Providing a framework of Islamic thought for issues raised in modern times, this cornerstone volume offers important insight into matters of belief through a collection of arguments that assert the importance of a renewed faith in today's world. Stating that belief equals knowledge and that the convictions underlying nonbelief are ignorance and absence of judgment, this spirituality-affirming compendium features essays that introduce the pillars of faith for the Islamic tradition and give a broader understanding of Islam based on the Qur'an. Ultimately hoping to prove the existence and unity of God, this magnum opus is perfect for researchers and students of Islam as well as anyone interested in a broad analysis of the Qur'an and the main tenets of the Islamic faith.
