Gleams of Truth

Gleams of Truth

Prescriptions for a Healthy Social Life

Written in prose but with a verse-like flavour, this is a collection of maxims by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. Very concisely articulated, these maxims expound on the key discussions of the Risale-i Nur Collection, thus it is considered in a sense as the index of this collection which was written years later than this volume. It is filled with wise sayings that remove the veils on the mysteries of human life, while offering strong evidence for God's existence and unity with thought-provoking on-the- target arguments against philosophies of unbelief. Nursi wrote this volume around 1918 when he was a member of the Higher Council of Islam (Daru'I-Hikmet) following his return to Istanbul from captivity in Siberia as the horror of the first great war of the twentieth century was looming across vast lands. The book is a product of an ambitious man who occupied himself with the salvation of humanity both from the hot wars in this world and from the chastisement in the hereafter.
