You Will Want to Rewind and Do It All Over Again!
Updated on 12 March 2018
Bashir Ahmed Datoo, in his latest book ‘Bookend Revolutions, In Islamic History’, revisits the revolution that took place at the time of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) and closes with the revolution that will occur under the leadership of the Imam Mahdi (a). These two revolutions form, as it were, the ‘bookends’ of Islamic history. After the return of Imam Mahdi (a) the final phase of the revolution will transpire which will reiterate the original message taught by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) of justice and peace.
Overall, this book is an excellent read particularly for those who wish to understand the relationship between certain historical events that occurred between the two revolutions. It provides the reader with an insight into Islamic history through a very detailed analysis and concludes with the renewal of the original revolution that was introduced by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w).

We all woke up well and proceeded to the Haram of Lady Masuma (AS) for Fajr prayers. It was a humbling experience to perform our prayers in the Holy Mosque.
Our classes began as usual at 10 in the morning. I personally enjoyed the lessons because they were directly touching our day lives. Most notably was the lesson titled 'Keys to Successful Adulthood' delivered by Br. Rajabali Alidina. In today’s lesson, I learnt about the role of a friend and how they influence our lives. I also learnt that any relation with a lady should be based on need and nothing else.
The Madinah and Bab courses this year will take place from 23rd of July to 12th of August, 2015, Inshallah.

We will have twelve mentors supporting our participants - eight ladies and four gents.
