The best of mankind and the best generations of humanity have already lived and passed on. We who are alive now hope to model ourselves on them, and so this book will be of greatest value to those who take it in hand as an aid and inspiration for establishing a just and illuminated civilisation in the present age.

We present here a biographical sketch from the most authentic traditions on the lives of these noble men, their governance, and their contributions to that body of practice known as the Sunnah. They are non other than the four noblest and greatest Companions of the Final Messenger of Allah (S). Abu Bakr, 'Umar, 'Uthman and 'Ali - may Allah be pleased with them all.
