Start your review of Asas-asas Islam. One of the very informative books on basic Islam that I have read. Those Muslims wanting to give this book as a gift to non-Muslim friends, must first read the book themselves, as there are many things about Islam that I only began to understand after reading this book I'm a 'born' Muslim. View 2 comments. An excellent book with lucid, easy to understand exposition of Islamic principles. The writing style is informal and comprehensible for even those who do not know many things about Islam.
The books is an easy read for Non Muslims and contains many things worth knowing even for Muslims. The books begins with an explanation of the Meaning of Islam and goes on to discuss the nature of prophet-hood with importance of the last Prophet of Islam, Muhammad PBUH. It further discusses articles of Islamic An excellent book with lucid, easy to understand exposition of Islamic principles. It further discusses articles of Islamic faith the ways of worship and conduct in daily lives for Muslims and ends with explaining shariah , the Islamic law.
The book presents various arguments in support of Quranic injunctions, however some of the arguments that are given are not satisfactory. The pressing argument that Islam is the only way to reach God is not withstanding since almost all faiths of the world essentially contains more or less the same principles.
However the book will be useful to clear some misconceptions about Islam since it come from an as authoritative figure as Maulana Maududi.
Maulana Maududi was a controversial figure. Born in British India, he later migrated to Pakistan. There he had to face persecution from authorities because his philosophy was coming in direst challenge to Pakistan's foundation Idea of a secular state.
Nevertheless he had a large following and was recipient of many awards. Maulans's idea of a pefect islamic state where Non Muslims are treated as second class citizens is repressive and unreasonable.
The Modern World order of secularism does not find any place in Maududi's ideas. Neverthess Pakistan slipped back from being a Secular to Islamic country and its persecution of Non Muslims very much falls in line with Maududui's philosophy. View all 3 comments. Some slick editing by Yahiya Emerick has given this book a very modern approachable touch. I'd still love to read Maududi's book in its original form though. The book attempts to give a broad based summary of the teachings of Islam to audiences that have 'little or no access to its original texts'.
It is strongest in the opening chapters when it talks about the nature of belief itself and w Some slick editing by Yahiya Emerick has given this book a very modern approachable touch.
It is strongest in the opening chapters when it talks about the nature of belief itself and what Islam is. It describes Islam, or submission to God,as the governing force of the Universe. All physical matter, including our very own bodies, submit to this force in this sense it is the physicists' holy grail: the Grand Unifying Theory of the universe and that human beings, on account of our free will can decide whether to consciously submit to this force or not.
It then goes on to talk about faith in God and obedience as essential factors in the design of this universe. I like the approach that Maududi has taken. His perspective is unique and sets a firm logical foundation for the rest of his book. Other notable chapters include the one on the prophets of God and the final chapter on the overall picture, that of Islam as it is supposed to work in society as a whole, titled How Does It All Fit Together? There is a newer version of the book out on Amazon.
But this version e-book can be bought for just above 2 USD. I really loved this book. Several Islamic concepts were discussed quite well in this book, breaking down concepts in concisely accurate ways. I would recommend this book for any human being who wishes to understand the core of Islam better.
It's not a long read and the translation in today's English makes the read go even faster in my opinion as a native American English speaker. This is a good introduction to what Muslims believe I assume, I don't have a lot of data points to go off of , but there is a lack of citations.
From this book, I learned that one didn't have to be human to be Muslim. The whole universe surrenders to God. As a Muslim my entire life, I think this book effectively and accurately lays down the framework s of how a Muslim thinks and lives. As a more seasoned Muslim, I didn't necessarily learn anything too new and found this to be a bit wordy, though it was a great reminder. I decided to read this book because along my studies of Islam, I've heard of the great scholar, Maududi. Only thing missing was source material hadith and Qur'anic verses by which to convince the reader, who might be a non-Musl As a Muslim my entire life, I think this book effectively and accurately lays down the framework s of how a Muslim thinks and lives.
Only thing missing was source material hadith and Qur'anic verses by which to convince the reader, who might be a non-Muslim, beyond a shadow of a doubt that that is actually what Islam is.
Although, to Maududi's credits, I would say many of the statements are actually based on source material. The Islamic way of life is a beautiful way of life. Thank you, Allah. All I can say is the best way to defend Islam is to practice it. And what is the best motivation to practice it: to learn about it. While reading this book being a muslim I felt that something was missing in my spiritual life which I got through this book. I was re-introuduced to Islam through this amazing book.
Every word of this book left a very good effect on my inner self. Thirdly this book taught me to think and look over everything that is around you and find Almighy Allah there. God is every where if one just have the aspire to find Him. This book contains just one excerpt of Maulana Mawdudi and rest of the articles are from other eminent writers of Islamic conceptions. It is a great book to understand the philosophy of Islam from its core.
Ranging from essentials and basics to the Islam's relation with the modern West, this book does justice to its title. Tiresome, at least for this unbeliever.
Precious information Is merely uttering words make us muslims? This is the argument put forward by the author to his fellow muslim brothers. His stance is crystal clear that he did not stand up to challenge the legal definition of a muslim rather he try to putforward his view on the true definition of a muslim. The testimony of faith is the form of 'how to' become a muslim.
And the realization of the word's two shahadahs significance and implication a 1 Of being a muslim Yeah, I had testified and now I'm a Muslim. And the realization of the word's two shahadahs significance and implication are its meaning.
Thus, we are not a muslim just because the testimony that we uttered nor of the muslim name that we beared, rather it is of knowledge that we have and the full realization of our intima' with Islam that perfected us as a true muslim. The implications and responsibilities. If ibadah meant to be the source of our strengths and will e-noble us in this world why then they have no or little effect in actuality.
The problems in fact lies within the muslims themselves.
