1) Abu Bakr Siddiq
This book is about the life and teachings of Abu Bakr Siddiq (may Allah be pleased with Him)-The Frist Caliph of Islam.
2) Umar Farooq
Umar Farooq (RA), the second Caliph of Islam, ruled for about ten years over a total area of 2,251,030 square miles. His rule was exemplary, every decision and action of his being guided by the word of Allah, as enshrined in the Quran. It is difficult to imagine that any ruler who had a huge empire, like Umar Farooq's (RA), would live like a simple, common man.
But that is exactly what he did. He wore clothes with many patches, slept on the floor, ate plain food, and traveled to foreign lands with just one servant and a camel. Umar Farooq (RA) had a strong sense of duty and justice. Throughout his rule, everyone was treated equally and with justice, whether he was a Muslim or a non-Muslim. He lived in the love and fear of Allah. In the history of the world, there was and still is no other ruler like him: he was unique.
3) Uthman ibn Affan
Uthman Ibn Affan (RA), the third Caliph of Islam ruled for twelve years, the longest among the rightly guided Caliphs. During his rule, people became economically more prosperous and he further undertook such activities and projects which also improved their overall quality of life. He was a peace-loving, liberal, and kind-hearted ruler.
Uthman Ibn Affan (RA), had all the qualities of a good Muslim but his generosity and modesty stood out. He was the richest person among the Quraish but he spent most of his wealth on the well-being of his people and in the cause of Islam. In particular, he helped the orphans and the widows. In spite of being rich and powerful, he was extremely humble and lived a simple life.
Uthman Ibn Affan (RA), was very religious and a man of principles and whatever might be the circumstances he never compromised with his beliefs and principles. Thrice he received the glad tidings of Paradise from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
4) Ali ibn Abi Talib
In fact, he was so close to the Prophet that once the Prophet said to him, “You are of me, and I of you.” This closeness, however, entailed great responsibility along with constantly being tested with trying situations.
In the course of time, Ali became well-versed in Islamic knowledge, achieved profundity in religion, and lived a life of deep realization and spirituality. The Caliphs Abu Bakr, Umar , and Uthman used regularly to consult him in matters of importance. After Uthman’s death, Ali was chosen to be the fourth Caliph of Islam.
