THE SOCIOLOGY OF ISLAM
From the Book
The chief characteristic of the Islamic Concept of Life is that it does not admit a conflict, nay, not even a significant separation between life—spiritual and life—mundane.
It does not confine itself merely in purifying the spiritual and the moral life of man in the limited sense of the ivord.
Its domain extends to the entire gamut of life. It wants to mould individual life as well as the social order in healthy patterns, so that the Kingdom of God may really be established on the earth and so that peace, contentment and well-being may fill the world as ivaters fill the oceans.
The Islamic Way of Life is based on this unique approach to life and a peculiar concept of mans place in the Universe.
Mawdudi, The Islamic Way of Life The need of a constantly expanding market for its products chases the bourgeoisie over the whole surface of the globe.
It must nestle everywhere, settle everywhere, establish connections everywhere
