Islam on Mercy & Compassion
The common perception of Islam in the media is one of austerity and rigidity, and in
extreme cases, severe cruelty. The situation is not helped by the strict and narrow-minded
interpretation of the religion by a number its adherents. However, those who are
willing to scratch below the surface and look further will see that nothing is further
from the truth; that Islam does not teach anything except universal love, mercy,
compassion, peace & benevolence.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri is an eminent and internationally renowned Islamic
scholar, orator and author. In this book, he presents numerous quotations from the
Qur’an and authentic hadith to help the reader discover the prime position of the
qualities of mercy and compassion in the Islamic faith. Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has meticulously
referenced all quotations to ensure accuracy and clarity in order to dispel any
doubts about the matter.
Through his distinctive solid scholarship and methodology, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri
demonstrates how Islam promotes spiritual endeavour, moderation, ease and tolerance,
and is not merely concerned with ritualism and outward forms of piety.
For Muslims, this book is essential reading to help reclaim Islam back from those
who portray it as merely a socio-political enterprise devoid of compassion for humanity
and the rest of creation. Non-Muslims, on the other hand, will be able to appreciate
these lesser known aspects of Islam, which in fact form its core philosophy.
