After the death of the Prophet Muhammad there followed many leaders of the Muslim world, who were known as Caliphs. These successors to the Prophet ruled first of all from Medina, then from Damascus and later from Baghdad, over an empire that included a large part of the world.
This book includes twenty-seven stories from the lives of those first Caliphs, including Umar ibn al-Khattab, and the celebrated Haroun al-Rashid.
Denys Johnson-Davies is a leading translator and writer who has published many books on the Arab world and Islam. He lives in Cairo.
