I think the main problem is that people who do not write books, study Islam in detail, learn languages other than the ones they were raised with, and other related activities think that these things are easy and only take a few hours or few days at most. When I wrote my last book, which took me about 9 months to write, I had brothers tell me, 'Oh, I could do that in a few days'. I told them, ok, so why don't you try writing a book in a few days. They probably could write one, but it would be nonsense filled with c&p facts and grammatical mistakes which noone would ever want to read. To write any book doesn't take time. To write a piece of quality work that is based on sound logic and research and is well written takes alot of time. 

Also they think that if you are working 'fe sibilillah' money will automatically fall down from the sky. Anyone who has done this knows that this doesn't happen. It takes cooperation and support from the people to do these things. If there is no support and no cooperation from the brothers and sisters out there who are interested in seeing these projects thru to completion, then the projects will never happen. It is not the person doing the project that decides if it is going to happen, it is the community who decides if the project is going to happen based on their support or lack of support. One or two people working by themselves with no support can do very little. 

Bottom line, if you want to see more books like this in the future, you should support this project by doing what the author is asking and buying, yes buying the book. If you don't want to see books or projects like this in the future, then don't buy and don't support with your money. Believe me, there won't be more. But don't say 'MashahAllah brother, nice work. Well done', then don't support the project in the way the author is telling you (unless you really don't have the extra money, then I understand, but most of you do). Most of you don't think twice about spending $20 to $50 on a tshirt that you will wear a few times and throw away. For less than that, you can gain knowledge of your Imam Zaman(a.f.s) in your own language. I think that's worth more than a t-shirt. 

There are thousands of members here on SC, if at least a few hundred bought the book, the brother would probably have enough to continue to do these works in the future. It is up to you ladies and gentlemen, muslimeen and muslimaat if these projects will continue. The author has already done his part. It is up to you to do yours. 

Brother- could you put the titles and the links to your books here. I would love to read those? Thanks in advance.

Salaam alaykum,

I am very proud to present the culmination of nearly ten years of research on the Twelfth Imam, al-Hujja b. a-Hasan, al-Mahdi, al-Qa'im, the Patron of Time, peace be upon him.

Will purchase a copy inshAllah. Also please PM a link that can be used for donations; it's bizarre to think efforts like this are left unrewarded even if the intent is for rewards in the akhira.

I really want to get my hands on this book. Unfortunately, the cost of this book is very high but I always appreciate any body's effort when it comes to Imam Mahdi a.s. Mashallah brother.

The complaints about the cost are unjustified and unreasonable. The value of a book has nothing to do with its length. It has everything to do with its content. A book like this is invaluable; highly researched material, excellent translation, and a significant topic. 

Some people cannot afford to buy books and that is just a fact of life, due to their situation. If I waited until I had the money myself to buy it, the book might have been sold out. I showed a relative the book on the amazon website and he gladly bought a copy, and I am sure that I will get a chance to read it, alhamdulillah.

You're right sister. 

I should've been clear. My post was referring to the reviewer's comment that brother Qa'im posted.

Agreed

$30 is actually very reasonable by any standard 

Most academic literature is like $50 plus

The link to the Amazon page works where only the paperback is shown. The link to the ebook takes you to Amazon, but it does not show the ebook or the ability to purchase it.

I took it down for the time being, because kindle was messing up the Arabic.

If you want to purchase an electronic copy, please PM me. Thanks.

I ordered your book Qaim.  I'm skeptical on this issue, and see the twelver Imam an invention of man, nothing more. 

However, Id like to see what you have compiled and will respond in more detail once I finish the book.

The great thing is that you are reading...may Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) be your helper. 

Personally for me the darood e Ibrahimi(عليه السلام) is sufficient to confirm the residence of the 12, the succession and the on going present tense of the darood.
