A Mawlid Tale (Paperback)
Karim Bakheel is a depressed old man. He despises people and prefers to be alone. He especially hates celebrations and gaiety. During the month of Rabi ul Awwal when Muslims around the world celebrate the Prophet Muhammad's birthday, Karim is deeply bitter and despises anything and anyone who reminds him of the auspicious occasion.
One night he is visited by the ghost of his dead best friend, Javed, who warns him of the errors of his ways. He informs Karim that three Spirits would visit him over the course of the night to offer him one last chance to mend his ways and redeem himself.
