This book, originally published in 1884, is a translation of Taubat-al-Nasuh (1874) by Nazir Ahmad, one of the stalwarts of the Aligarh Movement and a younger contemporary of Syed Ahmad Khan. This Urdu novel brings alive, through incident and dialogue, a crisis of values among members of an elite Muslim family in Delhi soon after the Great Rebellion of 1857. Though didactic in purpose, the novel's many literary qualities justify its general recognition as the first major novel in Urdu. It is among India's most important literary texts, emphasizing the role of religion in inculcating ideals and virtues for proper conduct.
