This is an interesting book which brings out the personality and role of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) as a statesman in the city of Medina. Since the message of Islam was sent for the whole of humanity, the Messenger as soon as he stabilised the situation in Medina, began to invite the neighbouring empires and civilizations to accept Islam.
Apart from the letters sent to King of Ethiopia, Heracles, Khusro, etc., the book also mentions the treaties, pacts and agreements the Messenger had with the Jews and the neighbouring tribes along with the letters he wrote to the governors and other administrative officials.
This book further breaks the notion that the message of the Prophet is spiritual and Islam has nothing to do with politics.

Allah has prescribed Muslims on these two special days to perform their salat outside the city in a big gathering in an open ground (Idgaah).

The growing materialism (leading to individualism) has reduced the worth of emotions, relations and love. This has manifested in the worst form in children not only disobeying but disrespecting their parents, so much so that they are leaving them alone in their old age to fend for themselves.
Islam, as it has come to regulate all the affairs of the life, gives detailed rights of parents over their children and makes it a religious duty for children to respect their parents, no matter what the situation is. The children are to respect their children and speak to them kinds words, even if they are not Muslims.
In this book, Maulana Ashiq Ilahi Bulandshehri, charts out the rights of the parents over their children and the sharai duties children owe to the parents. The book not only mentions about speaking kind words to parents but other things that are necessary but are yet unknown. This book is a necessary read for the young children and especially married men and women as we often fail to realise that we are not giving our parents their due.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, Islam and Modernism have been at loggerheads. The debates swing from one extreme to another as some argue that Islam completely negates Modernism and every modern thing, be it related to science and technology or culture is forbidden in Islam, whereas others argue that Islam embraces Modernism and depending on the times Islam can be changed as the need be.
This book by Mufti M Taqi Usmani, takes on this complex debate between Islam and Modernism and puts forward how much the two are in conflict and in concordance. Taking heavily on the ‘New Interpretation of Islam,’ the author dedicates one full chapter to it.
It is a good book passionately written to clarify the Islamic viewpoint towards Modernism and how the ‘Modernists’ are falling in the trap and changing the actual Islam.
