366 Readings from Islam
366 Readings from Islam
Description
Back of the Book

Islam means ‘submission to God’. A Muslim is someone who has submitted to god, recognizing Muhammad as a prophet of god.

Jaico’s 366 Readings Series is the first comprehensive collection of the spiritual literature of the whole world presented in accessible form. It is aimed at people who wish to broaden their spiritual outlook, and also at the much larger group who have little or no attachment to religious community, but seek spiritual wisdom.

Each volume in the series contains major writings of one of the world’s spiritual traditions, presented in the form of an annual cycle of daily readings.

Series Introduction

Global Spirit Library is the first comprehensive collection of he spiritual literature of the world, presented in accessible form. It is aimed at people who belong to a particular religious community, and wish to broaden their spiritual outlook; and at the much larger group, perhaps the majority of people in the world today, who have little or no attachment to a religious community, but seek spiritual wisdom. Each book contains the major writings of one of the world’s spiritual traditions.

Much of the world’s spiritual literature was designed to be read or heard in small portions, allowing ample time for personal reflection. Following this custom, the books in The Global Spirit Library each consist of an annual cycle of daily readings. Two or more books may be read in parallel at different times of the day; or an entire book may be read straight through. Again following a time-honored practice, many of the original texts have been condensed.

Spiritual traditions differ from one another in their theological formulations; and the history of humankind is blighted by rivalry between different religious communities. Yet theology is no more than human speculation about truths that are beyond the grasp of the human mind. The writings in these books amply demonstrate that, as men and women actually experience these truths within themselves and others, divisions and rivalries fade, and unity is found. May the third millennium be an era of spiritual unity across the globe.

Introduction

Islam means ‘submission to God’. A Muslim is someone who submitted to God, recognizing Muhammad as a prophet of God.

In the year 610 CE, on a mountain outside the prosperous Arabian city of Mecca, a few simple words came into Muhammad’s mind; this was the first of many messages which Muhammad interpreted as divine revelations. He dictated the messages to scribes, and together the messages form the Quran. Muhammad saw himself as one of numerous messenger, sent by God to every nation in every age; and in his life- nine he sought to convey the Quran to the tribes of the Arabian peninsula. After his death his followers carried it beyond their tribal borders, forming a great empire, and ultimately a global spiritual community.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
