The well-known Albanian Ottoman scholar, Sami Frash ri, wrote the treatise at hand during a time when the Muslim world was being conquered and divided by the European colonial powers, and the office of the Ottoman caliph was losing its influence in the region due to the global rise of nationalism. Some of the topics addressed include a brief history of Islam and its rapid expansion, Muslim nations and their trials, as well as Muslim contributions to science and civilization. Sami dedicated this concise work to the brave Muslims involved in the expansion of Islam despite the challenges faced from all directions. This first-ever English translation of Frash ri's 19th century discourse is an enormous contribution to world history from a Muslim lens.
