Asalam Aleikum

Doctor Shabbir!

How are you?

I hope everything is well.

I just want to commend you on a fantastic translation of the Qu'ran.

How i wish everyone could read it.

Once i picked it up, i could not let it go.

Took me just a little less than a week to go through it.

Certainly the most powerful book to ever have existed in not only the past, but also the present and future to come.

Never have i reflected so much over my own life as i did in that 1 week.

Wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work and most noble mission

What greater inspiration does one need than surah 73 verse 20!

Most certainly, (O Messenger!) Your Lord is fully Aware that you
stay up working two thirds of the night, one half of it, or one third of it,
together with some of your companions. But God has designed the night
and the day, and He knows that you and your companions will not even
keep count of your vigil. So He turns to you in kindness. Recite to them
as much of the Qur’an that you may do with ease. He knows that in time
some of you may be ill, and others have to travel seeking God’s bounty.
And others who will have to fight in the cause of God. Therefore, recite
and convey as much of the Qur’an as may be easy for all. You have to
establish the Divine System and set up the Just Economic Order. And
lend to God a goodly loan. Whatever good you send forth for your own
‘self’ you will find with God, better and more excellent in reward. And
seek the protection of forgiveness of God for imperfections. Certainly,
God is Forgiving, Merciful.

May Allah show mercy on our journey through this and the next life!

Also, on another note:

Your next book about the prophets.
It is quite funny. While reading the Qu'ran i kept thinking how it would be great if you or anyone else would write a book that goes into detail on the life and mission of every prophet starting from Noah.

It is quite funny to see that you, a couple of weeks after i was thinking about it, have picked up the task.

I am looking most forward to seeing it finished.

I would not mind being "one" of your proof readers if it is needed!


Best Regards
