1 in stock
Drawing upon years of unparalleled experience in diplomacy and government, ‘Azzam, the first secretary-general of the Arab League in 1945-1952 examines the social and economic ramifications of the Muslim state. He explains that nationalism and war are repugnant to the spirit of Islam, which is based on the human ideals of law and justice expressed in the Qur’an. He demonstrates how these laws can provide the foundation for a just society in the present century. This Islamic classic is one of the late African-American activist Malcolm X’s readings when he turned towards mainstream Islam, and whose meeting with the author, ‘Azzām, was vividly described in his famous autobiography.
