This book is a translation of the last chapter of Adl-e Ilaahi (Divine Justice) by Ayatullah Mutahhari. It has been translated by Sayyid Sulayman Ali Hasan, and also contains a preamble by Sayyid Mohamed Rizvi who provides a comprehensive view on religious pluralism in the modern context.
The book also contains a biography at the beginning that allows the reader to understand the capacity and status the author had and why his opinion on such matters holds so much weight.
In this book Ayatullah Mutahhari discusses the general views of Muslim theologians and philosophers, especially the ones that promote the thought that all non-Muslims will go to hell and their deeds will be discounted.
Instead, he presents views from the Qur’an and ahadith that explain the delicate balance between intention and action and how the first fuels the second. The book is an excellent read in these times when religious pluralism is a highly debated and often misunderstood concept.
After a warm welcome at the airport and Jamiat uz Zahra - a home to all of us in Qum, we were excitingly waiting for, firstly, the Ziyarat of the holy Shrine of Hazrat e Masuma (s.a) and secondly, with her barakah, to begin the mentor development program (MDP). Alhamdulillah, we had a good rest before we started the next day in full swing.
The Madinah and Bab summer course of 2013 enabled me to gain further knowledge on various topics and about the Ahlul Bayt. Most importantly I was able to seek inspiration from scholars and different places which were visited. This journey was something that not only I was able to cherish whilst being there but until today I feel like I’m living with the experience/memories of yesterday.
