The book contains about five hundred historical anecdotes culled from the careers of some illustrious sons of Islam belonging to the various dominions of Asia, Europe and Africa over which the Crescent once had its magnanimous sway. Kings and courtiers, princes and poets, soldiers and saints, all crowd in the scene, to tell the tale of their real self through the representative incidents of their life and activity. It is a treasure of illuminating types and instances of human achievement – shining in their inherent glory, charming in their absorbing interest and inspiring in their irresistible appeal.
