About the Book

 

The great British Muslim convert and orientalist gives a graphic picture of Islamic culture, cause of its rise and decline, science, art and letters, the relation of sexes and the concept of the city of Islam, etc.

 

Preface

 

The Committee of “Madras Lectures on Islam” has great pleasure in presenting to the public the second series of Lectures delivered at Madras in January last by Mr. Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall on “the Cultural Side of Islam.” In October 1925 the first series of Lectures were delivered in Urdu by Moulana Syed Suleiman Sahib Nadvi on “The Life of the Holy Prophet” which has been published. In the lectures on “Islamic Culture” Mr. Pickthall has vividly portrayed the true picture of Islam and has clearly described the causes for the rise and decline of Islamic Culture. These lectures, resplendent with important quotations from the Holy Qumn and the Traditions of the Holy Prophet, breathe the real spirit of Islam appealing both to the soul and the intellect’.

 

The Committee feels that the lectures, when read by the public, will not only be appreciated, but will really serve the great need of understanding the true Islamic Religion and its Culture. The Committee offers its warm thanks to the learned lecturer and to the distinguished Chairman of the inaugural meeting, the Hon’ble Sir C.P. Ramaswami Ayyar.
