Umar : Makers of Islamic Civilization, Paperback / softback Book

Umar : Makers of Islamic Civilization Paperback / softback

Part of the Makers of Islamic Civilization series


Honoured by Sunni Muslims as the epitome of the just ruler, 'Umar, or Omar - the second Caliph - is one of the most significant figures in early Islamic history.

His rule (634-44 CE) laid the foundations of an empire that has since defined, both culturally and geographically, the heartlands of the Islamic world.

Shibli Numani's classic account (now revived, having been unavailable for decades), links the military conquests of the period with 'Umar's reforms in law, government and public administration.

He describes the personal strengths, skills and character of 'Umar and evaluates his contribution to the ethos of Islam.
