Islám: The Road Ahead – Reflections of a Bahá’í on Islámic Topics, by Rowshan Mustapha

This book is dedicated to our two sons, Olinga and Balsam for their dedication to render service to all who are around them, as well as to all those who are consecrating their efforts for the betterment of the world.

Foreward

In a recent publication in French, I addressed the Muslims of North Africa living in Europe, who are finding difficulty to live their ritual life the way they would like. The changes brought about by modernity, not only affect the older generation that migrated from North Africa, but indeed totally perplexes the younger generation born in migration.

A thought that has both crossed my mind and found echo with some friends from Asia, was that English speaking Muslims and Muslims residing in English speaking countries may be confronted with difficulties similar to what we in North Africa and our immigrant brethren in Europe are experiencing, with regard to the practicing of their Faith. These difficulties are mainly due to the on-rolling modernity, because of language requirements in international relations and because of the perplexity created by the diverse teachings that emanate from different schools of Islám.

…In Part I of this book, we shall reflect on these questions in the light of the verses that God revealed in the Qur’án. It is my hope that when considered objectively, the explanation given to these concepts may bring joy and happiness to the Reader, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

Part II of this book introduces a new understanding of various subjects that reconciles religions together and concludes that the Hour has in fact struck and the promised Messiah has come.

Part III briefly introduces the Bahá’í Faith, with a glimmer from the life of Its Author, Bahá’u’lláh, His Forerunner the Báb and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá the authorized Interpreter and Expounder of the Bahá’í Faith, as well as a glimpse into the Bahá’í Teachings and Principles.

The Reader will notice that I have included the original Arabic Text for the Qur’ánic verses that have been cited. The Arabic speaking Readers will find this as both helpful and satisfying at the same time.

My only hope and sole desire from this book is to encourage the reflection upon the above mentioned questions with my brethren in the Faith of the One True Almighty God, fervently praying that the dear Readers will find increasing happiness and satisfaction as they go through it.
