The Eternal Path of Charity - Book Review

© Adee Macdowell, Nov 2022

Zin Eddine lives in Abu Dhabi (UAE). He has written the book “The Eternal Path of Charity” which explains the most fundamental elements in Islam which are : (1) Eaql (Mind) , (2) Fitrah (Goodness) and (3) Tawheed (Law of Divine Oneness). For the Fitrah, it is now well accepted that human beings are born with the natural willingness to help others. This is the topic of the book: Charity.

First, using a scientific concept (2nd law of thermodynamics) and a spiritual view at the water cycle, Zin explains that Allah (SWT) made balance and harmony in nature by some laws of charity. This concept is supported by some Quranic verses related to nature.

Now, because humanity is part of the universe, human beings are also supposed to follow these divine laws of charity. Indeed similar to nature, it is clear in the Holy Quran that faith is always associated with charity. Since consumption is a selfish concept opposite to charity, Zin explains that the challenges we are facing today (global warming, covid etc) are just signs from Allah (SWT) to help humanity to switch their lifestyle from consumerism to charity-based societies.

The book also proposes some teaching methods of the Prophet (PBUH) mainly based on analogies and active learning. The last chapter of the book is about Paradise as the Eternal Spring for those who spend their life helping others.

Zin states that we are created to worship Allah (SWT) and together with helping others, these are highest acts of worship after the five obligations.

It should be noted that the Quran is not a book of science but consistent with science.

Zin says:

"I hope that this contribution and my book will remove some doubts and help you understand Islam."
