Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi was a man of resourceful ingenuity. He showed in hands-on terms how Islam could be used today to solve the problems of Muslims in modern ages. It was his literature that provided the bases for Islamic political system, economic system, cultural system, social system and so on. He showed the Quran as a book of guidance for human life and as a guidebook for the movement to enforce that guidance in human life. (xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/14934970/16656846/name/Maududi.pdf).

The roots of Islamic reawakening in the twentieth century are often traced in the Muslim response to the western colonialism in Asia and Africa. While it may be one contributory factor in the case of few Muslim countries, a global Islamic reassertion, we notice as a wonder even in countries, which were not colonised by the western imperialists. A serious study of the Islamic sources, the Quran and the Sunnah will show that Islam as the way of life and a total system had an innate tendency to activate and reinvigorate from within, the process of Islam re-assertion. The dynamic principle responsible for these occurrences is mentioned in the prophetic hadith as ijtihad meaning the effort and endeavour undertaken for attaining some objective.

Many of his contemporaries were doubtful that Islam could also provide constitutional principles of the Quran but also fought to establish it in Pakistan. Its chief characteristic lies in presenting the meaning and message of the Qur’an in a language and style that penetrates the hearts and minds of the men and women of today’s demonstrations the relevance of the Quran to their everyday problems, both on the individual and societal planes.
