Description from the publisher:
This book's deceptively simple message can easily be missed. Allah created nature and within it man, woman, and human nature. If man and woman are in tune with their own natures, they are in tune with Allah their Creator, and that is Islam. Not only are they then Muslims, but they are in fact only then truly human beings. If man and woman are not in tune with their own natures, they are out of tune with all nature and are disobedient and rebellious towards Allah, and are, properly speaking, not yet human beings. If man and woman are not in obedience to Allah, they will not fulfill their highest destinies. Being Muslim is simply to be a human being, and there is no other way to be a human being. However, being technically a Muslim 'in name' without being genuinely in submission to Allah or in harmony with one's own nature is the worst of all possible permutations of the themes of this book. Being in harmony with one's own nature is to be in harmony with all of nature and is necessarily to be in obedient submission to Allah, and thus at ease and at home in reality, a friend of Allah in this life and in the next.
