HUMAN RIGHTS IN ISLAM (Dr. Shaikh Shaukat Hussain)
8 in stock
The beginning of the fifteenth century of Hijra is an event of great significance in the modern history of Islam. It is a testimony of the fact that the eternal truths of the Islamic doctrine can survive the stress and storm of centuries and that the strength of its message remains undiminished. The Muslims of the world can be genuinely proud of their faith and its achievements and the contributions it has made to the moral spiritual, social and political welfare of mankind. The advent of a new era is a moment of great jubilation for the millions of faithfuls round the world, but in the midst of festivities, they need serious reflection on the present state of affairs of the Muslim communities. The Muslim must make an assessment of the dangers which threaten Islam in the cut-throat competition among numerous secular and religious ideologies which are rampant in the world today. The signs in this direction are both encouraging and discouraging. One feels encouraged by the sight that in recent years, particularly since the end of World War II, there has been a widespread resurgence of Islam among the Muslim masses. They are disillusioned and disenchanted with the western materialistic and secular doctrines. At the turn of this century, many leading reformers in the Muslim world, astonished by the material and scientific achievements of the nations in the West, had preached that the salvation of the Muslims rested in emulating the western intellectual and ethical frame of reference in shaping their destiny in the contemporary world.
