    Unhappy History of al-Tabari 40 Vol PB Set English - Tarikh al-Rusul wa'l muluk

    Assalamikum,

    I am thinking of buying the english Translations of History of al-Tabari 40 Vol PB Set English - Tarikh al-Rusul wa'l muluk - By Iman Tabari.

    But when I looked who the Translator, am surprised to see only 4 vol are translation by Muslim and the rest 35 are by non muslims.

    the Main what surprised me this that the First volume and the 38 volume is translated by a person called: Franz Rosenthal, and when I google him, his a jew - translated islamic books! look: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Rosenthal - or has he convert to islam?

    also Moshe Perlmann translted one volume he was jew but its say he convert to islam.

    Yohanan Friedmann also think hes jew, but translted alot of islamic book.

    the rest of the Translator : http://www.bysiness.co.uk/tabari/index.htm

    My question is has any got these book are they ok to buy as non muslim have Translated most of them, do they still have the true Translation of have to change to meet the Translator ideology.

    So alot of Islamic book shop sell this book. but do person know who Translatied these book?

    Please can some one help.

    Jazakallah Khair,

    Mohammed

    the first link doesnt work.

    the second is a link to a shia website so it cant be trusted. Obviously, they are not going to be fond of Imam Tabaris (ra)'s History, because it crushes their belief that Ali (ra) should have been Caliph after the Prophet (saw). Imam tabari was Sunni.

    website currently under construction. Will be updated soon.
