Bashir Ahmed Datoo, in his latest book ‘Bookend Revolutions, In Islamic History’, revisits the revolution that took place at the time of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) and closes with the revolution that will occur under the leadership of the Imam Mahdi (a). These two revolutions form, as it were, the ‘bookends’ of Islamic history. After the return of Imam Mahdi (a) the final phase of the revolution will transpire which will reiterate the original message taught by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) of justice and peace.
Overall, this book is an excellent read particularly for those who wish to understand the relationship between certain historical events that occurred between the two revolutions. It provides the reader with an insight into Islamic history through a very detailed analysis and concludes with the renewal of the original revolution that was introduced by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w).
