Product Description

This is the first of very few English books to treat Islam from its own point of view, from within the tradition. It is written for the Western reader interested in Islam and also for the Western-educated Muslim. The author seeks to answer many of the criticisms brought against the Islamic tradition by the West. This book explains, in contemporary language, the truth of Islam which is revealed in the Quran, as followed by generations of devoted Muslims.
The major aspects of the Islamic tradition are discussed in detail, whilst the traditional Islamic doctrines and beliefs are explained in response to criticisms of modern thought , with frequent comparisons to other world religions. this revised edition of Seyyed Hossein Nasr's seminal work includes an updated, extensive, annotated bibliography for each chapter by both Muslim and Western scholars as well as a preface by Titus Burckhardt and a foreword by Huston Smith. This classical book has been translated by the present president of Indonesia.
One of the leading experts on Islam, Seyyed Hossein Nasr is University Professor of Islamic Studies at the George Washington University. He is author of numerous books including The Encounter of Man and Nature, Islam and the Plight of Modern Man, Muhammad: Man of God, Sufi Essays, Islamic Life and Thought and many more
