Introduction to Islam Dr Muhammad Hamidullah pdf free download, In the annals of men, individuals have not been lacking who conspicuously devoted their lives to the socio-religious reform of their connected peoples.

We find them in every epoch and in all lands. In India, there lived those who transmitted to the world the Vedas, and there was also the great Gautama Buddha.

China had its Confucius; the Avesta was produced in Iran. Babylon gave to the world one of the greatest reformers, the Prophet Abraham (not to mention those of his ancestors like Enoch and Noah of whom we have very scant information).

The Jewish people may rightly be proud of a long series of reformers: Moses, Samuel, David, Solomon, and Jesus among others.

2. Two points are noteworthy: First these reformers claimed in general to be the bearers each of a Divine mission, and they left behind them sacred books incorporating codes of life for the guidance of their peoples.

Second there followed fratricidal wars, and massacres and genocide became the order of the day, causing more or less a complete loss of these Divine messages. As to the books of Abraham, we know them only by the name; and as for the books of Moses, records tell us how they were repeatedly destroyed and only partly restored.

Methods and approaches may differ, but the people of every epoch have left proofs of their attempts to obey God.

Communication with the Omnipresent yet invisible God has also been recognized as possible in connection with a small fraction of men with noble and exalted spirits.

Whether this communication assumes the nature of an incarnation of the Divinity or simply resolves itself into a medium of reception of Divine messages (through inspiration or revelation), the purpose in each case is the guidance of the people.

It is natural that the interpretations and explanations of certain systems should have proved more vital and convincing than others. 3/a. Every system of metaphysical thought develops its own terminology.

In the course of time, terms acquire a significance hardly contained in the word and translations fall short of their purpose.

Yet there is no other method to make people of one group understand the thoughts of another. Non-Muslim readers in particular are requested to bear in mind this aspect which is a real yet unavoidable handicap.
