Introductory Synopsis to the Fourth Component of the Islamic Religion [Concerning the End Times]  & Its Major, Minor and Middle Signs

 

For centuries, the focus of Muslim scholarship has been on the triangle of worship, belief and spirituality – the three essential aspects and foundational sciences of the Islamic religion, i.e., Jurisprudence, Creed and Sufism. 

 

Although these three sciences are studied alongside a fourth essential aspect, i.e., knowing the signs of the Day of Judgement {eschatology}, this fourth component did not receive much attention from early scholars, possibly because the need for it was not as poignant as it is today. 

 

In this book, the author reconnects the fourth aspect and highlights the importance of understanding the changes and challenges facing the world today. It is now an independent discipline called ‘Fiqh of Transitions and Social Changes’. The understanding of the changes and transitions in the world - manifestations of the arrival of the Last Day - enables us to navigate turbulent times.
