This is a compilation of articles in Urdu on Dr Maqbool Ahmad (1924-2004), a leading surgeon and community leader of Kolkata. The leading article is by the veteran journalist Ahmad Saeed Malihabadi, M. P. (Rajya Sabha), a close friend and associate of Dr Maqbool who was an FRCS and a professor of Kolkata Medical College and Islamia Hospital, Kolkata.

Another, rather detailed, article on Dr Maqbool’s life and milli activities is by the compiler, Mr Abdul Aziz, a known journalist and social worker of Kolkata.

Dr Maqbool was the president of the West Bengal unit of the All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat (AIMMM) and one-time vice president of the national body of AIMMM.

The book contains selections from the writings of some other people who knew Dr Maqbool as well as selections from some of Dr Maqbool’s own writings which were published as “Sada-e jaras” (autobiography) and “Mazameen-e Maqbool”.
