Many thinking people now have an inward sense that twenty-first century humanity faces stark and urgent challenges that demand wise and decisive responses. Profound illnesses call for profound remedies, and when nothing less than radical change will do, courage is essential to survival. Authentic traditional Islam provides a holistic and historically proven alternative. In this timely book, Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi shows that the revealed knowledge is the source of traditional wisdom, and that the Islamic faith and civilization has a verifiable track record of healing individual and social disintegration. The author presents a penetrating diagnosis of the illnesses of humanity today, together with a fascinating overview of the Islamic metaphysic, unearthing its spiritual and moral values and its timeless relevance and applicability. Man And The Universe is a compelling and urgently needed piece of writing about what we human beings are, where we stand, and what we can do about it. Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi is a consultant Psychiatrist and member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He studied under many shaykhs, foremost among whom is the late Habib Ahmad Mashur al-Haddad. He is also one of the leading contemporary translators of Islamic books. His work includes Book of Assistance, The Lives of Man, Key to the Garden and Degrees of the Soul.
