The study attempts to bring out the vital relationship between the concept of civilization and Islam's underlying worldview and vision of life. It 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 - 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.



The book is a translation of Mawdudi's "Islami Tehzib awr uskey Usul-o-Mabadi" written in the 1930s at a time when the momentum for independence was growing in British India.

With a Foreword by Zafar Ishaq Ansari, this is an authoritative first complete English translation by Syed Akif, which will be of interest to students and experts alike.
