About this product
- DescriptionA new, revised edition, in paperback, of a highly successful book. 'Islam and the Destiny of Man' is a wide-ranging study of the religion of Islam from a unique point of view. The author was brought up as an agstic and embraced Islam at an early age after writing a book (commissioned by T. S. Eliot) on Eastern religions and their influence on Western thinkers. The aim of 'Islam and the Destiny of Man' is to explain what it means to be a Muslim, a member of a community which embraces a quarter of the world's population and to describe the forces which have shaped their hearts and minds. Throughout the book the author is concerned t simply with Islam in isolation, but with the very nature of religious faith, its spiritual and intellectual foundations and the light it casts upon the mysteries and paradoxes of the human condition.
