إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ﴿5﴾

صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ المَغضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلا الضَّآلِّينَ﴿7﴾

Sirat-all-Adhina an’Anta ‘Alayhim, Ghayril Maghdubi ‘Alayhim wa la-dh-Dhaaliiin

Allah ! send your blessings to the head of
Your messengers and the last of
Your prophets Muhammad , and his pure and cleansed progeny.
Also send Your blessings to all the Prophets and Imams.

These Prophecies were first published as a section of the book, Prophethood, in 1970, by Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania, Dar-es-Salaam. Since then it was reprinted several times in Dar-es-Salaam and Mombasa.

Then The World Islamic Network (WIN) of Bombay, published this section as an independent booklet, under the title, Prophecies About The Holy Prophet Of Islam In Hindu, Christian & Jewish Scripture.

Now the Bilal Muslim Mission wants to reprint it, and I have thoroughly revised the material for this edition, and added the prophecies from the Parsi scriptures.

I hope it will be even more popular than before.
