By Sayyid Abul A'la Mawdudi (Author) & Syed Akif (Translator), Islamic Foundation, paperback, 288 pages

Mawdudi argues that the true understanding of Islamic civilization is possible only by having access to the soul of that civilization and its underlying fundamental principles.

These principles being the belief in God, the angels, the Prophets, the Revealed Books and the Last Day rather than to its manifestations in knowledge, literature, fine arts or rhetoric, its social life, its notions of refined living or its system of governance.

With a foreword by Zafar Ishaq Ansari, this is an authoritative first complete English translation by Syed Akif, written in the 1930s at a time when the momentum for independence was growing in British India.
