Hina Sami –
What an interesting find! This book was recommended by a friend and I thought it would be a mundane read with a few verses quoted here and there. Quite the contrary is true – it is a well-researched and well-written book that needs to be taught in Colleges and Business Schools so we can produce more empathetic leaders. For far too long, we have been putting off all Islamic literature as ‘irrelevant’ and archaic. This book changes things!
