Last week, The World Federation was pleased to launch a new publication, entitled ‘ Bookend Revolutions, In Islamic History’ by Dr Bashir Ahmed Datoo .
In this book, Dr Datoo revisits the revolution that took place at the time of the Holy Prophet (saw) and closes with the revolution that will occur under the leadership of the Imam Mahdi (ajfs). These two revolutions form, as it were, the ‘bookends’ of Islamic history. After the return of Imam Mahdi (ajfs) the final phase of the revolution will transpire which will reiterate the original message taught by the Holy Prophet (saw) of justice and peace.
This week, we look at a short video message from Dr Datoo on his new book. In this short clip, he talks about the thinking behind the title, the conceptual framework applied in the analytical discussions and the five broad categories that are considered with these historic events.
You can watch Dr Datoo’s video here.
The present work is an annotated translation of the thirty-first edition, published in 2014 by the Qum office of al-Sayyid al-Sistani. Shaykh Mohammed Ali Ismail deserves to be commended for successfully completing this challenging task.
The World Federation online shop sells a variety of products from books about the history of Islam to Dua cards for every situation. One area with rising popularity is the “Kid’s Corner”.
