A Thinking Person’s Guide to Our Times

This book takes on the task of determining the challenges and problems of the Muslim Umma in the recent past, the present and, more importantly, in the future and suggest practical solutions for them. Obviously, one short book can hardly address all these issues and suggest solutions without certain simplifications and potentially controversial assertions.

This book takes on the task of determining the challenges and problems of the Muslim Umma in the recent past, the present and, more importantly, in the future and suggerst practical solutions for them. Obviously, one short book can hardly address all these issues and suggest solutions without certain simplifications and potentially controversial assertions. Nevertheless, it presents a systematic analysis and suggested prognosis based on a coherent philosophy. Nothing is more needed in our times, and second to spiritual weakening, the greatest problem of all facing the Islamic World (and indeed the whole world) is lack of understanding of the true natures and essences of things.

This book is an absolute must to understand where the Muslim community is at present and what may happen in the next thirty years. The author has to be commended for compiling an astonishing amount of detail on the various related topics of the past, present and future, which perhaps only a person in his privileged position and academic insight could have provided. Rather than follow conspiracy theories that are abound on the internet and other places, this is the book to read for mind blowing detail but with sound analysis and solutions.

This title has been jointly published with Turath Publishing.

Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad has written a number of books and guides for thinking people, and this small but potent work before you sums up many of his most keen and cogent insights and conclusions; for that reason, this may be his most impactful and motivational work to date.

Hamza Yusuf

This book examines ‘our times’ from an Islamic philosophical world view, looking at the problems facing the Islamic World in the near past, present and future respectively in three mutually complementary parts. At the end of each part, it suggests holistic and easilyapplied remedies to the problems it examines. In other words (and for those who enjoy sonorous German and Greek philosophical terms) it examines the Zeitgeist from the Weltanschauung of Islam and suggests panaceas.

An extremely insightful book

A thinking person's guide to our times is an extremely insightful book written by Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad. It contains an in depth yet comprehensive insight into the Islamic world at large; its challenges and problems and their solution. This book articulates both global and inner crises which are explained in the most comprehensive and informative way. It's a must-have to understand the situation of the Ummah and the Muslim world at large, and to gain an in depth insight into today's problems, on a political, social, economic scale as well as a spiritual scale. Not only are the problems highlighted, but the solutions are also mentioned, eradicating the despair of hope. The change begins when the issue is known and the solution is highlighted, and this book does that very well.

Must read!

A must read for those wishing to understand the challenges of the modern day and the appropriate responses to them. Prince Ghazi summarises the crises that the Muslim ummah is going through in a manner that is accessible and understandable for non-specialists.

Excellent quality and service

I ordered multiple books in the US and they arrived very quickly. The print is very high quality. I’d definitely order again. The shipping cost to the US is a bit high and I feel they should do something about it. Either use a cheaper carrier or make a distribution center in North America. It will make it easier for people to buy iA

A must have for those who seek to understand today's world

This book is remarkably potent in its summary of how the current sorry state of the Muslim world came to be. Prince Ghazi has a unique insight into the problems Muslims face in the post-modern world and offers remedies to the Ummah's individual and societal ills. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough.
