In this book, `Qasas-ul-Anbiya` the stories of the prophets have been compiled from `Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah` (The Beginning and the End) which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature.
The stories of the prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by the Qur`anic Verses and the Sunnah (traditions) of the Prophet (S). Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources. Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Qur`an of his time. The systemic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which renders a historical style to the book.
