About the Book:‘Fundamentals of Islam’ is a revised English edition of the critically acclaimed ‘Khutubaat’ (originally written in Urdu). It consists of Friday congregational addresses, in them he expounds familiar themes; like Iman, Islam, Prayer, Fasting, Alms-giving, Pilgrimage and Jihad. Maulana Mawdudi’s passion for Islam and the Ummah is clearly present in these addresses, which are beautifully and eloquently spoken, powerfully and passionately reasoned and yet simple and lucid in style. In this discourse, Iman is placed at the centre of life, so it can regain its power to change man and his world. These addresses, which were originally delivered more than four decades ago from 1939-1939, are still relevant and vital. It has been meeting the real and great spiritual and cultural guidance needed by Muslims; and despite the passage of time, retains its original freshness. This edition restores Maulana Mawdudi’s message with his original charm and vigour to a new generation of Muslims.
