    I think i'll give it a miss, the excerpt from Usha Sanyal's other work has thrown me off.

    Who is Alahazrat' is the bench mark, a work that needs to be printed and made available and a venture which i will put money towards if somebody decides to bring it out.

    a correction. it is usha sanyal's other book that i have read as discussed in other threads.
    i think i have only seen only excerpts cited from this book in other papers/etc. so for the time, please consider my comments as withdrawn, until i find the book and read it - though i expect it to be no different.

    wAllahu a'alam.

    i read the book and it is awful.

    it is somewhat like this:

    the book 'who is alahazrat' was written as a stop-gap until someone compiles a proper biography of alahazrat.
    wa billahi't tawfiq.

    I have got this book at home and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It is written by a Non-Muslim historian and much of its contents are probably well known to you, nonetheless, it is a good read and serves as a good introduction to the life of Ala Hazrat and the events that occurred during his lifetime. She also relied mainly on Sunni sources, in particular Maulana Yaseen Akhtar Misbahi, who she met and discussed the book with. I hope this helps

    Is anyone aware of the author? Also, if anyone has read this work, is it any good?

    Baarak'Allahu fikum.
