The World Federation launches “Perspectives on Islamic Faith and History” by Dr. Bashir Ahmed Datoo in EBOOK format.

Many of us would like to learn more about our faith and religion, especially given the challenges of our current times.  On an almost daily basis, we face situations and choices that make us question what our opinion as Muslims should be.  Without a clear comprehension of our founding principles, it is impossible to have a strong standing in tumultuous environment that we live in.

This second enlarged edition of Dr. Datoo's collection of essays is an ideal publication for the Muslim who wants to either learn or refresh his or her knowledge regarding the foundations of Islam.  The fifty essays in this book are short, straightforward and use interesting examples to illustrate his ideas.

The variety of issues addresses - from the spiritual aspects of Fiqh and 'Aqaid to the practical aspects of history, politics and society - make the book one that will appeal to a range of interests.  This integration is intentional as the writer tries to show how all the subjects inevitably connect to the one unifying foundation concept of Tawhid.

Dr. Datoo uses various reliable sources, including the Qur'an and ahadith to support his writing.  There are plenty of explanatory notes, introductions and sub-sections that make the essays easy to both read and understand.

A key factor that makes this book attractive is that the essays can be read individually and each one stands alone - which means that it is perfect for those who don't have time for dedicated reading or who prefer to read 'on the go'.

"Stepping foot into a new country, a new culture, without the guidance of my parents would have been a scary experience, had we not been welcomed into the open arms of our mentors. Being a part of the Madinah and Bab al Ilm family I had the time of my life. I can never do the course justice in explaining my experiences but I'll try. Being on this course in Iran felt like a home away from home, I rarely missed my family as our exciting schedule kept us busy. From climbing Mount Khizr, to our early morning twilight sessions, the course always had us on our feet and moving.

The Iran short course in 2015 was definitely one of the best experiences of my lifetime.

My journey to Iran was a dream come true. I was really looking forward to facing the tombs of the great personalities and having my prayers answered through them.

My first visit to the shrine of lady Masuma left me speechless. I could only stand there with tears streaming down my face and mumble lots of salawaats. At that time I believed that with prayers one can succeed in anything.
