This is one of the best travelogues in Urdu to have come from a time when travel writing genre boasted great writers such as Mustansar Hussain Tarar, Jamiluddin Aali and Mumtaz Mufti himself.

In this travelogue Mumtaz Mufti employs his signature irreverence to tell the story of his personal relationship with Allah in the mould of Iqbal. [Faarigh tou na bethe ka mehshar mein junoon mera / Ya apna girebaan chaak ya daaman-e-yazdaan chaak]. He questions his God, explores His presence in his life, im

Recommended to Rabie by: Zaid Hamid
It was always intriguing to see people return from Hajj a completely different person. I thought that they just perform some rituals, what's the big deal in that. Why would walking around few places change you? But this book answered some of those questions.

If you have the same questions, this book is for you.

This world is not so simple. You have to open your inner eyes to see the puzzles and mystical dimensions that this earth has for you. It was really a thought provoking book.

Excellent book. Beautifully written. Made you think about the relationship/connection of Allah with his people, How 'Raheem and kareem HE is.
You can't turn the next page of this book without having tears in your eyes.This book deeply touched my heart and made me cry on almost every line.
"Yeah teray pursaarar banday jinay tou nay behshaw hai zouk e khudie"

This is one of the classics that i have every touched in my life.
the way he writes this travelogue, the Safar-nama, the aap-beeti in that safar-nama, the inner of Qudratullah Shahab saahb everything is but exceptional.
Hats off... A True sprtitual feed, though opposed by many muslim moulanas of the past, this book remains in shelfs of the book lovers.

On a Personal note, I am Disappointed...
As a writer, I found him much too visual and psychotic - he should paint, instead.
The People he interacts with/recollects - Shahab sb included - make for a much more fascinating read.

"یہ تیرے پراسرار بندے..ان کا بهید کسے نے نہ پایا".
What a read!
Mufti sahb's honesty and such brave confessions fill every single page with such colors...only magnifies the importance of everything he has to say, and, that with such innocence.
Its a must read indeed.
A book of its own kind, Labbyk!
Ammara Abid

An excellent book, though don't agree with some views of Mufti Sahab, apart from that "Labaik" is a beautiful journey, spiritual happiness of being there and changes that happen before and after "Haj". It's more like an honest confession of an honest man.
Deeply touched while reading, cried and that thought how sinful I'm.
A thought provoking book and classic indeed.
Highly recommended.

The most amazing travelogue i have read. This book will definitely answer the questions that how a person is totally changed after a beautiful journey of Hajj. Labbaik is a book of its own kind. A must read.. Hats off Mufti Sahib

ممتاز مفتی کو مژہب سے بہت کم لگائو تھا لیکن حج نے انھیں بڑی حد تک تبدیل کر دیا۔ ان کا لکھنے کا انداز بے تکلفی والا ہے۔
