Anthropology for Muslim Students- Shuja Mirza

Publisher: MIU Press
$15.00

This present work takes as its point of departure the origin of man and traces, in a “historical” fashion, his movement away from that origin. It concludes with the arrival of man on the material plane of existence and his accelerating descent into the modern world. By lucidly describing this journey and the symptoms and underlying causes of the present quagmire, it suggests a solution and a general course of action to be taken. This resolution of the current crisis and discord corresponds to man’s return to his origin and the ascent towards his final destination and goal. On the individual level, it means to embark upon the spiritual journey towards God, a journey that includes self-knowledge and self-purification. On the social plane, it means to cultivate a society that accords with Divine Guidance and conforms to Divine Law and which provides an environment that attracts, nourishes and sustains its inhabitants on a path of spiritual wayfaring.
