O Mankind - A Pocketful of Gems from the Qur'an
9780860378136 - Paperback - 103p
The conception of this book derived after, like many people, searching through shelves in bookshops around the world and online unable to find a complete compilation of du'as (prayers) from the Qur’an.
When reading through the Qur'an, beautiful gems would glisten and sparkle to Umm Fahtima Zahra as she turned each page of the Qur’an and she would quickly scribble them down on a piece of paper to use. These were during times that she was being tested; during an oppression; a hardship and asking Allah for ease and relief from a burden. She decided why not collect these rubies, diamonds and pearls of incredible wisdom into her own guidebook.
After all the Prophets and Messengers, the Honourable Women (peace be upon them all) that Allah Speaks to us about also went through hardships, more intense than our own. Thus, she took on the mission to collect these gems and compile them into her own book.
