Ibn Farabi was born in the 1930s British India to a Muslim family where reading the Koran was an inseparable part of daily life and where a devout father, learned in Arabic, often explained the meaning of its verses to the son. A long period of secular education and many years of reading and reflection launched him into an exploration of the Koran. He is an author of several books in other areas. The present work is his first under a pen name.
I hope that a mainstream publisher will find the ideas behind the book important, offer to publish it under its own name and use its sales channels to distribute the book to a wide readership. I am confident that such a readership exists.
