Hedayat previously wanted the title of this book to be Rastgovsky, but his decision was changed.

This book tells the story of some religious missionaries who decide to go to the land of infidelity and invite the people there to Islam, but after they get there, one of them takes the travel money and runs away, and they stay in European countries. And they enjoy themselves and become like strangers.
This story is told by an Arab journalist.
