Religion and Science

In Religion and Science Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that there are two kinds of knowledge: knowledge of things and knowledge of truth. So far as "things" are concerned, they display no attribute that cannot be elucidated by direct argument. But where truths are concerned, it is only indirect argument, which can throw any light upon them. Indeed, in the case of scientific truths, the validity of indirect, or inferential argument is a matter of general acceptance. Since religious truths are proved by the logic of similar inferential argument.

The Reality of Life

Man is born with unlimited potential, yet in the present world he finds only a very limited use for it. According to his nature, man wants to live eternally, but very soon, without his leave, death arrives and puts an end to his life. He harbours an ocean of desires in his heart but these dreams are never realized. In this case, there is no difference between a poor man and a rich man. In this book the author explains why man and the present world are so mismatched.


The True Jihad

Through The True Jihad, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Islam and violence are contradictory to each other. Islam claims to be an eternal religion and violence as a principle is totally alien to the scheme of things in Islam. The truth of the matter is that, all the teachings of Islam are based directly or indirectly on the principle of peace. The concept of Islamic violence is so obviously unfounded that prima facie it stands rejected. Islam is a religion of peace and peace is the only religion for both man and the universe.

The Ideology of Peace

According to the author, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, the book, The Ideology of Peace is a gift to the new generation from a peace-loving person. It attempts to present a complete ideology of life based on peace, which can be summed up in these words: Peace is not an option: it is our destiny. We shall either live with peace or destroy ourselves without it. In this world it is undeniable that the future is for peace alone. There is no future for war or violence. Peace, always desirable for its own sake, has been vital to human progress in every age.
