Events only briefly mentioned in other works are dealt with in detail here. The strategies of Khalid ibn al-Walid, the piety of Abu Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah, the bravery of Dirar al-Kindi and many more are vividly described. This work also sheds light on lesser known aspects of Islamic history such as the significant role of women and Roman princes who embraced Islam.
