Description from the publisher: This work is addressed both to those specifically interested in Islamic studies and to those who search in a more general way for that satisfaction of the spirit which is so often avidly sought and yet so rarely round. For the large number of people now studying the different aspects of Islam in the West and also for the many Muslims who have lost touch with their own tradition to the point of relying on works in European languages for knowledge of the religion they profess, this book is of the greatest import. It expounds aspects of Islamic doctrine little known and difficult to unveil, yet of the most urgent actuality for those who feel bewildered by the intelIectual confusion of modern times. Moreover, in this as in many of his other works. Frithjof Schuon through the teachings of Islam reveals truths which are of universal (hanif) in the
Our’anic sense) concern to all mankind, truths which alone can give meaning to human existence.” Seyyed Hoscein Nasr
