Our remarks are based on two works by Abu l-Hasan Ali Nadawi (d. 1999), a well known scholar of Arabic language, Islamic culture and dawah. The first work is Tarikh-i-Dawat wa Azimat, originally written in Urdu then rendered into Arabic as “Rijal al-Fikr wa al-Dawah fi al-Islam” and into English as “Saviours of the Islamic Spirit”. The second work is Islam and the World: Rise and Decline of Muslims and its Effect on Mankind. We shall briefly present Nadawi’s theory of renewal, his approach to understanding the contributions of Islamic scholars, leaders, and Sufi shaykhs in this field, as well as his identification of the causes which have brought about the decline of Muslim civilisation.
