Mufti – is an Islamic scholar who interprets and expounds Islamic law. Muftis are jurists qualified to give authoritative legal opinions known as fatwas.

Herman Cyril McNeile (28 September 1888 – 14 August 1937), commonly known as Cyril McNeile. Publishing under the name H. C. McNeile or the pseudonym Sapper. He was a British soldier and author.

Sapper bravely took on the task of writing a condition of England novel. A town called Poperinghe. The ghost town, ravaged by war and utterly devastated. The diverse experiences of soldiers and their loved ones takes us through to the end of the war.

Excerpt:
THE officer lying back in the home-made chair tilted the peak of his cap over his eyes. He let his book slip gently to the ground. A few moments later, after various unavailing waves of the hand, he pulled out a handkerchief of striking design and carefully adjusted it over his face. Then, with his hands dug deep in his pockets to remove even a square inch of skin from the ubiquitous fly, he prepared to slumber. And shortly afterwards a gentle rise and fall of the centre bulldog, so wonderfully portrayed on the bandana, announced that he had succeeded.
To anyone fresh from England who desired to see War the scene would have been disappointing.
