On Developing Theology of Peace in Islam
On Developing Theology of Peace in Islam
Description

About the Book

Islam, for acts of omissions and commissions by Muslims, has become rather most debated religion of the world today. While some think it inspires fanaticism and violence, others maintain it is a religion of peace and deep spiritual appeal. If one goes by Qur'anic teachings as expressed through its verses, not through Sharia'h formulations by the 'ulema, Islam clearly emerges as the latter. Time has come to revive the dynamic and transformative spirit of the Qur'an. It should be remembered that what was just in the past may not necessarily appear to be so in the present. The concept of justice does not change but norms of justice do. Violence can be permitted only in defense and in certain circumstances with strict regulations, so as to reflect the Qur'anic core values. Any violence committed in violation of these core values would become what the Qur'an calls Zulm (oppression), not jihad.

Most of the essays contained in this book were written in this spirit and must be seen as such- as attempt to understand the Qur'an and its values in their true spirit. These essays do not advocate rigidity, but firm faith and there is difference between the two.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
