The book - "Evolution of Social Institution of Islam During the Firs Century of Hijrah" is most probably the first and the unique treatise on the-topic, where in the author has discussed in detail, various elements, institutions and social developments of the period. He has also very ably conducted a comparative study of different religions and systems with which Islam came into contact. At the same time, he has given a considerable account of the different schools of thought which sprang up as a result of mental development among Neo-Islamic society. In the book, an effort has been made to determine and assess the various forces, tendencies and impacts that went in to build this great society. At this long distance of time, it is not very much possible to see things and men as they existed in that environment. Islam came into immediate conflict with Judaism, Christianity, Zoroastaranism, Buddhism,. Hinduism and many lesser religions. The newly born Islamic society had to fight for its supremacy and to prove its excellence against scores of national and local cultures. The ancient society was, as it is to-day, greatly influenced by racial prejudices. Islam had to fight against it. But the fight was not easy, as there were many obstacles in the way, which were a direct result of the rapid conquests achieved during the first century Islam. At the same time the rapid conquest in the early period brought immense changes in the customes and habits of the Arabs, and with the collapse of the orthodox caliphate, the Muslim society was greatly changed.
