A seminar on ISLAM IN A CHANGING WORLD was held in January 1977 under the auspices of Aligarh Muslim University’s Department of Islamic Studies in which, apart from scholars from all over the country, the Head of the four leading Muslims institutions also participated. They were: Prof. A.M. Khusro, Vice-Chancellor, Muslim University, Aligarh, Maulana Qaari Mohammad Tayyab, Mohtamim , Darul Uloom Deoband, (Maulana) Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi, Nazim, Nadwatul Ulema, Lucknow, and Dr. Masud Husain Khan, Vice-Chancellor, Jamia Millia, Delhi.
The inaugural address at the seminar was delivered by (me) Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi on January 22, 1977. We now feel privileged to publish the address in English for the benefit of those who prefer to read about Islam and Muslims in that language.
The subject of discussion was ISLAM IN A CHANGING WORLD. It consist of two parts, ISLAM and the CHANGING WOLD, and I would like to take this opportunity to present my views clearly on both aspects of the problem so that we can give some thought to it in a free and frank manner.
