What is Shiekh Yasser al-Habib opinion of the Encyclopedia of Islamic History by Sheikh Muhammad Hadi Al-Yusufi Al-Gharawi? Which historical books do you advise us to read about the first centuries of Islam and the life of the Prophet (may Allah’’s blessings and peace be upon him and his family) and his family (peace be upon them) and what the rulers did in their time?
In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.
