This is an interesting book which brings out the personality and role of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) as a statesman in the city of Medina. Since the message of Islam was sent for the whole of humanity, the Messenger as soon as he stabilised the situation in Medina, began to invite the neighbouring empires and civilizations to accept Islam.
Apart from the letters sent to King of Ethiopia, Heracles, Khusro, etc., the book also mentions the treaties, pacts and agreements the Messenger had with the Jews and the neighbouring tribes along with the letters he wrote to the governors and other administrative officials.
This book further breaks the notion that the message of the Prophet is spiritual and Islam has nothing to do with politics.

A group of such people is the Ashrah Mubash-Sharah (the ten companions whom the Messenger gave the glad tidings of paradise in this world itself). The ten fortunate ones are; Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Abdur Rahman Bin Auf, Sad Bin Abi Waqqas, Said Ibn Zaid and Abu Ubaidah Ibn Jarrah.
