Chapter Summary

The independence of a host of human concepts and social institutions from religion lies at the root and heart of secularism/secularisation. At the heart of secularism lies the view that politics, science, art, etc. have an essence and substance that is independent from religion and that religiousness is not a part of their definition. The Prophets historical personality hinges on his spiritual personality and his spiritual personality, in turn, hinges on his religious experience or his revelational experience. Christians say that salvation and felicity are only possible through Jesus. Muslims say that salvation and felicity are only possible through adopting Muhammads way. The connectedness and proximity between the guardian and the disciples spirits and hearts become an unending source of inspiration, linking the two individuals together.
