First Things First

For Inquiring Minds and Yearning Hearts

by: Khalid Baig

This book is a collection of more than 80 popular articles published over a 9 year period in the “First Thing First” column of monthly Impact International (London, England). The articles discuss a broad range of topics and issues confronting Muslims today in both their individual as well as collective lives, ranging from Islamic beliefs and practices to politics, women, and modernity. Written in lucid English, the highly engaging articles aim at providing reflection, exposition, inspiration, and intellectual stimulation.

The author takes the reader on an intellectual journey to find answers for the problems facing Muslims today at all levels. Taking into consideration current social, cultural, and political discussions, he demonstrates how the solution lies in returning to Islamic principles—as valid and necessary today as they were fourteen centuries ago.




“I strongly urge you to read this book.” – Maulana Shabbir Ahmed Saloojee, Principal – Darul Uloolm Zakariyya, Johannesburg

“Khalid Baig’s real genius lies in distilling Islamic Scriptural and scholarly sources into concise, trenchant ruminations on Islam and the contemporary situation of Muslims. With clarity, elegance, and often with quick and ready wit, he brilliantly articulates Islamic perspectives, clears up the confusions created by extraneous influences, and challenges his readers to wake up to their responsibilities as Muslims.

Khalid Baig has a rare and rich gift for both precision and thoroughness: in two to theree pages, he manages to say more than most writers would in several dozen pages. His non-polemical style, calm and measured tone, careful  and balanced opinions, and insightful comments are sure to make this book an engaging and immensely rewarding experience. It deserves to be widely circulated and read by both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.” – Mumtaz Ahmad, PH. D – Hampton University – Hampton, VA
