Islam at the Crossroads

THIS BOOK IS RECOMMENDED BY FPSC FOR COMPULSORY SUBJECT ISLAMIC STUDIES

Islam at the Crossroads By Muhammad Asad, First published in 1934, this book “Islam at the Crossroads” was written as plea to the Muslims of that generation to avaoid a blind imitation of Western scoail forms and values, and to try to preserve instead their Islamic heritage which once upon a time had been responsible for the glorious many-sided historical phenomenon comprised in the “Muslim Civilization”. But, as it happened, much of what the author had aimed at was subsequently misunderstood by the readers and leaders who failed to grasp the full implications of his call to cultural creativeness and to return to the true ideology of the Qur’an and Sunnah.

This revised edition, it is hoped, would clarify something of the tragic confusion nowadys prevailing in the Muslim world. Thsi is dedicated to the Muslim youth of today, just as the original 1934 edition was dedicated to the Muslim youth of those days.
