Ömer Rıza was one of the most prolific authors of books on Islamic religion in the new Turkish Republic during the single party period (1923-1945). Crowned by his translation-cum-commentary of the Quran published in 1934, Ömer Rıza’s publications were often inspired by his exhaustive reading of Indian Muslim authors, be they translations or adaptations of them. This is largely the result of circulation between the Ottoman and British empires at the beginning of the 20th century – partly resulting from pan-Islamist endeavours – that shaped Ömer Rıza’s own particular profile and personal networks and affected, in his youth, his worldview and Islamic knowledge.
