This chapter provides an outline for the book. It addresses the various reasons why the contemporary Muslim is sorrowful, caught between their pride in their historical Islamic civilisation and religion, and the realisation that their core beliefs have been weighed and have been found wanting. The contemporary Muslim also seeks a role in modern history and wants to contribute to global civilisation, yet misses the spiritual element to do so, which leads to this sorrowful state.

Keywords:   Pre-modern Islam, Islamic reform, Islamic civilisation
