The majority of the modern Ã¢ÂÂeducatedÃ¢ÂÂ people are today faced with a religious crisis.ÃÂ Is religion really a fact of life? It might have been one in the past, but does it still remainÃÂ so in the world of today when science has changed the whole course of life, and whenÃÂ there is no place in it for anything save science and what scientific facts approve of? DoesÃÂ religion represent a genuine need of humanity? Or is it something wholly dependent uponÃÂ the temperamental constitution of an individual so that one may not believe in it as thereÃÂ is no difference between the two states of belief and unbelief Ã¢ÂÂ?ÃÂ Talking about Islam they betray a similar state of intellectual crisis when theÃÂ missionaries of Islam tell them that Islam is not a mere creed, nor does it represent simplyÃÂ an edification of souls, or a refinement and training of human virtues but is rather aÃÂ harmonious whole that also includes a just economic system, a well-balanced socialÃÂ organization, codes of civil, criminal as well as international law, & philosophicalÃÂ outlook upon life along with a system of physical instruction, all of these flowing fromÃÂ the same fundamental creed of Islam and its moral and spiritual temperament. When theyÃÂ hear all this, these Ã¢ÂÂeducatedÃ¢ÂÂ people are greatly perplexed, for they supposed that IslamÃÂ 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 thatÃÂ Islam does not belong to a remote past, it is not obsolete or antiquated but is a living andÃÂ flourishing system of life even at the present moment, as it holds within itself suchÃÂ elements of life as no other system known to humanity does including socialism as wellÃÂ as communism or any other system.
