You must be wondering about what is Forty Rules of Love as per the Prime Minister Imran Khan? For the month of October, PM Imran Khan has recommended to read the book “The Forty Rules of Love”. He has also explained the reason of recommending this book to read. Check out the details we have got here for all of you!
Forty Rules of Love According to PM Imran Khan
The most popular and bestselling book by Elif Shafak “The Forty Rules of Love” is the new recommendation by PM Imran Khan. While suggesting to read this book, PM Imran said:
“This October I suggest our youth to read ‘The Forty Rules of Love’ by Elif Shafak.”
While explaining about the reason of recommending this book to read, PM further added:
“An inspirational book about divine love, Sufism, Rumi & his Murshid Shams Tabriz. I read it a few years back and was deeply inspired.”
According to PM Imran Khan, this book must be considered as the “Book of the month” to read specifically for the youth. This inspirational book is based on Sufism and the definition of divine love as elaborated by Rumi and Shams Tabriz.
Although Prime Minister Imran Khan read it few years back but considered this month the best time to suggest the youth of Pakistan to take out time for reading it.
Well… that’s not the first time PM suggested any book to read. Taking a flashback to the month of May amid Corornavirus lockdown, PM had recommended that the youth should read the famous book ‘Lost Islamic History’.

PM captioned this suggestion post as:
“A great read for our youth during lockdown days. An excellent brief history of the driving force that made Islamic civilisation the greatest of its time and then the factors behind its decline.”
PM Imran Khan Also Recommended to Watch Dirilis: Ertugrul
As we know that, the idea of telecasting Turkish series Dirilis: Ertugrul on national television of Pakistan also came up from PM Imran. He directed PTV management to dub the series in Urdu language as it is worthy to watch for the people of Pakistan.
It is to mention here that the story of Dirilis: Ertugrul is based on Islamic history depicting the warfare and intellect of the Ottoman Empire.
Why PM Imran Suggest Forty Rules of Love?
The idea behind suggesting to read The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak is to bring the youth of Pakistan closer to religion.
A popular book review explains “The Forty Rules of Love” as:
“Elif Shafak unfolds two tantalising parallel narratives — one contemporary and the other set in the thirteenth century, when Rumi encountered his spiritual mentor, the whirling dervish known as Shams of Tabriz — that together incarnate the poet’s timeless message of love.”
