Salaam Brothers & Sisters,
I came across this forum whilst googling the writer Seyyed Hossein Nasr and I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of contribuitions here.
It's very reassuring to see a community in pursuit of knowledge and wisdom, the Islamic Renaisance in progress
Praise be to Allah.
I'm currently compiling a reading list of Muslim intellectuals and having just read Islam and the destiny of Man by Gai Eaton I'm thirsting for more.
Your opinions on Frithjof Schuon, Hamza Yusuf, Seyyed Hossein Nasr and Rene Guenon would be appreciated.
For those interested I was born into Sunni Islam (Hanafi) & with parents from a devbandi background. However, faith has eluded me (or rather I have eludued faith) until recently. Instead, humanism (social & economic justice, global unity ) with an interest in Eastern Philosphy/sprituality have provided the framework for much of my life.
Finding such ideas reflected with profundity, in Islam, has really excited my interest.
Anyway, this is just to say salaam.
