About the Play:

When 'Jinn: Who Are They?' was first posted on a website it so much impressed a group for the young in London, called 'The Next Step' that it immediately sought permission from the author to perform it live on stage at different venues in England.

Under the influence of the 'Thousand and One Arabian Nights' the Muslims have themselves created an impression that a Jinn is some creature that crawls out of a bottle on some beach patronized by Sindbad. "By perpetuating these orientalist fantasies," according to TB Irving, "We merely make the Quran ludicrous to Western readers, so that it remains in the realm of folklore, which surely is not the intent of its teachings." So the realm teachings of the Quran can only be brought to light by removing the veil of folklore from it. The author with his unique style of exponentially expounding the concept of Jinn along with its peripherals enshrined in the Quran has successfully achieved this objective. As such, this play will be a valuable addition to the shelf of not only Muslims but also of people who are against strengthening superstitious conceptions and thereby aim to overthrow all unfounded assumptions.

Excerpts from Review:

This is a marvellous exposition of the Quranic text. Shahid A. Chaudhary deserves applause for this boldness, for opening new vistas of Quranic intellectual horizons and pursuits in the world of academic knowledge, which everyone has almost forgotten under the veil of conspiracy against the Quran.

-Prof. Dr. Manzoor-ul-Haque, Hyderabad, Sindh

I read the play on Jinn with interest. I found the literary style and language easy to follow. In terms of the subject matter and content, I found the play to be a refreshing and most satisfying read. In the 'Trial' Chaudhary uses very powerful arguments that are rationally and logically developed. In my opinion he has managed, in this play to put across the message of the Quran most eloquently and yet succinctly.

Zabardast, (exceptionally good, impressive and powerful).
