The Chain Of Prophets

God has blessed humans with a number of supreme qualities to lead them to the truth.
However, He has also further helped them by appointing guides from among them with exceptional, God-given traits. Among those guides, the ones who received divine revelation are known as prophets.
The prophets are righteous individuals, who have set an example for the rest of humankind and who were given three main duties:
1. To convey the revelations of God,
2. To cleanse and purify souls,
3. And to teach people the book and wisdom.
Sending prophets is our Lord’s special way of helping humanity and this help started with Prophet Adam (AS) in order to encompass the entire history of man.
Adam (AS) was not only the first man but also the first prophet. Around 124,000 prophets have since walked on and cemented the cobbles of that sacred path to salvation. Although the core of the message they delivered remained unchanged, parallel to the progress of humanity, the path reached its summit and perfection in Prophet Muhammed (SAW).
We have humbly relied on the help of Allah to write this book, which offers the parables of the prophets as told by the Qur’an. It begins with the first leaf of the prophetic calendar and ends with the last, laying emphasis on the lessons and wisdom to be taken from their experiences.
Here, our readers will find the story and events during the life of all Prophets Peace upon them – except the blessed time of Prophet Muhammed Peace and Blessings upon him which is relate in a special book totally dedicated to his life.


Health, Hygiene And First Aid

Hygiene (or cleanliness) is an innate characteristic of human beings. It is necessary for a person that he be clean and remain clean. This is so because people experience peace and health in this way. I should mention the following truth one more time: Cleanliness is not only for people, but also for animals, plants, and all animate and even inanimate beings. They all have a need for cleanliness and it should not be put off for later. Mountains and rocks are washed by rain, ducks are inspired to clean themselves in streams, and cats are given the ability to clean themselves. Allah, exalted be He, who created all these things, also desired that people would clean themselves by their own will. A real Muslim should have clean bodies and smell pleasing, have a good look, appearance, and his imaginings and thoughts do not contain anything dirty. In this state, a true Muslim resembles a precious flower, constantly radiating beauty. It is necessary for all mankind to understand and try to live like the Prophet Muhammad, (saws) who is at the peak of all forms of cleanliness so the book you are holding has been written in the light of is sayings and Qur’anic verses. This book, explains not only what may be done and how we may contribute to having clean air, soil and water and a clean environment, but also in a detailed way the connection between cleanliness and health and the importance of ensuring a clean body, room, house, alley, street, city, and country. Neslihan Nur TÜRK has written this book, Health, Hygiene and First Aid, to be conductive to make a generation pure and healthy, physically and in all areas of meaning, and with the hope that future mothers and fathers may raise awareness in these issues.
