Ibn Kathir’s  Al-Bidāya wa-n-Nihāya (lit. the beginning and the end) is one of the best-known works of Islamic historiography. While it covers “universal” history, from the creation of the world until the end of the world and Islamic eschatology. It contained the stories of the Prophets and previous nations, the Prophet’s Seerah (life story) and Islamic history until his time. He also added a book Al-Fitan, about the Signs of the Last Hour. Its primary value is in the details of the politics of Ibn Kathir’s own day.
