The End of the World,
[A5] Paperback - 84 pages,
by Shaykh Muhammad Mitwalli Al-Sha'rawi,
Translated into English by Aisha Bewley.
The question of the end of the world is a topic which has captured
the interest of all, including scientists and the pseudo-scientists who
offer theoretical predictions about how the world will come to an end.
Such theories change on a regular basis because they are not based on
true knowledge, which is to be found only in Allah’s Revelation.
this book Shaykh Al Sha’rawi points out the contrast between the
changing perspective of the human being and immutable universe in which
he lives and which provides the human-being with evidence of his
Creator. He also points out how the apparent stability of the universe
can delude someone lacking belief in the Creator so that he fails to
realise the true nature of existence, the transience of the human being
and the necessity of awakening from the delusion of his own power
before death forces him to wake up.
