Footprints in Time
Fahim Munshi, author
This book is a compilation of thought-provoking material drawn not only from the wealth of Islamic spirituality and ethics, but it also enumerates the Qur'anic values of compassion, kindness, graciousness, gratitude and perseverance woven deeply into the anecdotes from the lives of the Islamic narratives of the past. Written in a straightforward style this unique bringing together of up-liļ¬ting and dramatic stories will be a worthy source for anyone wanting to understand Islam, its glorious beauty and unfailing wisdom. A valuable text for people of all faiths.

“How can we be happy and know our purpose? Fahim Munshi has  here assembled a collection of anecdotes and discoveries that offer nourishment to the spirit and inspiration to do good on earth. Footprints in Time offers anecdotes from the Islamic past and  present, some of  which I was familiar with, and others which I had never read before. The  stories range from tales of the prophet Moses, Solomon, David and  Muhammad, upon whom be peace, as well as “guided” caliphs, to 18th century Tipu Sultan, the sultan of Mysore, who ordered a 21-round gun salute to celebrate the United States’ 7th anniversary of independence. Particularly delightful is the retold story of the strange friendship between killer Mark Stroman, who, on a shooting rampage of Muslims right after 9-11, shot Rais Bhulyan and blinded him in one eye. This  story left me in tears.
Fahim Munshi is clearly a contemplative writer  and has studied widely; I would venture to guess he is at times a mystic who cares so much about his fellow man that he has created this gift to the world. Short verses from the Qur’an, quotes from the likes of Malcolm X and bits of knowledge, like the discovery of an ancient city, weave together a book that will help the curious understand why Westerners have been attracted to Sufism and will help fellow Muslims remember the road to real happiness. Hint: forgiveness and doing good to others, no matter the creed, gender or ethnicity, offer the widest door.  If one were to seek out a simple book offering the gems of Islamic  wisdom, one would need to look no further than Footprints in Time.”
