آج کل عجیب رواج چل نکلا ہے کہ ہر پرانی چیز کو کلاسیک کا درجہ دے دیا جاتا ہے۔ فردوسِ بریں کے ساتھ بھی یہی المیہ ہے۔ اِسے اُردو کے ابتدائی ناول میں سے کہا جاتا ہے جبکہ درحقیقت اس کا انداز داستان سے زیادہ قریب ہے کہ ناول کے لئے جو کردار سازی چاہیئے وہ فردوسِ بریں میں نظر نہیں آتی۔کہ [...]

A beautiful translation of Firdaus-e-Bareen, one of the very first Urdu novels. I remember having thoroughly enjoyed the exotic story of Zammurd in search of love. The novel's title is an allusion to the medieval legend of the Ismailis when they were said to have a secretive paradise which was promised to the votaries of the sect who were willing to eliminate their enemies and sacrifice their lives in the process - the equivalent of medieval suicide bombers. But this is just a background. The pr [...]

"نثری شاعری "ہمارے کلاسیکی اردو نثر کی یہی خاص بات ہے کہ پڑھتے ہوئے یوں لگتا ہے جیسے آزاد شاعری پڑھ رہے ہو .خوبصورت جملوں اور تراکیب کا استمال . منظر کشی ایسے کہ تصور میں خود کو وہاں موجود پاؤ .جس طرح اس زمانے میں فدایئں کومصنوعی جنّت کی سیر کروا کر قتل و غارت کروائی جاتی تھی وہی ف [...]

As with any translation, I wish I were able to read the original in Urdu, but this version was well translated and well explained with a thorough introduction and necessary and helpful end notes. Prescient and challenging to certain sociopolitical/religious structures that stood in the 1200s, 1800s, 1900s and now.

One of my favorites! A good piece of writing to dedicate your reading hours to,,, Do read it and trust me your time wont go wasted, u,ll love this book(deserves a "5/5")

It's the first novel based on the Hasan bin Sabah episode. The novel is a mixture of fact and fantasy (more fantasy though). The narrative is focused around a couple that gets involved unwillingly in the on going campaign of Hasn bin Sabah who exhibits the power to grant heaven to those who obey him. Separated from his love, the male protagonist of the story follows a long struggle to be united with his love amidst the confusion about existence, life, death and salvation. One distinguished featu [...]

I am not a great admirer of alternate history; I think it just confuses me. However, alternate histories like "Firdaus e Bareen" do another thing: they generate a longing in me for knowing more, for knowing the other side of the story, and ultimately the truth. I would love to see an action adventure movie on this novel.

Difficult book but worth reading, it will keep you engage
