Particularly recommended for those who wants to explore the basics and advanced levels of discussions about the God, e.g. its existence and amazing facts about it; as well as about the here after, prophethood, angels and related matters. The book is also amazing about the way it presents the facts with extraordinary language and approach. Recommended with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book thats really hard to describe 28 April 2013
By Gogol TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
I give this review such a title because this really is a difficult one to describe. Said Nursi was a truly remarkable man and what is most interesting was he was an ever evolving man who while remaining within the traditions of Islam was open to developments around him and the changing face of the world he lived in. In this respect his collection of writings the "Risala" Are one of the most remarkable set of books written in the 20th Century.

This book the words, is one from the collection. One thing I have immediately noticed is its not a book that can be read in a conventional sense (i.e. from front to back) But rather one to be referred to or even read by chapter. The number of subjects covered is huge. Religion, prophets, the saints, prayer, science. Said Nursi clearly sees education in particular in the field of science as one of great importance and sees lack of education and religious practice as the two main shortcomings in the Muslim world. This is no small book, it contains 718 pages. Its a large hardback book beautifully presented to last years.

This is an excellent book and I look forward to reading other sections of the Risala.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book for Life! 19 Dec 2011
By Alper Abi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is about the journey of life. It equips you with all that you need to take on the journey.

Once you read it, you are going to develop a new thinking style that no university degree can offer. You are going to look at the universe in a different way.

You are going to believe in everything based on logical proofs that no philosopher could ever prove.

When I write this review, you know I have written it because it has my signature in it. In the same way the universe has been designed by such a one that he prints his signature on each of his masterpieces.

As a summary this book lets you see the signature of the creator in a very logical manner.

You won't regret reading this book once.

You will regret if you only read it once. I have read it many times, and I still want to read more.

Now don't waste time on reviews and get on with reading the book.

Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 4 Jan 2012
By ARAS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
Besides the book quality, the words inside the book is valuable to read. You agree some of the subject or not. However, this book and its collection is written in really bad conditions such as in prison in immigration in the pressure of the first days of Republic of Turkey etc.

Author spend his life only for Islam and a peaceful world. He tried to explain many things as much as he could.
