About the Book

"Dr. Munawar Sabir has chosen 75 verses of the Qur'an that begin with "O! Ye who Believe," to cover the 37 Covenants that a Muslim enters into. I find Dr. Munawar Sabir's arguments very well grounded and persuasive. It is yet another attempt to clear the confusion in the minds of Muslims over the present state of Islam and the Ummah. We cannot say that the oppression and the humiliation of the Muslims are preordained by Allah. We are taught and we know that all that is good which happens to us is from Allah and all that is bad is from ourselves. If we are in the parlous state that we are now it must be because of us; because we are not following the teachings of Islam, or as is put by Dr. Munawar, we are not keeping to our Covenants."

Dr. Mahathir bin Mhanad. Scholar Statesman - former Prime Minister of Malaysia

About the Author

Dr. Munawar Sabir, the author was born in Kenya, then a British colony. He received his education in Kenya, Pakistan, England and Canada. As a product of Muslim and secular heritages of Africa, Asia, Europe and America, he has gone back to delve deep into his original heritage of the din and the Qur'an.

Dr. Munawar Sabir has written six books on contemporary Islam, the Covenant of the Qur'an and the historical events that have shaped the current state of the Islamic societies. There books are the culmination of over thirty years of observation, study and research on Islam and the socio-political development of Islamic societies in reaction to their fulfillment of the Covenant of Allah.

Munawar Sabir is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada. He has practiced Surgery in Britain and Canada for over forty years. He has published scientific papers on Neurological disorders of the musculo-skeletal system.

Apart form running a busy Medical practice and writing, Dr. Munawar Sabir has traveled extensively in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, North America and Europe in pursuit of his studies on contemporary Islam.

In this book Dr. Munawar Sabir points that the Qur'an is a living and vibrant communion between Allah and His creatures. The lines of thought and the step by step Guidance laid out by Allah for the Believer fourteen hundred years ago continues to vitalize the community of Believers as it did in the course of early Islam's belief, thought and history. However the sense of the Word read, recited and explained by the scholars if Islam has remained anchored to the meaning given to it by the masha'ikhs of the schools of Jurisprudence at the time of the Umayyad and the Abbasids in the middle ages. The religion that passes as Islam today, the Islam if the masses, the scholars and the ruling classes both of the Shia and the Sunni, is the fossilized version of Islam if the middle ages. Its faade however dilapidated is there, but the spirit in essential respect is un-Qur'anic. It is not the Islam of the Qur'an nor is it the Islam of the Blessed Nabi.

Dr. Sabir believes that Muslims will find answers to their search in the Qur'an; the remedy to the ills of modern day Islamic world lie in page after page of the Holy Book in the step by step Guidance of Allah.
