 About Book  About Author 

The book broadly surveys the social thought of the Greek, medieval and modern social philosophers and identifies the common feature of an ideal society with those of the Muslim ideal society established by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at Medina.

 

In that context it endeavours to analyze Iqbal's thesis of human Ego being the most vital and enduring unit of social structure that could possibly help rejuvenate stagnant contemporary Muslim societies. Consequently, education and development of Ego is seen to play a pivotal role in laying the foundation on which an ideal Muslim society with updated classical Muslim institutions through Ijtehad could possible be eracted.
