The Socio-Political Thought Of Shah WaliAllah-Dr M al-Ghazali

The Socio-Political Thought Of Shah WaliAllah
By Dr Muhammad al-Ghazali
paperback 335 Pages
Publisher : Adam Publishers , India

Good Print but occasionally the cover may be slightly bruised

The Socio-Political Thought of Shah Wali Allah, far from being a study of the subject in isolation, fully reflects this great thinker’s holistic vision of life. Shah Wali Allah regards life, with all its facets, as a manifestation of Divine unity. His thought synthesizes revelation, reason and empirical knowledge to construct a universal paradigm that integrates man’s existential concerns with the moral and spiritual purposes of life, blending these seemingly disparate elements into a meaningful whole.

Shah Wali Allah adopted both short-term and long-term measures for rebuilding the culture, polity and ideological orientation of the Muslims. The thrust of his reform movement ranged from matters of belief to social structure, from politics and statecraft to economy, from legal and juristic concepts to philosophical and metaphysical ideas. He addressed himself to the needs of this world but at the same time did not forget to respond to the requirements of ultimate success in the Hereafter

Significant excerpts from Shah Waliullah's magnus opus 'Hujjat Allah al-Balighah' is here rendered into English.
It also includes a section on the survey of Shah Waliullah's Major Works

The author of this work not only presents an analytical study of Shah Wali Allah’s socio-political ideas, but also allows the great sage to speak for himself. He does so by rendering into English significant excerpts pertaining to socio-political matters from his magnum opus, Hujjat Allah al-Balighah.
