The Boy of the Mosque

In the Year 1258, Baghdad, the capital of the great Abbasid Caliphate, fell to the Moguls. Within hours, the city of enlightenment was swallowed up by darkness, another society becoming a victim of hatred and greed. The mighty Tigris flowed with blue and red, the blood of its people and the ink from the age-old scrolls of knowledge, all heartlessly washed away.

    What a great book, this was much more then I was expecting. Despite all the book I have read all the Muslim heroes have been from the olden days. This is the first time have read a book of modern day Muslim hero who I felt represented Muslims properly. The fact the he fights against evil people who misuse religion for their own personal games gains is even better. I think they are given the right name the devils. The book is cleverly written, and full of suspense and excitement. It is written What a great book, this was much more then I was expecting. Despite all the book I have read all the Muslim heroes have been from the olden days. This is the first time have read a book of modern day Muslim hero who I felt represented Muslims properly. The fact the he fights against evil people who misuse religion for their own personal games gains is even better. I think they are given the right name the devils. The book is cleverly written, and full of suspense and excitement. It is written like a diary account from Khalid (the Boy of the Mosque), and a couple of other people later on. Ahmead Ardalan does a great job of explaining in detail where and how Khalid learned all of the skills he puts to use in this story. This book is a Muslim man fighting against terrorist who have taken over his village. It had a great feel of a man achieving his destiny. I am a big believer in everything happening for a reason, this is a theme done very well in this book all the skills he has learned in the past have brought him to this point. This is a excellently thought out short story. I especially like the line drawn between this freedom fighter and terrorists (who do not represent any religion, but misuse religion for their own purposes).

    A little over hundred pages, The Boy of the Mosque was a good afternoon read. It's all about the valor and perseverance of a man who finds himself in a one-man army, all but determined to make his village free from it's unscrupulous attackers. Other than the lengthy sequences at some places which were distracting from the main theme, the book was well edited with the right level of detail most of the time.

    Ahmad Arjalans novella about the Boy in the Mosque engendered a range of emotions - sadness, comradeship, pain and many more. All for the love of a city and its people.
