This excellent book is translated from the original Arabic book ‘Attafkeer’ by Sheikh Taqiuddin An Nabahani, an Islamic jurist, ‘alim, writer and the founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir - the largest Islamic global political party under a single leadership.


Thinking, the reality of thinking and the method to think have been subjects of great inquiry and debate among scholars and philosophers globally. However, various academicians have proposed different inconclusive theories , without anything concrete that clearly defines the Human mind, its reality and how it thinks.


However most philosophers and thinkers studied the reality of thinking (waaqi’ ut-tafkeer) before studying the reality of the mind except for the Communist thinkers who however made clouded judgment due to their biased research in this regards.


This book is a must read for all those people who wish to build a clear and decisive way of thinking. It is a must read for those who want to understand how people think and how to influence people and convince them about their viewpoint.


It is a subject rarely written or spoken about and Nabahani has gone a far way in trying to explain the subject to the readers.

This book is a translation from the Arabic original, Attafkeer by Sheikh Taqiuddin An Nabahani, an Islamic jurist, ‘alim, writer and the founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir - the largest Islamic global political party under a single leadership.

Thinking, the reality of thinking and the method to think have been subjects of great inquiry and debate among scholars and philosophers globally. However, various academicians have proposed different inconclusive theories , without anything concrete that clearly defines the Human mind, its reality and how it thinks.

The reason for not being able to answer this is that most of the researchers discussed thinking before they discussed the mind (‘aql). It is not possible to discover the reality of thinking except after finding out the reality of the mind in definite (yaqeeni) and decisive (jaazim) way. This is because thinking (at-tafkeer) is the fruit of the mind (‘aql), and the sciences, arts and the various aspects of culture (thaqafah) are only the fruit of the thinking. Therefore, it is first necessary to know the reality of the mind in a definite and decisive way. After that, it is possible to understand the reality of the thinking and a correct method for thinking. In light of that, it is then possible to make a judgment on the knowledge (ma’rifah), whether it is a science (ilm) or not. In other words, it is possible to comprehend that chemistry is a science, and what are known as psychology (ilm un-nafs) and sociology (‘ilm ul-ijtimaa’) are not sciences. It also becomes possible to make a judgment on the knowledge (ma’rifah), whether it is a culture (thaqafah) or not. In other words, it is possible to understand that legislation (tashree’) is culture (thaqafah) while painting (tasweer) is not culture (thaqafah). So the whole issue is built on the basis of understanding the reality (waaqi') of the mind (‘aql) in a definite and decisive way. Thereafter, and in light of this understanding, the reality of thinking (waaqi’ ut-tafkeer) is discussed. Subsequently, the method of thinking (Tareeqat ut-tafkeer) is understood, and in its light, it is possible to attain, in a correct manner, the style (usloob) of thinking or styles of thinking.

Attaining the science ('ilm) and culture (thaqafah) must be a result of discovering the reality of thinking, the method of thinking and the style of thinking. Grasping the reality of thinking must be a result of understanding the reality of the mind (‘aql). Therefore, it is necessary to understand the reality of the mind in a definite and decisive way before understanding the reality of the thinking (waaqi’ ut-tafkeer).

In this 119 page book, Taqiuddin An Nabahani explains the reality of the mind, how it works and what are the requirements for human mind to pass a judgment and then explains how human beings think and the method of thinking.
