Islam in modern Turkey an intellectual biography of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi by Şükran Vahide ( )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Islam in Modern Turkey presents one of the most comprehensive studies in English of the seminal Turkish thinker and theologian, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (1876-1960). A devout Muslim who strongly believed in peacefully coexisting with the West, Nursi inspired a faith movement that has played a vital role in the revival of Islam in Turkey and now numbers several million followers worldwide. While Nursi's ideas have been afforded considerable analysis, this book is the first to situate these ideas and his related activities in their historical contexts. Based on the available sources and Nursi's own works, here is a complete and balanced view of this important theologian's life and thought."--BOOK JACKET

"This first full-length English biography of the great Turkish Muslim thinker and reformer Bediuzzaman Said Nursi is based on his own works and on accounts of those who have known or met him. It describes his life, works, and struggle, and places Bediuzzaman's ideas and activities in a historical context. It describes his scholarly endeavours in the cause of the Ottoman Empire, particularly in the areas of education, constitutionalism and Islamic unity. It also traces Bediuzzaman's silent struggle through his commentary of the Qur'an collectively known as Risale-i Nur and his opposition of the irreligion of the Turkish republic's early years."

The Words forms the first part of the Risale-i Nur collection, an approximately 6,000-page Qur?anic commentary. In this commentary Bediuzzaman Said Nursi?s main concern is how to save and strengthen one?s religious belief when confronted with the current prevalent materialist philosophy. It does not explain when or why a verse was revealed, but rather the truth that it represents. Subjects discussed are God, resurrection, prophethood, destiny, ego, worship, and how the truth of these matters is revealed through nature. The author also analyzes naturalist and materialist philosophy, as well as

Letters to prisoners by Said Nursi ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (1876-1960) was a scholar, teacher, and striver in God's way who with his profound knowledge of both the Islamic and modern sciences, dedicated his life to revitalizing religious belief. In his view, with its materialism and godlessness, in the contemporary world the most urgent need of Muslims is to strengthen their belief in the basic teachings of the Qur'an and to learn to look at the world and its events from a Quar'anic viewpoint. By gaining such an understanding and unshakeable belief in divine unity and the other 'pillars of faith' they and indeed all humanity may solve the problems of today and find true happiness, in this world and the next. Although this was Said Nursi's sole aim in life, during one period of Turkish history he was misunderstood by the government and spent twenty-five years in exile, driven from place to place and from prison to prison. This booklet, which we are publishing in the hope it will be of benefit to the people of the present, is a selection of the letters he wrote to his fellow-prisoners during the course of this unmerited treatment"--Publisher's description, back cover
