. “Every nation, therefore, seeks to know and preserve its history and cultural legacy. Islamic history the story of events involving the lives of countless Muslims (and, of course, their interaction with non-Muslims too) over a period of more than 1400 years is a vast book with chapters describing sublime achievements as well as tragic failures.
The present work is a humble effort towards that aim. The lessons contained herein are intended mainly for young Muslims, especially those living in the West. Ten critical events in Islamic history have been presented chronologically. This book does not claim in any way to be a comprehensive survey of any particular time period of Islamic history. Event have been selected for their inherent overall importance and interest . The book ends arbitrarily with the fateful year 1492 CE. Undoubtedly, equally crucial historically important events could also have been identified in the past five hundred years.
Each chapter concludes with a set of comprehension question and a topic for discussion. These of course can be supplemented by teacher and /or parent. Historically-accurate, full-color illustrations attempt to contextualize the events discussed.
Finally, it is hoped that this will encourage all its readers to continue their study of Islamic history in greater depth in order to comprehend not only pour collective past, but also our future, insha’ Allah.
To you all, my warmest salaams.
