Description from the publisher: 

This book is based on the author's 1992 Gifford Lectures at Edinburh University. Schimmel explores "Islam using a phenomenological method. . . . {She} takes as her starting point . . . natural phenomena like stones, plants, and animals, and their use in religious and symbolic language. She then {discusses other} . . . signs, such as sacred time and space, ritual actions, forms of worship, the sacred individual, and the community. She concludes with an examination of the individual's response to the mystery of the Divine."

Ch 1: Sacred Aspects of Nature and Culture Ch 2: Sacred Space and Time Ch 3: Sacred Action Ch 4: The Word and the Script Ch 5: Individual and Society Ch 6: God and His Creation; Eschatology Ch 7: How to Approach Islam?
