Description :

Belief and Unbelief : Discussions and Comparisons vividly demonstrates the true natures of and difference between belief and unbelief through both concrete and rational arguments and producing the human conscience and basic nature as witnesses, especially through comparisons of belief and unbelief, of right guidance and misguidance.

Using easily understood stories, comparisons, and explanations, the author produces categorical proofs, showing that modern scientific discoveries actually support and reinforce the truths of faith. Said Nursi uses the Qur'anic methodology of addressing each person's intellect, and other inner and outer faculties, to encourage people to study the universe and its functioning in order to understand creation's true nature and purposes, which will, in turn, lead to learning the Attributes of the One and Only Creator as well as their own duties as God's servants.

About the Author :

Bediuzzaman Said Nursi was born a century ago, in 1873, in a village in eastern Anatolia, Nurs, from which he received the name Nursi. He received his basic education from the best-known scholars of the district. The extraordinary intelligence and capability of learning that he showed at a very early age made him popular with his teachers, colleagues and the people.

When he was sixteen years old, he silenced the distinguished scholars who had invited him to a debate (debate was then a popular practice among scholars). This later recurred several more times with various groups of scholars, and he thereby began to be called Bediuzzaman (Wonder of the Age). The time he spent in education paved the way in his mind for the thought that at a time when the world was entering a new and different age, where science and logic would prevail, the classical educational system of theology would not be sufficient to remove doubts concerning the Qur'an and Islam.

He concluded that religious sciences should be taught at modern schools on the one hand, and modern sciences at religious schools on the other. "This way," he said, "the people of the school will be protected from unbelief, and those of the madrasa from fanaticism." After completing a lifetime of almost a century, with every minute spent in the service of faith, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi departed from this world on the morning of March 23, 1960, with complete honour, dignity and victory, leaving behind him the Risale-i Nur Collection that would illuminate this and the forthcoming centuries and a love that would be handed over from generation to generation until eternity.
