The best books I ever read

Respected Dr Shabbir Sahab,


My father contacted you a couple of weeks ago to sincerely acknowledge you for your work as a writer. He had requested that you send him three books, two in Urdu and one in English.

I do not understand Urdu, so the one in English, Islam AS I Understand, was the first for me.

I can honestly say that it is the best book I have ever read.

It is also the first book I ever read from cover to cover in a period of only two days. Seriously, after i got done reading the first paragraph I couldn't stop.

The proofs and quotations in this book are so interesting, I feel like sharing them with everyone I know. One example of one such quotation comes from the section on human rights, and how the Holy Quran was the first conveyor of universal human rights.

I am a fan of the TV show COPS, and as you may or may not know, before every episode there is a message on the screen, that reads "All suspects are innocent, until proven guilty" This human right I learned has been in the Holy Quran for over 1400 years. SubhanAllah! After completing this book, the first thing I did was go online and search your name. Than, I came to your website and saw what I had never before seen.

I have started THE QURAN AS IT EXPLAINS ITSELF. Marvelous.

Thank You very much.
