Building a New Society: An Islamic Approach to Social Change

Building a New Society: An Islamic Approach
Author: Zahid Parvez
ISBN: 0-9536768-1-1
Paperback 270 Pages
Revival Publications, Markfield, Leicestershire UK

 

Building a New Society casts light on an issue that has generated much heated debate: how a social change based on Islam should be brought about?

The book expounds the vision of Islam for man and society and presents the broad process Islam has laid down for realising this vision. It reminds the readers of the purpose of the Muslim world-community, highlights the problems and key challenges that are presented by secular-materialism and clarifies the Islamic methodology for guiding and directing social change in a systematic and comprehensive way.

Some of the issues addressed include: What kind of change does Islam aim to promote in social life? Where does the process of change start from? Should change be revolutionary or gradual? What bearing should the social context have on strategies and methods?
