"Islam and Religious Pluralism" By Ayatullah Murtadha Mutahhari

Posted on Tue, 2014-12-30 11:53

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.

Available in hardcopy at The World Federation bookshop for 5 GBP, we are happy to announce that you can now also download it as an e-book in .EPUB and .MOBI formats as well.

Applying for the Madinah and Bab course this year was the best decision of my life. It has now been a month since I returned from Iran but every day I think about those treasured and valued 18 days that I spent with my fellow participants and mentors.


As I contemplate on how to pen down my experience as a mentor for the recently concluded WF girls’ youth course, my thoughts run to the time when I was a little girl and yearned to go out and explore the world, similar to these girls who were bubbling with exuberance, vitality and an insatiable thirst for learning new things. My mentoring experience to these girls was exhilarating and a source of enlightenment.


My decision to attend the Madinah and Bab course was spontaneous. Having made the decision to apply, I prayed to the Almighty (SWT) to allow me to visit His Holy Imam Ar-Redha and Sayyida Masumah (AS) once again.
