A regular at ISOC and Garden Grove local, Khalid Baig is a writer on Islam and contemporary issues and the author of First Things First: For Inquiring Minds and Yearning Hearts and Accepted Whispers, among other books. He is also the owner of Al Balagh Books.
He will be talking about his book, Accepted Whispers. This book contains more than 200 du'as from the Qur'an and Hadith in Arabic for daily reading, along with their transliteration, translation, and commentary in English. The commentary explains historic background, meanings, merits, and special significance of the du'a in question. This selection was originally compiled by Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi under the title Munajaat-e-Maqbul. Like his Bihishti Zewar (Heavenly Ornaments), it has been very popular in the countries of the Indian subcontinent, where it has become a household name. This edition aims at making it accessible to the English-speaking world.
Praise for Accepted Whispers
"Khalid Baig's writing is indeed inspiring. The Accepted Whispers is no exception. It is a source of immense solace; an orchard lush with spritual harmony. This is essential reading for the young and the old." --- Maulana Ebrahim Bham, Jamiatul Ulama, Transvaal, South Africa
