The Message Of Mohammed
According to the author even most of the writers on Islam in recent times who have approached the subject with the avowed intention of being scrupulously fair and just, have invariably ended with a ?veiled traducement of Islam and its great founder?a traducement which by its iminuations and innuendoes has done more harm and greater injustice to both than the open sweeping condemnations of their declared enemies?. Addressing the Muslims of India in particular, the author states that it is not enough to get at the basic truth of a religion or extract permanent values out of it; for a religion, like all terrestrial things, waxes old with the passage of time. And Islam is no exception to this general rule which time enforces on all things that be. He argues that the obvious way of meeting the ravages of time in the matter of religion is to infuse new life into it in consonance with the life around. And to accomplish this successfully the sheer mechanical enforcement of the Prophet?s commands and enjoinments, the mere otiose observance of his rules and regulations will have to be replaced by something approaching a more living and willing adoption of them with a warning from the past acting as an inspiration for the future. The chapters of the book are : (1) The Struggle of Mohammed, (2) The Allah of Mohammed, (3) The Islam of Mohammed, (4) The Najat of Mohammed, (5) The Iman of Mohammed, (6) The Deen of Mohammed, (7) The Shariat of Mohammed and (8) The Future of Islam.
