Abstract

62 the Qur'an and the traditions; without the Arabic text, and in a more modest form, it had been published about ten years back in Karachi. The Right Reverend W. Q. Lash, Bishop of Bombay, has written a short but instructive foreword, which stresses the importance of these prayers as a means of better understanding between the members of the two religions, and he has excellently brought into relief that special feature of Islam which impresses the non-Muslim so much: "No one can read these prayers without a challenge to deepen and renew his surrender to the will and purposes of his Creator, or becoming more aware of that constant need for watch and prayer lest he enters into temptation" (p. VII). The book contains two main parts: those verses of the Qur'an which deal with the prayers of the different prophets (f.i. Abraham, David, Jesus etc.), each paragraph starting with a short life-sketch of the respective Prophet as the pious Muslim sees him. The second part opens with a biography of the Prophet Muhammad, and then continues with the prayers which are found in the hadith-works. One finds here short prayers for all the different occasions, when
