This Volume discusses a number of various topics which the author thinks the reader will find to be very interesting. Among them are: Surat al-Fatiha (the Opening Chapter of the Holy Qur’an), its significance, implications, mysteries and linguistic marvels; a number of selected supplications (original Arabic texts and author’s translations) and the stories behind them in order to demonstrate how one can get to know his Lord from supplication; a discussion of the biography of the Prophet of Islam which occupies the bulk of this book and which takes the reader back to the 7th Century and how the Arabs were living in their Peninsula, their interactions with followers of Paganism, Christianity and Judaism. He narrates details of a plot to assassinate the Prophet’s mother and later to assassinate him, wizardry and witchcraft during the time; how the Islamic message was born, fought for survival and flourished, the two Jewish ladies who became the Prophet’s wives, covenants of the Prophet with the Christians of Najran, Yemen, and with Medina, Hijaz (Arabic texts and translations), how the immediate family of the Prophet of Islam did not receive the recognition it deserves and the injustice meted particularly to his only surviving daughter, Fatima, whose inheritance was confiscated… It also contains three important chapters: 1) one about the Qur’an and its miraculous aspects, 2) another about the rising Islamophobia throughout the West and Islam bashing in Japan, and 3) a discussion of “jihad”, the most misunderstood Islamic concept, and of the Qaida menace: Wahhabism, Takfirism and terrorism. Throughout the book, the author stresses the unity of the adherents to the Abrahamic faith, advocating peaceful coexistence between the Muslims of the world and followers of all other religions; after all, according to him, we all are members of one and the same family which our parents, Adam and Eve, started.
