ZANAB AL-GHAZALI AL-JUBAILI was born in Egypt in 1917. At the age of twenty she formed a major women's charitable organization which rendered valuable service to the poor , orphans and the underprivileged. Although she had acquaintance with Shaikh Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Ikhwan, since the late 30's and actively particapated in many islamic programmes , she formally joined the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) in 1948. After the assissination of Hassan al-Banna in 1949 , she played a major role in the re-orginazitation of the Muslim Brotherhood .She was arrested in 1965 for an alleged conspiracy to kill Jamal 'Abd al-Nasir and overthrow his government .She was released from prison in 1971 during Anwar Sadat's predsidecny .In addition to being very active in Da'wah work, Zainab al-Ghazali has been a prolific write, contributing regularly to major Islamic journals and periodical. Her latest book is a two-volume study on the Tafsir of the Qur'an. RETURN OF THE PHAROAH relates how, falsely accused of conspiring to kill jamal 'Abd al-Nasir the president of Egypt in 1965 , the author was arrested and imprisoned. While awaiting trial she was subjected to the most terrible and inhuman torture. This book describes in a captivating manner the ordeal which this Muslim activist went thorugh in the notorious Egyptian prison. Instead of dampering her enthusiasam for Islam and the Islamic movement , the afflications and savageries in Nasir 's prisons increased her commitment and dedication to the cause of Islam. This autobiographical work can be considered a historic document in that its author was an aactive withness to one of the most volatile periods of Egypt's contemporary history.

Pharaoh was Fir'aun who disbelieved in Allah and claimed himself to be God. Therefore, Allah sent Prophet Musa 'alayhis-salaam to convey the message of Allah. But Pharaoh continued disbelieveing in Allah. So Allah punished those disbelievers by drowning Pharaoh and his army in the sea. Thus, Allah's wrath came on Pharaoh and his followers. Hasn't anybody read the story pf Prophet Musa 'alayhis-salaam? I have read it, so I thought I should mention about who Fir'aun (Pharaoh) is.
I believe that we should not take interest in reading books based on dwellers of hell-fire like Pharaoh who disbelieved in Allah.
