*** Indeed in their stories, there is a lesson for men of understanding. (Yusuf, 111) ***

The Author:
Ismail ibn Kathir (1301–1373 ) was a renowned Muhaddith, Faqih, Historian and Mufassir. He was widely acclaimed and unanimously attested for his sublime degree of learning, particularly in the fields of the exegesis of the Glorious Quran, Hadith and history.
