27 Feb 2024 Book on leading a life of fulfilment launched at Muscat book fair

Muscat – A unique book titled Planning the Journey – The Path from Womb to Tomb; Towards the beginning of Destiny co-written by two prominent authors from very diverse backgrounds was launched with great fanfare at Muscat International Book Fair on February 25. 

The uniqueness of the book lies in its ability to provide valuable insights for all human beings to discover their purpose and lead a life of fulfilment within the precincts of a religious framework. Using their own faith, resources and background, the authors have put together a manual which if followed can benefit not just an individual but society in general. 

The book is written by Sheikh Aflah bin Hamed bin Salim al Rawahy, a prominent Omani businessman, and Lance Tanaka, an American national. 

Sheikh Aflah is chairman of Al Rawahy Holdings LLC, a reputed business house in Oman, and former deputy president of State Council, Al Shura Council and State Consultative Council for 25 years. He is a well-respected speaker on Islam who uses excerpts from the Holy Quran to direct readers to prudently plan their journey ‘from womb to tomb’ and gain their final reward which is heaven, a press release stated.  

Tanaka, a Japanese-American born, raised and educated in the US, is the CEO of Lance Tanaka Group. He is the author of many practical books on how to develop a life plan. Tanaka left a successful corporate career to follow his passion to support and mentor the development of others. 

Using verses from Christian scripture, he explains that every  human being has unique gifts which must be discovered and developed leading to a life of purpose and fulfilment. He uses a planning tool called DNA – or Dream and Achieve – to support individuals realise their dreams. 

The book launch, held at the Al Farahidi Hall of Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre, was attended to by prominent personalities and bibliophiles. The book is available at a special promotional price of RO7 at the Al Kaleema al Tayba Kiosk, 5M1 and 5M2 at Muscat International Book Fair. 

The two authors have also jointly established a coaching academy called Oman Strategic Leadership Academy in Wattayah. Located in the Al Rawahy Building, the academy provides courses in DNA as well coaching for executives. Most of the programmes are taught online. Enquiries can be sent to farooqtoobi@alrawahy
