The Muslim world is going through a period of unrest – the product of its disillusionment with capitalism and communism, development and modernization, instant answers and political expediency.
This book argues that the future is controllable, and can be shaped according to the goals and desires of a society. It is possible to conceive and plan a truly epochal Islamic resurgence and work towards its future realization. Islamic Futures will furnish Muslim scholars and intellectuals with preliminary ideas and the basic framework to meet the challenges that they are likely to face in the near future. And for Western readers it will provide an insight into some of the most exciting ideas and developments that are now being debated in the Muslim world.
