Insights into Islamic Humanism: A Comprehensive Approach

Abdul Ali (Author)
Synopsis The present volume is the first attempt of its kind at presenting Islam as religion of humanism in the light of the totality of its teachings as gleaned from the original sources, especially the Qur'an and Hadith (Apostolic Traditions). Contrasting sharply with the stereotyped, distorted image of Islam, it provides penetrating insights into its broad humanistic aspirations aimed at full flowering of all the physical, intellectual and spiritual faculties man has been allowed with and given the status of being the noblest creature. The book deals in detail with the role played by Islam in the advancement of human thought and progress by opening up large dimensions of reason through inculcation of the spirit of scientific inquiry in man. It also objectively assesses the contribution of Islam as a civilizing agency with special reference to its secular, liberal and humanistic aspects in a manner that enables modern minds to understand and appreciate them fully. It is hoped that this volume will not only acquaint the readers with the genuine image of Islam, but also enlighten them on the chief ingredients of its dynamism.
