Quranic Wisdom

In the book, Quranic Wisdom, the author Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that if you read the Quran, you will find that it gives wisdom on all of the subjects relating to human beings. But the basic theme of the Quran is the creation plan of God. God Almighty created the universe, and, it is God Almighty who revealed this book that is called Al-Quran. The primary purpose of the Quran is to reveal that divine plan according to which the world was created and people were settled in it.

The Age of Peace

The purpose of the book, The Age of Peace is to re-engineer the minds of those who think in terms of violence. According to its author, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, the book has a twofold target: first to help those who are engaged in violence realize that the present age is an age of peace. The changes brought about over several hundred years have ushered in an age in which one can attain through completely peaceful means what one could have achieved earlier only through war and confrontation.

Uniform Civil Code

In the book, Uniform Civil Code, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that a common code is in no way related to uniformity or national unity. Even those who follow the same civil code have regularly fought with one another. In reality, the uniform civil code is an impracticable dream. Evidence to support this view exists in the Constitution itself, if we compare Articles 44 and 371-A. Law is not superior to any other social convention created by men. Human law too has its limitations. After a certain point its grip on human society vanishes.

Islam and World Peace

Lucidly written and expansive in scope, the book Islam and World Peace by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan clears up the misunderstandings that abound on the subject of Islamic teachings about peace and war. It clearly states the authentic position on these matters, which is that Islam is a completely peaceful religion. In Islam, peace is the general rule or norm, and war is only an exception. Of the various names or attributes of God mentioned in the Quran, one is As-Salam, or ‘The Source of Peace’. That is to say, God is Peace. Islam’s mission centres on tawhid, the oneness of God.
