Description

A Young Muslim’s Guide to the Modern World, by one of Islam’s greatest contemporary scholars, was written specifically for Muslims, and in particular young Muslims, urging them to become familiar with their religion and to gain an understanding of the modern world from the Islamic point of view in order to respond positively to its challenges. This guide, the first of its kind in any language, presents an exposition of the teachings of Islam as revealed in the Qur’an, explained in the hadith and Sunna of the Prophet and commented upon by Muslim scholars and thinkers, as well as outlining the Western religious and intellectual tradition.

Seyyed Hossein Nasr was born in Teheran to a family of traditional scholars and physicians. After receiving his early education in Iran, he went to America where he studied physics and the history of science and philosophy at M.I.T. and Harvard, where he received his doctorate. Nasr was Professor at Teheran University and founder and first President of the Iranian Academy of Philosophy. He is currently Professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University and author of numerous books including: Islam and the Plight of Modern ManIdeals and Realities of Islam and Science & Civilization in Islam, all published by The Islamic Texts Society.

‘Of all the books Seyyed Hossein Nasr has written, this is the most elegant and informative. It is an extremely valuable and highly commendable introduction to the message of Islam and the contemporary world.’
The Muslim News.

‘Packed full of information on the modern world and the world of Islam… There is much of interest for the non-Muslim readers as well who feel intrigued, fascinated and threatened by Islam as a potent force in the modern world.’
Journal Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs.
