An Innovation in writing the Maqtals[edit | edit source]

By writing the book, Faiz ud-Damou, Mirza Mohammad Ebrahim Nawab, brought an innovation into the writing style of Maqtals that were being written. The author wanted to write a Maqtal in which truth is written and not like the other book which according to the author wrote only what people wanted to hear. Therefore, Mirza Ebrahim has mentioned a large number of sources along with the Arabic text of the narration or the poem that they contain without adding any points himself.
