Full List of Book of Tales' Contents  >>

the works and words of those gone before us
have become instances and examples
to men of our modern day,
that folk may view what admonishing chances
befell other folk
and may therefrom take warning;
and that they may peruse
the annals of antique peoples
and all that has betided them,
and be thereby guided and enlightened:
Praise, therefore, be to Him (Allah)
who has made the histories of the Past
an admonition unto the Present!
