The World Federation's Bosnia Desk continues to serve the needs of external Tableegh in Bosnia. One of the biggest focuses is on Tableegh through publications. Alhamdulillah, we have translated and published 1000 copies of the book Towards Eternal Life by Shaykh Bahmanpour (translated by Abbas Jaffer). This book explains what happens to us when we leave this world in a rational and logical way. The Bosnian community has benefited tremendously from this publication as many didn’t know much about life after death and were curious to find out more. This book is thought-provoking and has given us knowledge of the final destination.
This book was distributed to all our community members, including libraries of some religious institutions like madrasas, and cultural centres in Bosnia.
We are planning to have more books printed in the future on other topics, as this book has proven to be a success.
Feedback from a reader from Bosnia: "I was under the impression that intercession is a matter of personal choice and that the great personalities can decide to intercede for whomever they wanted. But I have found in the book that everything on the Day of Judgment is regulated by an orderly system that does not alter at the wish or choice of individuals”.
