The Story of Yemen in the Quran and in the times of the Prophet Muhammad (s) & Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a).
Baldatun Tayyibatun addresses ‘the world’s most urgent humanitarian crisis’ in Yemen, ravaged by more than three years of ethnic cleansing and collective punishment at the hands of the Saudi-led war to reimpose a government loyal to it. Reviewing Islamic sources, it seeks to portray the importance and role of Yemen in early Islamic history. Journeying through its civilisation, starting with the stories of the ancient prophets as described in the holy Qur’an, it focuses on Yemen’s conversion story at the hands of Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (a), the great companions that hail from the region and its relationship to the Ahl al-Bayt (a) thereafter.
The purposes of the book are to raise awareness of the merits this ‘Land Most Goodly’ as named by Allah (swt) and to raise funds for the relief of the downtrodden in Yemen.
