Islam - Current
The topic of this book preoccupies the minds of many reasearchers and educationists: is knowing the future of Islam a matter of the unseen that Allah alone knows about? Or it is one of the phenomena that are subject to an objective study and scientific analysis? Or i is, moreover, a treatise which is based on Sayings the Prophet (pbuh) narrated about the spread of his religion and its advanced and retreat?
After all, the personal element intervenes and the subjective views impact proofs for or against the topic!
Accordingly, let's have a stop and acquaint ourselves with two contrasting options presented in this book. Afterwards, we have to return to our own selves and give judgement. This is because the topic is highly dellicate and highly significant.
On the is basis of that judgement we probably should ask ourselves: " How far are we from it?" and " What should we do?"
