ISLAM FAITH, STATE AND LAW
RAIS SIDDIQI
Islam is a complete and final faith. It’s not merely an ideology or philosophy, but it is a perfect code of conduct, which commands all aspects of human life in this world and leads to the next world too. Islam, not only teachers its followers, how to lead a successful life, but, it also controls them. Islamic political system is distinct from other systems and its social philosophy is also different from all worldly ideologies.

This book—comprehensive and exhaustive in itself—covers three major aspects—faith, law and polity and polity, in turn, includes governance and diplomacy. The foundation, protection, governance and development of a state and building of nation, all have been discussed in detail. And it has all been discussed in the light of Islamic philosophy, ideology, logic, law and jurisprudence. Hence, the first part is devoted to faith only. In Islam, faith is the foundation of all the institutions.

Hopefully, this work will satisfy the scholarly urge of all those, who may prefer to read this book and would also prove to be a ready reference for all researchers, working on the related subjects.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF HINDUISM A CONTINUING SERIES
NAGENDRA KR. SINGH
Hinduism is, in many respects a unique phenomenon in the History of World Religions. Unlike other religions, Hinduism does not regard the concept of God as being central to it. It is neither a system of theology nor makes any dogmatic affirmation regarding the nature of god. Hinduism does not insist on any particular religious practice as being obligatory nor does it accept any doctrine as its dogma. As a religion. There is no dogma or practice which can be said to be either universal or essential to Hinduism as a whole. Yet Hinduism has persisted through centuries as distinct religious entity. Hinduism is, in a sense, an ethnic religion. The Hindus are verily born and grown in Hinduism, and this condition of birth is so compulsive that many persons who are born of Hindu parents generally conform to Hinduism though they may not believe in many of its doctrines and practices.

Belief in the absolute validity of the Vedas is often mentioned as distinctive attribute of a Hindu. Strictly speaking, Hinduism as a religion must be distinguished from Hinduism as a social organization. If one might at all speak of any distinctive features of Hinduism, one cold mention the belief in the ideological complex of “Karma—Samsara—Moksa” on the metaphysico-ethical plane and the acceptance of the caste system on the socio-ethical plane.
The true glory of Hinduism consists in presenting all these polarities and paradoxes as also various levels of doctrine and practices as constituting a single well co-ordinated religious system.

Salient features of the Encyclopaedia are:

1. Vedic and Brahmanic Religio-Cultural Tradition.
2. Classical Hindu Religion and Civilization
3. Post-Classical Hindu Civilization
4. Hinduism in Modern Perspective.

AMBEDKAR ON RELIGION
NAGENDRA KR. SINGH
For Ambedkar saw religion not as a means to spiritual salvation of individual souls, but as a ‘social doctrine’ for establishing the righteous relations between man and man. Ambedkar’s philosophy of religion does not mean either theology or religion. Theology studies the nature, attributes and functions of God; whereas religion deals with things divine. Theology and religion may be linked together; but they are not philosophies. When we talk of philosophy of religion, it is taken as a critical estimate of the existing religions in general, and in particular to evaluate the teachings and doctrines of each religion, whether it is Hinduism, Islam or Christianity, in relation to man and society, because, a religion, ignoring the empirical needs of either man or of society, does not come upto the expectations of an intellectual like Ambedkar.

The present work contains highly informative and well-researched articles on Ambedkar’s philosophy of religion. The main topics dealt are: Ambedkar’s Interpretation of Religion; Philosophy of Hinduism as Ambedkar Understood; Hindu Scriptures; Hindu Symbolism; Fate of Reformers; Counter

Revolution; Philosophic Defence of Counter Revolution; The Hindu Social Stratification; Away from the Hindus; Caste and Conversion; Dr. Ambedkar’s Contribution to Buddhism; The Religious conversion of Ambedkar; Impact of Ambedkar’s Conversion to Buddhism; Resurgence of Buddhism in its Native Land; Viability of Buddhism; Islam etc.
