Global Warming and Islam

In Global Warming and Islam Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that the United Nations panel of 25,000 scientists from 130 countries submitted a detailed report on global warming, which was published in the Times of India on February 3, 2007, titled 'Warning Signs'. According to him, the more appropriate title for it would have been, 'Warning Signs of Doomsday' as both Quranic revelation and science now confirm that the end of history, in reality, has come very close. From the Islamic viewpoint, God had made this world for a limited period of time for a test.

Calling People to God

In Calling People to God Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that dawah work has been termed in the Quran ‘the call to God.’ In other words, dawah work aims at bringing people closer to their Creator and Sustainer. Calling people to God is telling them that the only right way of life for them on this earth is to become true believers in God. Man has only two ways of leading his life in this world: the self-oriented and the God- oriented. The self-oriented life is one in which all activities centre on oneself. Such a life is lead according to man’s own thinking.

God Arises

The book “God Arises” was the result of an exhaustive research by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan to prove monotheistic religious beliefs such as the existence of God through science. It strives, moreover, to demonstrate how 20th century research has, on academic grounds, totally demolished the atheistic claims put forward in the 18th and 19th centuries. The book is now accepted as the standard on Islamic position on modern thought, it has been translated into different languages – English, Arabic, Malay, Turkish, Hindi, Malayalam and Sindhi.

In Search of God

A thinker has said, ‘A smattering of knowledge turns people away from God, while greater knowledge brings them back to Him.’ In the book In Search of God, the author Maulana Wahiduddin Khan concludes by examining various theories that the choice humanity have is not between the universe with God and the Universe without God. The real option is between the Universe with God and no Universe at all. Therefore, humanity is compelled to opt for the proposition of the Universe with God. Hence it is logical to say: l exist, therefore, God exists.
