ISLAM THE NATURAL WAY provides an understanding of the main concerns of Islam and the foundations on which it is built.

It seeks to show that Islam is the natural way for all creation. To discover Islam is to return to one’s natural disposition. To understand Islam properly is to understand something of the true meaning and purpose of life. To live by Islam is to live by natural universal values and to fulfil one’s needs and obligations, naturally.

Islam the Natural Way was first published in 1989 and has been translated into several languages.

AbdulWahid Hamid is a teacher and writer. His books include Companions of the Prophet, Access to Qur’anic Arabic and Burnishing the Heart. He has been active in community work in Trinidad, where he was born, and in Britain.
