Men of learning have written a large number of books in their bid to present Islam and they have been successful in projecting the true face of this great religion. They all deserve to be thanked for their labour and dedication. However, to give an overall idea of Islam in a nut-shell need was being felt for a book that would be concise yet comprehensive, would be objective in its approach, and present the right image and a faithful picture of Islam before the readers because the majority among Muslims – particularly a large number of Muslims who live in India – have become victims of ignorance and superstations. They have themselves become unfamiliar with the totality of the Islamic system. So much so, that there seems to be no perceptible difference between them and people who are alien to Islam. As a result, a number of hurdles have sprung up in the path of those of us who try to search of the true form of Islam in real life and wish to follow it. The removal of these hurdles and the correct presentation of Islam is the duty of every sympathizing Muslim. It is a task which has continued of large and small scales, in on from or the other, at every time and place. The present book too is link in this auspicious chain.
On a more current note, the writer’s Hindustani Musalman ek nazar mein was published a few years ago in Urdu, Hindi, and English to meet the need of a book that would correctly illustrate the way Muslims should be. Irrespective of the way they are. The purpose was to present them before their fellow countrymen in true form and colour, without the addition of tints, presumptions and ambiguities; and without being uncharitable or unjust to them in the course of the presentation. A chasm still remind, there remained the need for a handy and concise book that would present the true picture and the gist Islam because many Muslims and our non-Muslim brethren find voluminous books strenuous to read.
