This book is a compilation of articles on various issues relating to Islamic spirituality and civilization. The articles are written in essay forms and are meant to be as educating and enriching as thought-provoking and challenging. They span a wide range of topics from the Islamic belief system, values, ethics, worldview, society, history, epistemology and education, to the tradition versus modernity dialectics, general development, sustainability, art and architecture. The book thus represents a mosaic of ideas subtly interrelated and woven into a unified total that clearly shows how close to each other Islamic spirituality and civilization are.
There are 45 essays, or articles. With its integrated as well as interdisciplinary approach and method, the book intends to participate in explaining the true sense and value of Islamic
civilization and how amalgamating it with Islamic spirituality is the only way forward.
