Islam in Kerala
The book presents various arguments in support of Quranic injunctions, however some of the arguments that are given are not satisfactory. The pressing argument that Islam is the only way to reach God is not withstanding since almost all faiths of the world essentially contains more or less the same principles. However the book will be useful to clear some misconceptions about Islam since it come from an as authoritative figure as Maulana Maududi. Maulana Maududi was a controversial figure.
Born in British India, he later migrated to Pakistan. There he had to face persecution from authorities because his philosophy was coming in direst challenge to Pakistan’s foundation Idea of a secular state. Nevertheless he had a large following and was recipient of many awards.
Maulans’s idea of a pefect islamic state where Non Muslims are treated as second class citizens is repressive and unreasonable. The Modern World order of secularism does not find any place in Maududi’s ideas. Neverthess Pakistan slipped back from being a Secular to Islamic country and its persecution of Non Muslims very much falls in line with Maududui’s philosophy.

The book attempts to give a broad based summary of the maham of Islam to audiences that have ‘little or no access to its original texts’. It is strongest in the opening chapters when it talks about the nature of belief itself and w Some slick editing by Yahiya Emerick has given this book a very modern approachable touch.
It is strongest in the opening chapters when it talks about the nature of belief itself and what Islam is. It describes Islam, or submission to God,as the governing force of the Universe.
All physical matter, including our very own bodies, submit to this force in this sense it is the physicists’ holy grail: It then goes on to talk about faith in God and obedience as essential factors in the design of this universe. I like the approach that Maududi has taken. His perspective is unique and sets a firm logical foundation for the rest of his book.
Other notable chapters include the one on the prophets of God and the final chapter on the overall picture, that of Islam as it is supposed to work in society as a whole, titled How Does It All Fit Together? There is a newer version of the book out on Amazon. But this version e-book can be bought for just above 2 USD. From this book, I learned that one didn’t have to be human to be Muslim. The whole universe surrenders to God.
