In the preface to the first edition of his book Tarjuman-ul-Quran, Abul Kalam Azad explains the factors that influenced him in his writing. He was convinced that the book, the outcome of 27 years of rigorous study of the Koran, was important for the falah (progress) of the entire quom. He describes the four elements of the Islamic faith as well as the most significant facets of the Din (faith) based on the simple prayer format of Sura Al Fatiha. In the preface to Sura Al Fatiha, Azad expounds on the entire spirit of Islam. He also discusses the ethics of punishment and the six prevailing concepts of God at the time when Islam was revealed: Chinese, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Zoroastrian, and Hindu.
