As its title clearly implies, Madinian Society at the Time of the Prophet (SAAS) is a work which brings out the most important aspects of life in the early Muslim community. Its author, the renowned scholar or sirah and Sunnah studies Professor Akram Diya’ al ‘Umari, has expended a great deal of effort in order to make this book more than just a recitation of the historical record. The result is that the book represents a breakthrough in terms of its historiographical methodology, as Dr. al ‘Umari has effectively succeeded in combining the strict methodological guidelines used by the traditional Islamic scholars of the Sunnah and usul al hadith with the modern methods of historical criticism.
Volume One of this important new work, subtitles Its Characteristics and Organization, aims at presenting the reader with an accurate description of the society brought about through the efforts of the Prophet (SAAS) and his Companions, the society viewed by every successive generation of Muslims as the ideal in temporal and spiritual values.
