This is the first volume from this series, which deals with the life of Ab Bakr as-iddq, the first of the Four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. No other person in the History of Islam can be compared to him when it comes to truthfulness, insight into Islamic teachings and devotion to Allah and His Messenger (S).
