First, let me thank @parh_likh for sending me my second book for the review. I must say they are generous to readers like us and they have gotten a vast collection of best books as well on their website. Must check that out. Now, I must state that this book was in my #TBR list for the very long time. In 2017, through one of the NFP’s book I came to know about this book and finally I read it today and I am glad that I read it. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was a controversial personality in his time and remained through entire Pakistan Movement. The first chapter of this book is a short biography of sir syed and all the famous parameters, that a history lover must know, are there. After reading his life and his 8 essays, I admire the will of Sir Syed and his intentions for rising the Muslims of subcontinent in particular and Indians in general in the British Raj. There is no single doubt in the efforts of Sir Syed in the area of Education. He was the man who dedicated his much of the life for the education of Indian Muslims and that thing only is enough to remember his name. But his works in religion, politics and literature are quite amazing too. This book is one of that works. And a big shout out for the compliers/editors of this book. The Essay “Harms in the Observance of Customs” is my most favourite essay from this book. Though I differ on few grounds with Sir Syed but as a whole he did amazing job in the dark ages of Muslims. And this book completely justifies the work of Sir Syed. Out of his around 212 essays, the best 8 essays are presented in this book and it has made me more curious to read more of his essays too. So, soon I am going to get my hands on all of his essays. Till that, Happy Reading!
