Description from the publisher:
This work is a study of the salient features of vitality and frailties of the Islamic society. Its lucid style and bold analysis illustrates on one hand, the simple life, moral grit and burning zeal of great Saints and Saviors of Islam and on the other hand, it fearlessly breaks new grounds by exposing the hypocrisy, greed and selfishness of evil-minded scholars who worked as Prophets of Decadence, and created rift, dissention and degeneration in the Islamic society. In portraying the process of unhappy transition of Muslim intellectualism from the role of "Torch-bearers of Civilization" at one time, to the ignominy of "sickman" of the worked today, the Author impressively assigns the reasons to the unholy disregard of Quranic Wisdom and invokes transformation of the Heritage of yesterday into the Herald of tomorrow, by combing observance of Religion with the simultaneous study and culture of Science and Technology. He observes: "The time to take to study of Science has not only come, but is already past. Either the Muslims now must take to a crash Program of Scientific Education, or they must sink into oblivion for lack of adaptability in the avalanche of irresistible changes coming with the advent of the 21st Century." Persons seeking enlightenment of mind and favor of heart from vivid accounts of Saints of Islam, must read this book in order to glean rapturous delight and to draw inspiration for ennobling their own life and performance.
