Islam The Covenants Fulfilled - Hardcover
Author: Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas
Publisher: Ta'dib International
The title of this book refers to the fulfillment of the two Covenants: the Covenant of the Children of Ādam and their descendants with God acknowledging His Lordship over them; and the Covenant of the Prophets, i.e. of Nūḥ, of Ibrāhim, of Mūsā, and of ‘Īsā with God. They were asked to acknowledge the coming of a Messenger after them who would confirm whatever was with them of the Scripture and the wisdom that God gave them, and to believe in him and give him their support. They acknowledged it. Then the Messenger who would come after them, i.e. the Prophet Muḥammad, would come in time and take his turn to confirm for himself whatever was with the Prophets by incorporating them with what was with him, i.e. the Qur‘ān, into the universal religion of Islam that he brought. Thus the Prophet Muḥammad fulfilled both primordial Covenants.
-Preface. Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas-
This book discusses four major themes; (i) The concept and reality of man, (ii) The concept of Dīn in contradiction to the concept of Millah, (iii) The close conceptual relation between the words aslama, muslim,and islām. These explanation is to correct the attempt by some distinguished Muslim scholars to subvert the meaning of islām and to claim that islām existed before being revealed in the Qur'ān, and (iV) The Name of Allāh. Allah is a special name and did not originate from any language.
