The Islamic Way of Life : Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi

During January to March, 1948, Sayyid Abul A’la Mawdudi (1903 - 1979) gave a series of five talks, in Urdu, on Radio Pakistan, in which he dealt with the broad and basic principles of moral, political, economic, social and spiritual teachings of Islam. They were immediately published in books and have also been translated into several different languages, the first English translation appearing in 1950. A greatly improved version was published by the Islamic Research Academy, Karachi under the title The Islamic Way of Life (Lahore, 1967). It contained a new translation and an additional chapter on the Islamic Concept of Life, compiled from various writings of Sayyid Mawdudi and providing a concise introduction to the view of man and universe as given in the Divine guidance, which forms the basis of the Islamic way of life. This additional material (contributed by Khurshid Ahmad) was intended to guide the reader to a clearer and better understanding of the basis and content of Sayyid Mawdudi’s short radio talks.
