Islam is the religion of Allah that was sent with all of the Prophets, starting with Prophet Adam and which was followed by subsequent Prophets, from Noah to Abraham, Moses to Jesus and all the way to our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This is why we believe in and love all of the Prophets and Messengers. They all came with the same message to worship Allah alone. They came with Islam.
In the Arabic original, the author gives his book the title Sabighat, borrowing the Quranic description of the coats of mail Prophet David used to make for his soldiers. In its linguistic sense, the word means ‘of good length, full covering, etc.’ The implied sense is that those coats gave proper protection. Hence, the reference in this forwards to the coats of mail as giving protection against misconception.
