Revive Your Heart: Putting Life in Perspective is a collection of sincere reminders and advice given by Khan that speak directly to the heart and help readers to change their life for better. As the title suggests, this book is a call for spiritual rejuvenation through deep reflection and understanding of the verses in the Quran. As a founder of Bayyinah Institute, the Arabic Studies educational institution in the USA, the author uses his expertise in the Arabic language to help readers to understand the deepest meaning of the Quran, a process which is supported through the use of relevant examples and analogies that can be easily understood and relatable to everyday experiences and situations.
This thought-provoking book challenges the reader to revise their beliefs and actions, encouraging transformation from within and externally. It serves as a wake-up call to reflect and to rectify a modern Muslim’s relationship and interaction with Allah through du’a (prayers) and His book. It also helps to realign their perspective in that life in this world is temporary and that Jannah (Paradise) is the final destination. It also highlights the pertinent issues and crises such as the disunity in the Muslim community, including the unacceptable attitudes some Muslim communities have towards women, despite the beautiful teaching of Islam that states that we should honour them, and the importance of having a high level of conscience in business dealings and financial earnings.
This book is also an excellent resource for people who want to learn the actual message and the essence of Islam in the sense that what people see in a Muslim individual and Muslim communities may not reflect the beauty and simplicity of the religion. Therefore, if you are Muslim, I would like to take the opportunity to request that you give this book to non-Muslims interested in Islam.
