From the Introduction : Islam is submission to reality. It is a recognition and an acceptance of the way things really are, and not as they appear. Everything is in submission to Allah, who is the Real (al-Haqq). Only humankind and willful spirits (jinn) can rebel against our Creator. Over fourteen hundred years ago, this path of islam was renewed to mark the entry into the last phase of human experience on earth. It was renewed by the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, as the final Prophet and the seal of all Allah’s Prophets, upon them be peace. He was its greatest sojourner, and he never deviated from its course. His blessed footprints remain clear and unchanged for anyone desiring to set out on that ancient Prophetic path.
