Salaam dear Dr. Saheb,

Congratulations on embarking upon your new work, "History of the Prophets". I am sure that it will be as forceful a work as all your other books.

I would like to volunteer for this book by offering my services as an editor. I have previously assisted my uncle, the late scholar of Turkish, Dr. Sayed Naeemuddin, in the composition and editing of his book "The Fire of the Flute", a comparative study of Rumi and Iqbal; I'm sure this experience will come in handy.

Looking forward to being part of this awesome project: what a great opportunity to develop my 'self'!

Wassalaam

Wa alaikum Salam, dear betay!

I wish there were more Umar Usmans in the world, but there never have been. The world has always suffered from quantity vs quality.

SHIKWAH ILALLAH (Complaint to the Almighty), so I am not afraid to be critical :-)

Why did He make this world so imperfect? AADMI X 100,000000 abounds - INSAAN X oasis in the Sahara desert!

AGAR KAJ RO HAIN ANJUM AASMAN TERA HAI YA MERA
MUJHAY FIKRE JAHAN KION HO JAHAN TERA HAI YA MERA

It's my good fortune to have you as the Editor.

May Allah bless you!

May I or can you post your email on the forum, even if edited?

Thank you very much, dear Dr. Saheb!

Insha’Allah, you will find me a capable and sincere worker.

Interestingly, I had bought Ibn Kathir’s Qasas ul Ambiya back in 2003, but found it so full of banalities that I didn’t even read it halfway through. At that point of time I could have never thought that I’d have the opportunity to contribute to this project! Thank you for this opportunity, dear sir!

You may kindly post my original message, whatever part of it you want, at the forum.

Wassalaam

Umar
