About the Author

Mohammed Kamaludin was born in Jamaica in the West Indies in 1937. He attended the local primary school until the age of sixteen; he went on to study agriculture at the J. Y. C. Institute in Jamaica. Before graduating in 1956, he enrolled in the Jamaican Constabulary Force to do his national service, and while he was there, he learnt classical music. 

He left the force in 1960 and immigrated to the United Kingdom, where he permanently resides. In 1961, while studying electrical wiring, he started to work as a session musician playing a wind instrument and percussion until 1971, when he formed his own recording company and became manager of a few famous artists. 

In 1975, after doing a world tour, including the United States and Africa, he left the music industry, having accepted Islam and having seen the poverty and desperation among some of the people in Africa and the so-called third world. He began to work as an NGO (nongovernmental organizer). 

While he was involved in this line of work, he took a course in psychodynamic counselling. He founded and formed the community in Brixton South London, known today as Brixton Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre. 

Retired from his job as an Imam of His  Majesty's Prison Service U K in 2002, he continues to work with others in the field of management of his community, marriage guidance, and counselling. 

This is his second book on the subject. The first was Love and Mercy, and it was written from his own personal interests, knowledge, and experiences gained over the last forty years working in this field. It has greatly assisted him in producing a book of this nature.
