Love at Home tells how parents and children in an Islamic home are knit together by bonds of love and affection, care and compassion, obedience and regard for rights to create an enduring, enriching family life, full of happiness and untold rewards.  Contains eleven stories from the life of the Prophet Muhammad (blessings of Allah and peace be upon him) and his followers which portray a pattern of parent-child relationships which may fast fade away - at the great cost of disintegration of individuals and society - unless we begin to live our lives according to it. It is hoped that this is what both young and old will start doing

Khurram Murad was a visionary scholar who contributed immensely in contemporary times towards the renaissance of Islamic learning and thought, he  was involved in Islamic da'wah and inter-faith dialogue in the West for many  years. In this connection, he addressed dozens of conferences and seminars. His contributions in initiating and promoting strategic thinking on da'wah issues in Muslim countries as well as in countries where Muslims are in a minority have been immense.
As a leader of the Islamic Movement of Pakistan, which struggled for the rights of the people, he was detained in prison without trial in 1964 in Dhaka for three months and was also a Prisoner of War for almost three years in India after the fall of Dhaka in December 1971.His death came in December 1996 ( Sha'ban 1417 AH) in  Leicester UK.
