The Revolutionary Role of Islam

The Quran tells us that there is no compulsion in the matter of religion. (2:256) However this was not the order of the day when Islam came to the world in the 7th century AD. In The Revolutionary Role of Islam, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that Islam came to make this a reality. As such the expansion of the Islamic empire was not simply a political event.

Discover Islam

In his book Discover Islam, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan helps the reader to discover the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, the essence of the Quran and the spirit of Islam. It comprises of five sections. Life and Teachings of the Prophet Muhammad explains that the prophet’s life is an embodiment of submission to God, and his actions and teachings are reflections of humbleness, compassion, contemplation and concern for others’ well-being.

Islam and the Modern Man

In the book, Islam and the Modern Man, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that the problems that confront man in the present age can all be traced, directly or indirectly, to one underlying cause: the separation of man from God. In the modern age, man has acquired many material comforts, but he has lost his faith in God. The greatest asset that Islam has to offer man today is this belief in God. Islam has preserved the true concept of God in a pure and complete form. It is, therefore, Islam that can help the modern man find the God he so desperately needs.

The Fire of Hell

In the book The Fire of Hell, the author explains that the most powerful motivating force in our lives is fear. Consciously or subconsciously, each and every person functions because of some real or imaginary fear. God has created man: He controls the vast universe and has complete power over man’s destiny. Anyone who truly believes this, will certainly fear God. But there is more to the matter than this: God will raise us up after death and will judge us according to our words and deeds on earth. We are responsible to Him for our actions.
