About the Author
Jamshed Akhtar is a writer / researcher, about 68 years old, with a degree in Electrical Engineering from AMU (1969), Aligarh, India. He is involved in the study of religion since 1985. In 1996, Akhtar had written a research based fiction. This book entitled 'The Ultimate Revelations' is the first and only Science fiction in the world, with Quran as the central topic. The book outlines the possibility of coded information in Quran and was well covered by almost all the major newspapers of India and UAE. In UAE, this book was presented by Shaikha Azza, daughter of the ruler of Sharjah. In 1998, Akhtar presented a talk on the time, place and source of Noah’s Flood, and a possible location of Noah’s boat, combining pointers from Quran with scientific findings. This talk was presented in a workshop jointly organized by Muslim Association for Advancement of Science (MAAS) and Centre for Studies on Sciences (CSOS) at Khandala. In 2010, his second book, a non-fiction, ‘In Search of Our Origins: How Quran Can Help in Scientific Research’ has been published, and in 2015, his third book ‘Origin and fate of Universe: A Synthesis of Revealed and Scientific Perspectives. The three books provide a complete world view of Akhtar on the phenomenon of revelations. Akhtar hopes to start a collective scientific investigation of this phenomenon involving a panel of scientists, linguists and science historians. Akhtar is also closely associated with several Muslim organizations dealing in scientific study of Islam. Apart from the study on Quran, he is also involved in promoting literacy among rural children of Faizabad, India, and has made a documentary on it. Project IMDAAD designed by Akhtar to connect Muslim Primary Schools and mosques with the Internet, was demonstrated at Lucknow, Aligarh, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Calicut with the help of IOS (Institute of Objective Studies), a Delhi based NGO. It’s mechanism to collect and disseminate information on education, health, business and awareness, drew a strong and positive response from participants.

Reviewed by Tariq Mustafa [...]
Although the author has termed it as fiction, in essence, this book deals with the important theme of what is Man doing in this world? what is his future? and how can Man employ his intellect to the full without considering himself all powerful and independent?
In trying to look for Life and intelligence in the Cosmos and to find signs of an extra terrestrial message from some higher intelligence the novel's hero, a young scientist, is gradually drawn to the notion that such a message already exists on earth but due to various factors including what the author terms appropriately as the "allegiance factor", the full import, significance and crucial importance of the message for the guidance of mankind has not been appreciated, not only by the rest of the world but also by the nominal followers of this message which is actually none else but the Al-Quran
Through the findings researched painstakingly by the young cosmic scientist Hamza, and presented in a scientific symposium to his peers, sometimes in the 21st century, in a most convincing fashion, the author builds up a powerful case that this message emanates not merely from a superior civilization but in fact from THE Intelligence i.e., the Creator, Nourisher and Sustainer of the entire Universe. This conclusion emerges not from blind faith but from an objective study of the contents of the message, which contains information on various subjects, which could not have been known in any conceivable scenario, by the person to whom this message was revealed in the full limelight of history almost 1400 years ago
For the modern generation brought up on the computer and the information revolution, another amazing fact is presented by highlighting the recent discovery that there exists in this message an underlying numerical framework based on the prime No 19 which thoroughly permeates this message and testifies to the most important fact that this message, unlike the earlier revelations has not been adulterated and is still available to mankind in its original and pristine form, in which it was revealed almost 1400 years ago. This cannot be said even remotely about the other messages and revelations which do undoubtedly exist, but not in their pristine form or even in the language in which they were originally revealed, and whose authorship is clearly human considering the large number of contradictions and ambiguities found in their texts by modern scholars, something, which most significantly has not been the case for the message identified by Hamza
On the dustcover the author invites "all to check and verify the arguments and evidences, and either prove him wrong or help him in decoding the first layer of message from the text that may change the face of the planet forever"
Now that accelerating developments in science, technology, information and communication are fast making this vast world of ours into a global commons, and when growth in our political and social institutions have failed to keep pace, and the yawning gap between the" haves of the north" and the" have nots of the south" keeps on increasing, there is a pressing need to recognize and accept that Mankind desperately needs a common code to guide and govern its systems and laws, if our fragile civilization is not to unravel and destroy itself. One Creator, One Universe, One World, demands essentially one system of laws and conduct which will enable mankind to develop to its full potential and make this earth a heaven for all of mankind
The authors essential point is that such a system of laws and code of conduct and guidance can only come from the Creator who understands not only the design of the Universe but the urges and desires driving his creation. Such guidance is not the property of any established group or religion, it is meant for all of mankind and as the message itself proclaims ringingly it must be based on maximum use of the human intellect, which is the crowning glory of man's development and distinguishes him from the rest of the creation.
This book deserves a much bigger exposure and audience than it seems to have received so far since it deals with matters, which are of crucial concern to the future of all of us and need serious and careful study. I cannot help feeling that by presenting it in a fictional garb the author has not done justice to himself or his book. The author deserves our sincere thanks for his painstaking but successful effort. A short introduction to the author's background would certainly help, which is not available in the book.
