The Last Testament is a unique chronological presentation on probably the most studied book in history: the Magnificent Qur n. It attempts to present the key message, context and history of the revelation of the Qur n sent upon the Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be peace) in order to convey the significance of this momentous event.
The BBC review:
Its almost as though the listener is transported back 1400
years..Aptly titled 'The Last Testament provides an easy platform for the listener to understand and appreciate the universal message of Islam and the Magnanimity of God's words. The ingenuity of the work concisely selects pivotal moments in the life of the Last and Final Messenger of God and how revelation came to be.
It successfully guides you through the early years of the emerging faith and the challenges faced by the Muslims. What this work also manages to convey so succinctly is women's rights, the flight from Mecca to Medina, the build up to this momentous occasion and the mindset of the people of Ancient Arabia prior to the advent of the Qu'ran.
One feels a sense compassion and empathy for the beloved messenger who through his trials and tribulations helped to bring this divine revelation to light as a mercy for all of mankind.
The entire listening experience crystallised and brought to life the key moments of revelation that ultimately changed the course of history. The use of Arabic reciters and English translation enabled the listener regardless of background and interest to absorb the message and fully appreciate the Qu'ran as the bearer of truth and indeed the world's greatest ever miracle.
