The majority of the modern âeducatedâ people are today faced with a religious crisis.Â Is religion really a fact of life? It might have been one in the past, but does it still remainÂ so in the world of today when science has changed the whole course of life, and whenÂ there is no place in it for anything save science and what scientific facts approve of? DoesÂ religion represent a genuine need of humanity? Or is it something wholly dependent uponÂ the temperamental constitution of an individual so that one may not believe in it as thereÂ is no difference between the two states of belief and unbelief â?Â Talking about Islam they betray a similar state of intellectual crisis when theÂ missionaries of Islam tell them that Islam is not a mere creed, nor does it represent simplyÂ an edification of souls, or a refinement and training of human virtues but is rather aÂ harmonious whole that also includes a just economic system, a well-balanced socialÂ organization, codes of civil, criminal as well as international law, & philosophicalÂ outlook upon life along with a system of physical instruction, all of these flowing fromÂ the same fundamental creed of Islam and its moral and spiritual temperament. When theyÂ hear all this, these âeducatedâ people are greatly perplexed, for they supposed that IslamÂ had since long ceased to exist as it has become outmoded and had exhausted all its sefulness. That is why they are surprised when they hear devout Muslims saying thatÂ Islam does not belong to a remote past, it is not obsolete or antiquated but is a living andÂ flourishing system of life even at the present moment, as it holds within itself suchÂ elements of life as no other system known to humanity does including socialism as wellÂ as communism or any other system.
