Excerpt from The Faith of Islam

This edition is the result of another fifteen years' study of Islám, and of further intercourse with Musalmáns. It deals with certain phases of modern Muslim thought in India and in Persia which found no place in the first edition. The result is that a considerable amount of fresh matter has been added, though the general form of the book has not been altered. The Arabic editions of the Sahíhu'l-Bukhárí and of the Milal wa Nihal of Sharastání have been freely used, and many extracts from these important works have been made. I have also added two appendices, one of which enters into a technical and detailed account of the art of reading the Qurán and of its peculiar spelling, and also gives illustrations in Arabic of the "various readings;" the other, on the Law of Jihád, I have inserted in order to show the most recent method adopted by a liberal-minded Musalmán of dealing with this important subject.

The criticisms on the first edition of this work were highly favourable, and the general conclusions arrived at in it have not been controverted by any competent Muslim authority, except on the questions of the finality of the Muhammadán Law and of the present use of Ijtihád, on which subjects the late Maulavi Cheragh 'Alí differs from me; but in Chapter iv.
