Does Islam support modernism? Can Islamic rulings be applied to the current times? How can Islam be modern when it commands its women to cover themselves from head to toe? These are some questions that we get to hear on daily basis.
I read Islam and Modernism written by Mufti Taqi Usmani in Ramadan. This wasn’t the first time that I was reading this book in my life but it was the first time when I was reading this book in my adulthood.
Islam and Modernism focuses on a lot of Western topics that has brainwashed Muslims for a long time. It logically explains the concept of Islamic rulings and how people have twisted it in the past and still do so in order to make it more convenient for them. The book can challenge your modern mindset with logical arguments. It gives a true meaning of modernism and talks about how Islam encourages modernism.
Mufti Taqi Usmani has done a good amount of research in compiling situations from the past to back up his arguments. His knowledge in Deen is what makes this book worth a read. I’d say that every Muslim must have this title in their book collection, not just for them but for the generations to come.
