Jerusalem in the Qur’an made its debut at a crucial time when the morale of the Muslims was not only at its lowest… but is continually sinking… The blatant incessant Israeli incursions in the Holy Land go unabated, and Muslims are echoing the very words that their fellow brethren called out unto their Lord when they were being persecuted at the hands of the kuffar of Makkah: “When will the help of Allah come?”Shaikh Imran’s insight into the events that are unfolding in the world today is a source of inspiration for Muslims for he convincingly argues from his scholarly interpretations of the Divine Writ (i.e., the Holy Qur’an) and the Ahadith of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam) that the help of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’alah) is at hand, that the Holy Land will be liberated, and that Islam will re-emerge as the ‘Ruling State’ in the world. The reader will be enthralled by the author’s grasp of world politics. Jerusalem in the Qur’an comes as a ray of sunshine for Muslims and is an eye-opener for the so-called ‘People of the Book’. Though Jerusalem in the Qur’an is a meticulously written thesis combining religious and historical documents with recent political events and penetrating interpretations from the Qur’an and Hadith, it runs like a story. Once you begin reading it, it is hard to stop … It is a reference that one needs to keep and re-read whenever the subject is to be researched. The book gives a detailed beautifully written exposition of these episodes with brilliant interpretations from the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah. No one would fail to appreciate his penetrative thought and his spiritual depth.
