Description

Theology and Philosophy in Islam

In this book the author tries to cover a wide range of topics: from the life and work of prophet Muhammad, and the questions on whether and how the actions and the theology of the prophet can be understood from a Christian angle, to the life and spirituality of great Muslim saints and mystics.

The title of the book is a modification of the Quranic doctrines “I do not worship the way you worship”.

Forward by the Islamic theologian Ashgar Ali Engineer has really enriched the book.

A sure help to narrow the gulf of misunderstanding between Islam and other religion and also project the real essence oflslam to other. In the eye of God there is no question of religion, we are all one. Our duty is only to be humble, polite help the needy people, to please the creator of the world and be ready for his Kingdom.

This book is a scholarly study of Islam with other’s perspective and so not only non-Muslims but also Muslims must read it carefully and respond to it with their own perceptions and understandings of the issues involved.
