About The Book

It is now obvious that something has gone very wrong in the West, and that psychological and social alternatives have become pressing issues. In this timely book, Dr. Badawi reminds us that Islam has a historically verifiable track record for healing social chaos and individual tragedy. Sadly, the principles of Islam have all too often been suppressed by the deluge of educational materials, media, and socio-economic strangulation from the West.

Dr. Badawi provides a powerful overview of Islamic metaphysics and unearths its spiritual, social and ethnic values as well as a diagnosis of modern man. This is an urgent piece of writing about what we are and where we are.

In this timely book, Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi shows that revealed knowledge is the source of traditional wisdom, and that the Islamic faith and civilization have a veritable ‘track record’ of healing individual and social disintegration. The author presents a penetrating diagnosis of the illnesses of humanity today, together with a fascinating overview of the Islamic metaphysic, unearthing its spiritual and moral values and its timeless relevance and applicability. Man and the Universe is a compelling and urgently needed piece of writing about what we human beings are, where we stand, and what we can do about it.
