Rising author Abdullah Ibn Mahmud’s highly demanded new entry titled ‘The Prophet’ is now available in the market, both online and offline. In line with his previous works, this time the author has chosen to translate the international best-seller book ‘The First Muslim’ by Lesley Hazleton, a famous journalist who happens to be an agnostic from Jewish lineage. The religious and ethnic background of this acclaimed writer has sparked interest in the Bangla community, especially as the book is on none other than the last prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The question raising eagerness is, how has someone coming from Jewish background viewed the Prophet?
Having authored previous titles on similar issues, Abdullah Ibn Mahmud takes the readers into the desert of Arabia, 1500 years ago, following the footsteps of an orphan who rises up to be the leader of a nation, and the last prophet of a religion. The book analyzes the biography of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) shedding new light upon it, something that the readers are very less familiar with.
It is worth mentioning that the book’s title was officially changed from the original and the translation right for Bangla has been purchased through the due process from the world-renowned Penguin Publications. The sequel titled ‘After the Prophet’ is also in the pipeline.
The author is currently busy with his next project called Sitayan, which is a renewed take on Ramayan, from the perspective of Sita.
Abdullah Ibn Mahmud passed from BUET in 2017 and obtained his MBA degree from IBA (Dhaka University) in 2020. He is well known for his nearly 200 articles on Roar Media which drew readership of 3.5 million people. His published works include Ihudi Jatir Itihash, Otiprakriter Shondhane, Elirin, Secret Missions: Mossad Stories, etc.
Published from Adee Prokashon, ‘The Prophet’ is available on Rokomari.com & other online book-selling platforms and in the major bookshops throughout the country.
