The Sacred Trusts: A book that every Muslim should have! (Collectors Edition)

The Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul, Turkey has preserved hundreds of items that belonged to the Prophets, Companions, Caliphs and Heroes of Islam.

This collection of 605 relics includes the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) clothes, his sandals, his cup and his seal. Also included in this amazing collection are items like the Staff of Prophet Moses (pbuh), keys and locks of Ka’ba, Qur’anic verses written by ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan, Sword of ‘Ali ibn Abu Talib and so much more.

Hilmi Aydin, currently the manager of the Division of Sacred Relics at the Museum, has photographed and presented this absolutely unique collection in a hardbound book of 352 pages.  The hundreds of full color photographs are of excellent quality. The captions are both scholarly and sensitive. Everything about the book is world class.

Reading “The Sacred Trusts” is an amazing experience. For Muslims history comes alive in a way that cannot be duplicated by any other book. The emotional impact of “seeing’ the things actually used by the Prophet (pbuh) in his daily life reinforces the reality and truth of the Islamic tradition in a uniquely powerful way. This is especially true for young/new Muslims who have not lived in a traditional Islamic society.
