REMEMBERING GOD- Reflections on Islam
REMEMBERING GOD Reflections on Islam Gai Eaton Written by the best-selling author of Islam and the Destiny of Man, this is a profound analysis of the most urgent concerns and questions facing us at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Contrasting modern, secular society with religion and tradition in general and with Islam in particular, Gai Eaton clarifies the essential need for spirituality, religion and values based on eternal principles. The continuity and harmony of the religious perspective contrasted with the dislocation and alienation of modern society is the theme that runs throughout the book. Touching on religion in principle: metaphysics, knowledge of the divine and of oneself, supplication, the necessity for purifying the ego; and on the application of religion to society: politics, architecture, the environment and gender relations, Gai Eaton illustrates the subtle harmony of a religious perspective and its ability to transform both the individual and society.
“This book possesses a profound message for both Westerners who are in quest of authentic knowledge of Islam … and for Muslims who are caught in the labyrinth of modern ideas and trends.” —Seyyed Hossein Nasr
