GrandeStrategy will be presenting Alija Izetbegovic's book, The Islamic Declaration. Alija Izetbegovic is the former President of Boznia and Hercegovina. Along with Muhammad Iqbal and Muhammad Asad, Alija's work lays the intellectual foundations of what an Islamic State today should be. Please bear with us as we post the book in sections.
The Backwardness of the Muslim Peoples
The Roots of Helplessness
Indifference of the Muslim Masses
Do we want the Muslim peoples to break out of the circle of dependence, backwardness and poverty?Do we want them to step out confidently once more on the road to dignity and enlightenment, to become the masters of their own destiny?Do we want burning courage, genius and virtue to burst forth again in their force?Then we can clearly show the way which leads to this goal: The generating of Islam in all areas of personal individual life, in the family and society, through the renewal of Islamic religious thought and the creation of a united Islamic community from Morocco to Indonesia.
