A Young Muslim's Guide to the Modern World, by one of Islam's greatest contemporary scholars, was written specifically for Muslims, and in particular young Muslims, urging them to become familiar with their religion and to gain an understanding of the modern world from the Islamic point of view in order to respond positively to its challenges. This guide, the first of its kind in any language, presents an exposition of the teachings of Islam as revealed in the Qur'an, explained in the hadith and Sunna of the Prophet and commented upon by Muslim scholars and thinkers, as well as outlining the Western religious and intellectual tradition. --This text refers to the mass market paperback edition of this title

eviewed by Robert Siegel of NPR's All Things Considered, the interview with Seyyed Hossein Nasr won the award for the best radio interview of the year. The author says in this brilliant work, The West has produced many orientalists who have studied Islam from their own point of view, but the Islamic world has produced very few occidentalists who can study the various aspects of Western civilization from its science to art, from religion to social behavior, from the Islamic point of view. Through these Muslim maps of the modern intellectual landscape, the author challenges two fronts: young Muslims to become familiar with their religion and cultural roots and to gain an understanding of the modern world from the Islamic point of view. This guide for the Muslim to the modern worldthe first of its kind in any languagepresents the eternal truths of Islam as well as Western religious and intellectual tradition as they confront each other in today's world. -- Robert Siegel of NPR's All Things Considered
