Overview

The author, an opponent of the unexamined life, seeks to rouse his readers from their intellectual and spiritual laziness and force them to think, really think, about what they claim to believe. He leads the reader away from extreme positions and toward the balanced, middle position that has characterized Islam at its best. He discusses, among other topics, God's existence and unity, what happens after death, human free will, the resurrection, Prophet Muhammad and the Qur'an, and how the Qur'an views modern science.

o How does a religious faith came out of nowhere and conquer a significant portion of the known world, and why does it continues to spread today?
o What is it about Islam that continues to attract people at a time when many other religions are either stagnating or actually losing adherents?
o What does Islam say about God, Heaven and Hell, the life of this world and of the next, sin and forgiveness?

M. Fethullah G�len answers these questions and many others from the viewpoints of rationality, reason, and logic. There is no demand to "believe, or else." Rather, he invites the readers to use their God-given intelligence to understand what they are doing here, why they are here, and where they are going.G�len's tears, sincerity, altruism, and love have captured millions of hearts . His followers preach, teach, and establish private schools all over the world; publish books and magazines, dailies and weeklies; broadcast television and radio programs; fund scholarships for poor students; and avoid politics and political ambition.
