311 pages. Sayyid Abul A'la Maududi (l903-I979) one of the chief architects and leaders of the contemporary Islamic resurgence, is the most outstanding Islamic thinker and writer of our time. He devoted his entire life to expounding the meaning and message of Islam, inviting individuals to renew their commitment to their Creator, and to organizing a movement to establish Islam fully. In this struggle, he had to pass through all kinds of suffering: between I948 and I967, he was put behind bars on four occasions, spending a total of five years in different prisons of Pakistan; in I953, he was also sentenced to death by a Martial Law court for writing a ‘seditious’ pamphlet, this sentence later being commuted to life imprisonment. In I941, he founded Jama 'at lslami, of which he remained Amir (Chiel) until 1972 and which is one of the most prominent Islamic movements of our day. He authored more than a hundred works on Islam, both scholarly and popular, and his writings have been translated into forty languages. This is no ordinary book, says Khurram Murad in his long Introduction, for it has stirred more hearts and impelled more lives to change their course than any of his more erudite works. In these Friday congregational addresses, Sayyid Mawdudi expounds such familiar themes as Iman, Islam, the Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving, Pilgrimage and Jihad. But, in an unusually beautiful, powerfully reasoned, eloquent and passionate. and yet simple and lucid style, he imparts to these very teachings, which seem so lifeless and irrelevant to life, that life and revolutionary ardour which they must have had when originally proclaimed and instituted. This he does mainly by restoring the vital links between them which, unfortunately, have long since been snapped in Muslim minds and lives — like links between life and Iman, Iman and actions, Jihad and Iman, Iman and history. Having been made whole again and placed at the centre of life, Iman, in Sayyid Mawdudi’s discourse, regains its power to change man and his world. Originally delivered more than four decades ago, in l938-39, before ordinary, almost illiterate farmers and servicemen, it has been meeting the real and great spiritual and cultural needs of Muslims and, despite the passage of time, retains its original freshness. This English version now attempts to bring Sayyid Mawdudi’s message with some of his original charm and vigour to millions of English-speaking Muslims, as well as to other Muslim languages. A book which should inspire every Muslim to think, and renew his commitment of Iman to Allah. KHURRAM MURAD was Director General of the Islamic Foundation. Born in I932, he studied civil engineering at the Universities of Karachi (BE I952) and Minnesota, USA (MS I958), and worked as a leading consulting engineer at Karachi, Dhaka, Tehran and Riyadh. Actively involved in the Islamic movement since I948, he was President, lslami Jamiat Talaba Pakistan (I951-52)
