Understanding Islam: A New Translation with Selected Letters

Understanding Islam: A New Translation with Selected Letters (Paperback)

£14.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

"Islam is the meeting between God as such and man as such...Islam confronts what is immutable in God with what is permanent in man." These are the opening words of Schuon's classic masterwork on Islam, perhaps the most misunderstood of the great Revelations. The purpose of this book "is not so much to give a description of Islam as to explain why Muslims believe in it". Both Westerners unfamiliar with Islam and Muslims seeking a deeper understanding of the basis of faith will be struck by Schuon's masterful explanation of the spiritual world of Islam. This new edition of Understanding Islam features a fully revised translation from the French original and contains an extensive Appendix with previously unpublished selections from Schuon's letters and other private writings.
