Edition: 1

Surrounded by the Bay of Bengal, on the sea beach of Saint Martin Island, a barbeque party is in progress, with music and dancing, and, swinging in the waves of the clear blue water, the garbage of plastic one-time plates. Everything about the scene, starting from the name of the island itself, shouts out the victory cry of modern culture, a culture which has been imported from the Western civilization. In order to stand firm in opposing this all-encompassing cultural, political and economic corrosion, the only effective means we can adopt is Islam. That is why, the biggest obstacle that the West faces, while bulldozing worldwide in their pursuit to gain global power, is Islam.

Though current day Muslims do not have a unified authority, Islam itself has its own power, and the source of its power is its basic foundations. Islam's guidelines in governing the human civilization and societal culture teach human beings how to live in harmony with nature and humanity. When human beings disrupt this balance bestowed by the Creator, it sparks a clash of civilizations. What is the main point of collision between Islam and the West? What is that moral foundation which the Western civilization is so afraid of? How are moral consciousness, servitude of Allah, and Islam's moral code merged into one another? The answers to these questions comprise the main content of this book.
