Universal Dimensions of Islam

Patrick Laude, ed. Universal Dimensions of Islam. Bloomington, Indiana: World Wisdom, 2010.

Islam’s acceptance of other religions remains an enigma for many Westerners. Yet it is Islam’s doctrine of Unity, which affirms one supreme God, as well as its acceptance of multiple prophets, which explains its acceptance of other faiths. The sixteen articles in this volume discuss the fundamental universality of Islam and make the case for it as a religion and civilization intrinsically equipped to address all aspects of the human experience, including the priority of Divine Mercy over Justice, the inclusive nature of prophecy, the emphasis on virtue and beauty, the Islamic ability to assimilate various cultural and ethnic languages, and the capacity of Islamic mysticism or Sufism to serve as a spiritual bridge for interfaith dialogue between diverse religions.
