Muslim Civilization: The Causes of Decline and Need for Reform

Muslim Civilisation : The Causes of Decline and Need for Reform
By M Umer Chapra
Paperback 225 Pages
The Islamic Foundation, UK

Muslim civilisation has experienced an overall decline during the last  five centuries after having witnessed a long period of prosperity and comprehensive development. This raises a number of questions such as what factors enabled Muslims to become successful during the earlier centuries of Islam and what led them to their present weak position.  Is it Islam which is responsible for this decline or are other factors which come into play
In this penetrating study has tried answer these questions thoroughly and has then discussed a reform programme that
could help reverse the cycle of decline.

Ibn Khaldun's model of socio-economic and Political dynamics spelt out in his Muqaddimah or Introduction [to History]  has been the main basis of this study, however many recent scholars have also been referred to.

Dr. M. Umer Chapra is Research Advisor at the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI) of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), Jeddah.  Prior to this position, he worked at the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA), Riyadh, for nearly 35 years, retiring as Senior Economic Advisor. 
He has also taught as Assistant and Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin (Platteville), as Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, as Senior Economist and Associate Editor of the Pakistan Development Review at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics, and as Reader (Associate Professor) at the Central Institute of Islamic Research (Pakistan).
He has received a number of awards, including the Islamic Development Bank Award for Islamic Economics, and the King Faisal International Award for Islamic Studies.

'Dr Chapra’s endeavour is outstanding, no less for its extremely ambitious goal (to explain the great historical mystery of why and how Muslims declined) than for  its admirable actual achievement .... He has provided a coherent framework for analysis and reform for all those concerned with the Ummah revival and development.”
Prof Anas.
