The Political Interpretation of Islam

The present book The Political Interpretation of Islam is a summary of the book Taʿbir ki Ghalati (‘Error of Interpretation’). Here, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan has briefly explained that the writings of Maulana Abul Ala Maududi (d. 1979), the founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami and proponent of a distinctly political interpretation of Islam, are problematic, and continue to be the cause of much strife and conflict across the world. The author has attempted to place the concepts of Islam in their right perspective.
