About this Item: SAQI BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Noor is the tale of three brothers attempting to rescue their sister Noor, who has been kidnapped during Ramadan. Each brother represents a different ideological position in the contemporary Islamic world. While exploring the crisis of modern Islam, Noor is a heartfelt treatise for religious tolerance. Ahmed points out that the play could be set in Baghdad but also Cairo, Karachi or Kabul. The Trial of Dara Shikoh tells the story of the eldest son of 17th century Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Heir apparent, Dara Shikoh is a learned scholar with a strong belief in the unity of different faiths: Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity and Judaism. Ahmed s play highlights the complex issue of religious interpretation within a human context, set in the 17th century, its text resonating just as strongly for the contemporary reader.

About this Item: Partridge Publishing, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Mir-Taqi-Mir-or Mir, as he is better known-was one of the greatest poets of Urdu. The book is a fascinating story of his life of rare courage and grit. Orphaned at the age of eleven with the death of an ascetic father, with nothing to fall back on, young Mir was thrown into difficult times to face life and support his family. The Indian subcontinent faced internecine wars, and the great Mughal empire was crumbling in front of the child Mir, who was left to fend for himself and provide for his family. Mir witnessed the destruction and savagery of Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali brought upon Delhi. These historical times left a deep impression on Mir as is seen in his poetic sensibilities. The book captures the personal travails of Mir, the drama of his time, and his soul- stirring poetry. Arguably the greatest of Urdu poets Ghalib made a rare unqualified exception when it came to Mir as he wrote: Rekhta ke tum hee ustaad nahin ho Ghalib, Kehte hain agle Zamane mein koi Mir bhi tha . . . Ghalib, you are not the only master of Urdu poetry Heard people say there was one Mir in the bygone era. Seller Inventory # AAV9781482814781

Noor is the tale of three brothers attempting to rescue their sister Noor, who has been kidnapped during Ramadan. Each brother represents a different ideological position in the contemporary Islamic world. While exploring the crisis of modern Islam, Noor is a heartfelt treatise for religious tolerance. Ahmed points out that the play could be set in Baghdad but also Cairo, Karachi or Kabul. The Trial of Dara Shikoh tells the story of the eldest son of 17th century Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Heir apparent, Dara Shikoh is a learned scholar with a strong belief in the unity of different faiths: Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity and Judaism. Ahmed s play highlights the complex issue of religious interpretation within a human context, set in the 17th century, its text resonating just as strongly for the contemporary reader.

About this Item: Partridge Publishing, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Mir-Taqi-Mir-or Mir, as he is better known-was one of the greatest poets of Urdu. The book is a fascinating story of his life of rare courage and grit. Orphaned at the age of eleven with the death of an ascetic father, with nothing to fall back on, young Mir was thrown into difficult times to face life and support his family. The Indian subcontinent faced internecine wars, and the great Mughal empire was crumbling in front of the child Mir, who was left to fend for himself and provide for his family. Mir witnessed the destruction and savagery of Nadir Shah and Ahmed Shah Abdali brought upon Delhi. These historical times left a deep impression on Mir as is seen in his poetic sensibilities. The book captures the personal travails of Mir, the drama of his time, and his soul- stirring poetry. Arguably the greatest of Urdu poets Ghalib made a rare unqualified exception when it came to Mir as he wrote: Rekhta ke tum hee ustaad nahin ho Ghalib, Kehte hain agle Zamane mein koi Mir bhi tha . . . Ghalib, you are not the only master of Urdu poetry Heard people say there was one Mir in the bygone era. Seller Inventory # AAV9781482814781

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. THE ‘MANTLE’ POETSTranslation Introduction by Paul SmithKa’b ibn Zuhair (died 7th century A.D.) was a famous poet who at first opposed Prophet Muhammad. Finally, he secretly went to Medina and approached the Prophet to ask if one who repented and embraced the faith would be forgiven. Mohammed answered yes and the poet asked, "Even Ka‘b ibn Zuhair?" When he affirmed this, Ka’b revealed his identity and read a poem, his Banat Suad (of 55 couplets), which would become his most famous poem. As a reward Prophet Mohammed took off his mantle (cloak) and put it on Ka‘b’s shoulders. The second was composed by the eminent Sufi, Imam al-Busiri (1210-1297). The poem (161 couplets) is entirely in praise of Prophet Mohammed, who is said to have cured the poet of paralysis by appearing to him in a dream and wrapping him in a mantle. The third poet was Ahmed Shawqi (1869 - 1932) the great Egyptian poet and dramatist who pioneered the modern Egyptian literary movement. His ‘Mantle’ qasida is 190 couplets. The correct rhyme-structure has been kept and meaning of these beautiful, powerful, spiritual poems.

About this Item: CLAIRVIEW BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Following the U.S. declaration of a war on terror, Washington hawks were quick to label Iraq part of an axis of evil. After a tense build-up, in March 2003 the United States and Britain invaded Iraq, purportedly to protect Western publics from weapons of mass destruction (WMD). But was this the real reason, or simply a convenient pretext to veil a covert agenda?Using official sources, Ahmed investigates U.S. and British claims about Iraq s WMD programs and in the process reveals the hidden motives behind the 2003 invasion and the grand strategy of which it is a part. He shows that the true goals of U.S.-British policy in the Middle East are camouflaged by spin, P.R. declarations and seemingly noble words. The reality can only be comprehended through knowledge of the history of Western intervention in the region. Ahmed demonstrates that such intervention has been dictated ruthlessly by economic and political interests, with little regard for human rights. He traces events of the past decades, beginning with the West s support for the highly repressive Shah of Iran, his subsequent usurpation by the Ayatollah s Islamist regime and the West s resultant backing of Saddam Hussein. The sponsorship of Saddam s tyranny--a self-serving tactic intended to strategically counterbalance Iran--included the supply of technology to build WMD, as well as tacit complicity in their use against Iranians and Kurds.Ahmed s meticulous research into the secret history of Western maneuverings in the Middle East since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire reveals the actual causes of the first Gulf War, the humanitarian catastrophe created by the 12-year sanctions policy against Iraq, and the consistent obstructions of the Oil for Food program. He also provides information on the West s own widespread use of WMD, and the likely culprits of the 2001 anthrax attacks in the U.S.Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is a human rights activist and political analyst specializing in the study of conflicts. The executive director of the Institute for Policy Research Development, he is the author of a variety of reports on human rights practices, as well as the best-selling book, The War on Freedom: How and Why America was Attacked, S.
