Many thinking people now have an inward sense that 21st- century humanity faces stark and urgent challenges that demand wise and decisive responses. Profound illnesses call for profound remedies, and when nothing less than radical change will do, courage is essential to survival. Authentic traditional Islam provides a holistic and historically proven alternative.
In this timely book, Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi shows that revealed knowledge is the source of traditional wisdom and that the Islamic faith and civilization has a veritable 'track record' of healing individual and social disintegration.
The author presents a penetrating diagnosis of the illnesses of humanity today, together with a fascinating overview of the Islamic metaphysics, unearthing its spiritual and moral values and its timeless relevance and applicability. Man and the Universe is a compelling and urgently needed piece of writing about what we human beings are, where we stand and what we can do about it.
