Islam the Natural Way by Abdul Wahid Hamid provides an understanding of the main concerns of Islam and the foundations on which it is built. It seeks to show that Islam is the natural way for all creation. To discover Islam is to return to one's natural disposition. To understand Islam properly is to understand something of the true meaning and purpose of life. To live by Islam is to live by natural universal value and to fulfill one's needs and obligations, naturally.
It is intended for anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim, who desires to have an understanding of the main concerns of Islam and of the foundations on which it is built.
Essentially it is a personal book. It requires you to think of reality as a whole and to ask, as no doubt you have asked, such questions as: Like countless millions before you you must have asked yourself questions such as: Who am I? Where do I come from? How did the universe come into being? What am I doing here? Where do I go from here? Where do we all go from here? It requires you to think in ever expanding circles of your own condition, your livelihood and your leisure, your family relationships, your neighborhood, community, the environment, people with differing worldviews, matters of global concern and beyond.
A beautiful book written in a style and language that is simple with a layout that has been designed to make the book easy to use and follow.
